In the time of a pandemic, it’s important that we give the animals the love and help they deserve, too. As zoos and wildlife sanctuaries have been forced to cease operations indefinitely, keeping the animals healthy and well-fed has been a challenge for the past months. Among those in need is the Lyger Animal Sanctuary of Pililla, Rizal — best known for being home to ligers, cross-breeds between male lions and female tigers.
Besides ligers, the sanctuary is also home to rare and exotic animals like white lions, strawberry tigers, orangutans, camels, albino carabaos, and more. As the facility has lost its main source of income, they need our help to provide the animals with the sustenance and care they need. The great news is that you and I can help; and as a bonus, we get a little something in return, too!
How to help the Lyger Animal Sanctuary
The sanctuary is accepting monetary donations via online fund transfers and bank deposits. A donation worth over ₱500 will get you a Lyger Lover Certificate, which you can use to enter the Lyger Animal Sanctuary when it reopens. A total of four visitors may enjoy free entry upon presenting the certificate!
How to donate
