We're on a mission to alleviate the suffering of animals and advocate the elimination of inhumane wildlife treatment, use and exploitation in entertainment.


Many wild animals bred in captivity are being forced to live miserable lives in backyards, basements, pseudo-sanctuaries, roadside zoos, and traveling circuses throughout the U.S.


Did you know that there are more tigers in backyards throughout the U.S. than in the wild?  International Fund for Animals (IFAW) estimates there are more than 10,000 tigers in the private sector. This number does not reflect tigers that reside in accredited zoos or sanctuaries. Only 3,890 tigers remain in the wild according to the latest estimates provided by World Wildlife Fund (WWF).


Captive raised wildlife are primarily bred for the sole purpose of profit. Unscrupulous breeders of exotic animals play a significant role to supply the demand of the exotic animal pet trade, circuses and traveling acts, photo ops, roadside zoos, commercial ads, movies and trophies for canned hunts.


Most of these animals are forced to live in extreme confinement in unnatural environments. Once the animals are no longer profitable or deemed inconvenient, they are often times destroyed.

The lucky ones will find refuge at a true sanctuary to live out their remaining years. However, most sanctuaries in the U.S. are full and over capacity.  Most do not have the funds or the space to accommodate additional animals.

Under most circumstances, captive raised wildlife cannot be released successfully into the wild. There are a few known conservation projects that have released captive raised wildlife into the wild- the survival rates are very low, especially for carnivores.

When born in captivity, animals have little to no survival skills. Once released, they succumb to starvation and other harsh elements that are foreign to them. In addition, most captive raised wildlife kept as pets or used for entertainment purposes have been declawed and altered in other ways for safer handling.
