Valley of the Kings - Animal Enclosure Fundraiser

Valley of the Kings was started 47 years ago by Jill Carnegie. It was her dream to provide a safe haven for feline exotics. That dream started with the enclosures pictured. They are severely outdated and in need of replacement. VOTK needs your help and donations in replacing these Big Cat enclosures and making them a roomier and more comfortable home for the current resident lionesses: Kali, Thena, Sheba and Shanie.
The updated electrical to 200 amp was desperately needed and the cost was $5600.  We are hoping to add solar power to the upper compound area. These projects are our priority, generally a new enclosure is approximately $15,000 each, we need a minimum of 4 new enclosures. Please share our story, spread the word, help Valley of the Kings continue their mission of providing a loving and protected sanctuary for all the animals that call VOTK home.

   *****Your donation is TAX DEDUCTIBLE*****
