Animal rescues

Tim the horse, saved during Lion Ark and his companion Rosita

At the end of 2010, securing a ban on the use of animals in circuses in Bolivia, we completed the rescue of EVERY animal from circuses across the country.

Among them was a horse who was destined to be food for circus lions. One of the many Bolivians who supported our rescues was kind enough to offer Tim a home on his ranch, where wild and semi domesticated horses were running free.

This gentle horse took a while to settle into his new home and find friends he was too timid to join the wild horses, but soon found a friend of his own, Rosita. They have since been joined by a stray foal, and these three happy horses have now made their own family group.

ADI Chief Executive Jan Creamer named this gentle horse after our Campaigns Director, Tim Phillips.
