Over the last couple of weeks, the Rafah Zoo in Gaza received quite some media attention.

It all started when 'caretakers' used garden shears to cruelly remove a 14 month old lioness’s claws to prevent her from harming visitors. She will forever be mutilated.

On Facebook, our supporters were outraged:

"This is no zoo, this is a torture chamber"

Sadly, this is not the only heartbreaking story coming from the zoo. A month ago, four young lion cubs died due to the cold weather and lack of care. Dozens of animals are still waiting for their nightmare to end.

With your help, we can save these animals and bring them to safety. This is a one time chance and we need your help to make this a reality. Please support this emergency mission and help us make their rescue a reality.
