Established in 2002, by Founder and Director, Bobbi Brink, Lions Tigers & Bears is a NO KILL, NO BREED, NO CONTACT animal rescue, sanctuary and educational facility located in east San Diego County. As one of the few exotic animal sanctuaries in the United States accredited by both the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries and the American Sanctuary Association, they abide by the strict standards of care set forth by these accrediting bodies, ensuring all animals in their charge are provided with the utmost care, compassion and attention. Lions Tigers & Bears is situated on 93 acres just outside of Alpine, California, on the edge of the Cleveland National Forest. Located at an elevation of about 4,000 feet, this idyllic countryside provides peace and tranquility for the rescued animals to live out their lives with dignity in a safe and caring environment. Currently, twenty acres are developed with species-specific habitats for their big cats and bears with plans to expand further as additional funds are raised. Lions Tigers & bears is home to more than 60 rescued animals and 19 species, including lions, tigers, American and Himalayan black bears, grizzly bears, bobcats, mountain lions, leopards, an African serval, llamas, horses, goats, sheep, chickens, a miniature horse, miniature donkey, peacocks, and a macaw. Lions Tigers & Bears is a model sanctuary, offering the highest standards of care for rescued exotic animals.
