COVID-19: Our sanctuaries need your help!

Visitors generate most of the income of our sanctuaries. Last year was the first time we had to close our doors to ensure the safety and well-being of all involved because of COVID-19. Today, our sanctuaries depend on your donations.

Giving animals a second chance in life

The FOUR PAWS SANCTUARIES offer a safe haven for rescued animals, providing animals from all over the world a life-long home in a near-natural habitat. In our sanctuaries, we provide our animals with a second chance to live the life that was meant for them.

After being rescued, many of our animals go through a mental and physical transition and transformation as they have been deprived of their natural needs and instincts for many years.

At our sanctuaries, we ensure that the process from their previous life transitions safely, with full attention to their physical and behavioural needs.


We operate ten animal sanctuaries around the world, based in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Ukraine, Kosovo and Bulgaria; including LIONSROCK our big cat sanctuary in South Africa, home to more than 100 rescued big cats, and our BEAR SANCTUARY Ninh Bihn in Vietnam with more than 30 former bile bears under our care.

Difficult times can only be weathered together

Your donation ensures that during these challenging times, all our animals will have the care and supplies they need; guaranteeing the stable income which would have come from visits and tours.

Will you help keep our animals in sanctuaries safe and happy?
