our Animals in lionsrock

Since FOUR PAWS has taken over the big cat centre in the Netherlands and named it FELIDA Big Cat Sanctuary, several animals have been brought to LIONSROCK Big Cat Sanctuary, our sanctuary for rescued big cats in South Africa. In 2014, six lions were relocated to LIONSROCK, followed by six tigers and another lion in 2015, a leopard in 2016 and a tiger in 2019.
