Animal rescues

Circus seized in Mozambique

Animal Defenders International, conservation group Task Force and a South African animal rights group joined forces to rescue every single animal from the Akef Egyptian Circus, Mozambique. The animals had been abandoned to starve before we moved in to save 6 lions, 3 tigers, 1 African rock python, 3 horses (a mare and her very young foal, plus a stallion), and 7 dogs.
