I love PrideRock Wildlife Refuge. They took me in and allowed me to interview them and film the animals for my YouTube show. Corey and Robyn were so gracious. Everyone on staff at PrideRock is informed, compassionate and committed. The animals they care for would have never had a chance without this amazing facility. The programs they offer for the community and for individuals are highly educational and accessible. I'm so fortunate to have found such a worthy place I can support. I will always support PrideRock!

Closed to the public, the PrideRock Wildlife Refuge provides a uniquely wonderful home for abused and rescued big cats, bears, and other animals in East Texas. Most of these animals are rescues from circuses and private owner seizures, lovingly brought back to optimum health by the owners and staff through long hours of hard work and dedication.

Immaculately clean enclosures with enrichment features surround the property, and you simply cannot imagine a more loving, competent, and attentive staff.

Large animals require a great deal of funding to provide for them properly.

Please, please consider donating to this worthwhile endeavor. I did. You will find that the owners and staff are wonderful stewards of your donation funds, using them wisely and efficiently. You just simply cannot find a facility more worthy of your funding than PrideRock Animal Rescue.

I had the pleasure of being able to help at PrideRock and it is a memory I will always hold dear. The volunteers and workers that are there every day are committed to the health, love and well being of all of the animals at the sanctuary. I learned allot from being around the workers and Corey told us the stories for all of the residents there. The work they do is nothing short of a miracle. They have taken in these beautiful animals that have often been abused and neglected and shown them love and respect and given them a furrever home. While Leo will always hold a very special place in my heart I have become attached to all of the magnificent animals that reside there.

It takes a very special kind of person to devote their lives to caring for those others are willing to throw away. Carol and her crew go above and beyond to provide for the magnificent creatures. They are not just a mission to them they are a life choice. Carol treats all of them like they are her children and insists the same from her helpers. I have a respect for the people there that words can not express. Bless Carol and everyone involved with this wonderful organization.

I first heard about PrideRock in 2016, and have followed them very closely since. I am amazed at how such a wonderful organization was in my midst and I had no clue! I have had the opportunity to meet the founders, the keepers, volunteers and interns from PrideRock. All have hearts as big as the state of Texas and nothing but love and respect for those they care for.

I am amazed by the number of people who still think that these incredible predators should be pets, and the things they do to them before throwing in the towel and leaving them incapable of self sufficiency in the wild but with a need for space and care that is not widely available.

Without PrideRock - where would their magnificent residents end up - this is not a pleasant thought.

PrideRock is a wonderful organization that rescues big cats and 3 bears to live out their lives in a peaceful happy place. I have been a supporter and donor since 1998 when I first heard about them and I also help volunteer at some of the events to help raise awareness for the animals and to raise money for items needed for the continued betterment of their lives.
The volunteers and staff are wonderful caring people - so happy to support PrideRock!

Pride Rock Wildlife Refuge provides a critical and much-needed sanctuary for all types of large cats, bears, wolves and even a hyena! They are community-minded, responsible and active. The life-long care they provide for these abused and neglected animals that cannot survive in the wild is essential. I am proud to support their efforts and applaud their dedication to this cause.

I interned at this facility a few years ago. They take amazing care of the animals, and the staff truly do love each and every animal. This facility is an amazing refuge for exotics (mainly cats), many of which have been mistreated or come from sad situations. They are dedicated to giving their animals the best lives possible, and are not open to the public, and do not breed-so the owners are clearly not out for any sort of profit or personal gain! Every penny counts, if you can, please give!

I wasn't quite sure what to expect when I went to PrideRock but it FAR exceeded any expectation I could have ever imagined. The animals are beautiful, the facility and grounds are spectacular and the staff is awesome. It is a totally peaceful, wonderful place and I was so honored to be able to visit. It is quite obvious how much the staff LOVES all of the animals and how being part of PrideRock is the center of their lives. I have the utmost respect for them and I'm so thankful they do all they do to give those beautiful animals such wonderful forever homes.
