for Valley of the Kings Sanctuary and Retreat
 SHARON, WI
Valley of the Kings was started 44 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 They are severely outdated and in need of replacement.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.
We also need new roofs on several out buildings, the roofs are rotted and one has several huge holes big enough for a person to fit through, so far the chickens haven't figured it out-lol ( it is now tarped). The updated electrical to 200 amp was desperately needed and the cost was $5600. These projects are our priority, generally a new enclosure is approximately $15,000 each, we need a minimum of 4 new enclosures. A future goal is to use solar panels in our upper compound. 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*****

Help VOTK continue their mission of providing a living and protected sanctuary for all the animals that call VOTK home, as well as our drive and passion for educating the public about the plight of the big cat and other animals, both in captivity and the wild.

Thank you to one of our wonderful volunteers, Darylynn O' Donnell for capturing Thena leading the lions in the afternoon "roar" session. It is breathtaking.
Thena is one of our lady lions that will benefit by this fundraiser for a new enclosure. This active girl needs more space. Please help out by donating and or sharing.
