The Shambala Preserve

August 6, 2014 — Leave a comment

The Shambala Preserve is home to over 40 big cats: lions, tigers, cougars, black and spotted leopards, servals, bobcats, and Asian leopard cats, who live out their lives at Shambala. All have come to the Preserve after confiscation by authorities such as California Fish and Game, the United States Department of Agriculture, the ASCPA, and various Humane Societies. They are from roadside zoos and private citizens who realize that they have purchased an animal that they can no longer handle. The exotic cat trade is a huge business, just under illegal drugs, according to U.S. Fish and Wildlife.

Once an animal is brought to the Shambala Preserve, it remains there for the rest of its life. As a true sanctuary, they do not buy, breed, sell, trade, or subject their animals to commercial use. Their only purpose is to allow these magnificent animals to live out their lives with love and dignity. Each “Wild One” has the best human, nutritional, medical, emotional, and mental care possible.

The Shambala Preserve is founded by former New York fashion model and actress Tippi Hedren who made her debut as an actress in a starring role in Alfred Hitchcock’s film, The Birds. Tippi often speaks to guests about the sanctuary and the lions.
