Special Care Unit at LIONSROCK

Big cats with special needs are cared for in the special care unit.

The mission of the FOUR PAWS sanctuary is to guarantee a life free of suffering and ideal keeping conditions for every big cat. This has been constructed to care for elderly big cats or those needing special attention. 

Aging big cats
In the foreseeable future, many of our big cats at LIONSROCK will reach an age that requires more age appropriate enrichments and surroundings than the rocks and slopes, which are the ideal terrain for young and healthy lions. Older animals need an area that is flat and clearly structured, and which is also more accessible for the vet team on site.
