I am honored to be a Board member of PrideRock Wildlife Sanctuary. Long before I became involved, Gary and Carol Holliman had already dedicated their lives to the rescue and care of these magnificent large cats and other guests of PrideRock. The care and love that each of these cats experience is the result of the dedication and love of Carol and Gary. When you see the cats of PrideRock the content and wellbeing of each guest is evident. Everyone who donates to PrideRock will have a feeling of satisfaction knowing that every dollar is used to ensure the best possible life for these cats.

I have served on the Board for Priderock Wildlife Refuge for over 4 years. This pristine sanctuary for these big cats is an amazing facility. It is beautiful, perfectly landscaped and maintained, spotless freezers and refrigerators for the animal's food and a place that any animal would find happiness. I guess that most of all, I love the fact that Carol and Gary Holliman have devoted their lives to creating a forever habitat for these animals that might not be with us except for the Holliman's. I live about a mile away as the crow flies and I love the peaceful sound of the lions roaring in the still of the evening. They could be enjoying their beautiful grassy play areas, their spotlessly clean cages or even a splash in their own special swimming pools. I am honored to be associated with Priderock Wildlife Refuge.

I live about a mile from the Priderock Wildlife Refuge. I love the sounds of the lions and tigers eating about 7:00 each night. The roar of the animals crosses my lake and pierces the quiet of the night with magical sounds. Priderock performs a service that is unbelievable! The owners, Gary and Carol Holliman display a committment to the care and love of these abandoned and abused animals and have dedicated their lives to the Wildlife Refuge. The 11 acre facility is pristine and the animals enjoy pools to splash around in and the best of food. This wonderful facility deserves every dollar that is donated to them! Tricia Smith

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the number of animals that Priderock has taken in. With unselfish dedication to each and every animal, the owners of Priderock display their committement to the animals every single day.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

I've enjoyed seeing the animals, being around the animals and watching the refuge evolve.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Every member of the staff and the volunteers that I've met have been exceptional in their committments. They work so hard and they never complain.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

save every wild animal that suffers in our society. Animals who were taken as pets but then abused. There is no one to care and love for the animals and Priderock does a fantastic job.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every month

PrideRock Wildlife Refuge is the standard by which all sanctuaries should be measured. Gary & Carol have dedicated their lives to the care of these beautiful creatures. They work tirelessly to ensure they have the best food, vet care, environment and enrichment the cats need to thrive. And these cats do thrive. I consider any animal that finds their way to PrideRock very blessed. And in turn, I feel very blessed to be a lifelong supporter of PRWR.

I have been a supporter of PrideRock Wildlife Refuge for over ten years. I can, without a doubt, say that all donations go directly to the care of these beautiful creatures. Gary & Carol have and continue to provide a safe, beautiful and loving home for all the inhabitants. Over the years, they have continued to make improvements in the sanctuary by building more & bigger enclosures, providing enrichment, and ensuring they provide the appropriate nutrition and veterinary care. Not only are Gary & Carol wonderful caregivers for PrideRock, they also do whatever they are able to help other creatures in need. PrideRock Wildlife Refuge is truly a labor of love.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

knowing that there is a safe place for these beautiful abandoned creatures. It has given me so much joy to be a part of this wonderful sanctuary and given me back faith in this world where so often it seems people don't care.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I can't think of any at this time.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Seeing how happy and healthy the animals are.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Kind, caring & devoted.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Provide a home to more animals and provide the current inhabitants even larger enclosures.

Ways to make it better...

the weather would have been cooler :)

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

People are wary of non-profits due to the misuse of funds by some organizations. Also, people generally have less money to donate at this time.

One thing I'd also say is that...

The creatures that are fortunate enough to find their way to PrideRock will have a forever, loving home.

I have been volunteering my communications services at PrideRock since June 2014. During that time I have had a chance to visit the facility and meet the PrideRock team. The animals are wonderful and it is so awesome to watch them interact - almost like humans - with the staff. Carol and Gary are terrific folks for doing what they do to care for these gorgeous, amazing creatures. It really is difficult to imagine the conditions many of these animals would be living in had they not found their way to PrideRock Wildlife Refuge.

I had the honor of working with a number of the animals at PrideRock for the first time in April of 2014. On first entering the PrideRock Wildlife Refuge gated grounds, it is a apparent that every attention to detail (and code) has been considered and tended to daily. The proprietors, staff and volunteers are kind, attentive and very respectful of the animals' well being. The daily care procedures are well organized, food prep areas and freezers are spotless, and the generous enclosures are kept extremely clean and well maintained. In addition to tending to the residents physical needs and well being, they are also provided with regular and varied enrichment activities and tools - including a beautiful grassy "playground" complete with pool and a tree! Most of these animals have come to PrideRock from less than favorable situations, but they are now blessed with having a wonderful home to live out their rest of their lives in dignity - where they are truly loved, respected, and cared for.

Even though I was there for less than a month I really enjoyed my time there getting to know the cats and getting a feel for what I want to do in my future. PrideRock is somewhere I hope to help out as much as I can.
They love their cats and it really shows. It is a wonderful place I hope to
help whenever I am in town.

This is truly the most amazing place!! Carol, Gary and the wonderful caregivers and volunteers pour their heart and soul into the property and caring for the animals they rescue and protect. PrideRock is a definite labor of love that can be felt from the moment you enter the property. They are true guardians and have given old, unwanted, abused and retired large cats, wolves, wolf-hybrids and dogs a loving and caring forever home where their every need is met. Please support these folks and their wonderful efforts to give a forever home to some of our planet's most beautiful critters. They have my complete admiration and respect.

I have worked for PrideRock Wildlife Refuge going on 4 years now. I have visited and studied at many other facilities in the area as well as some not so close. In my experience at all these places, nothing compares to the devotion, compassion, cleanliness, beauty, and love shared with Gods big cats than PrideRock Wildlife Refuge. I am truly blessed to have been afforded the opportunity to go on this great adventure with mom and pop Holliman. I will do everything in my power to support and watch there humble dreams grow into an even bigger life saving endeavors!

It is overwhelming what they have accomplished. They provide an incredible service
to the Wildlife as well as to the community.

PrideRock is a kind safe place and all animals there are rescues.
I continue to be amazed by their continuous commitment.

Go see for yourself.
It's a memorable outing.
