Review for Forest Animal Rescue by Peace River Refuge & Ranch, Silver Springs, FL, USA
Co-founder and VP Lisa Stoner has been an advocate for animals since she was a kid. This refuge is truly focused on the best-interest of the animals; it is not a zoo or a money-making operation. We don't usually think of big animals like tigers and bears as helpless, but once people have control of them, they become helpless in that they are unable to feed, protect, or advocate for themselves - they are at the mercy of people who may not be able to care for them properly. Forest Animal Rescue saves animals that would otherwise be destroyed. Often these animals have endured years of poor conditions before arriving at the sanctuary. The refuge is serious about the responsibilities they assume when accepting a rescue animal. Once Lisa has them, the rescued animals have excellent care in a spacious habitat for the rest of their lives.
