IFAW Ambassador Visits Safe Haven
Actress and IFAW ambassador Minka Kelly recently visited Safe Haven Wildlife Sanctuary to explore what it means to be a true sanctuary. While many pseudo-sanctuaries profit from exploiting animals for selfies or breeding them to live in captivity, true sanctuaries prioritize the health and safety of animals and people.
I met Carli and Lily—two adult tigers—at Safe Haven Wildlife Sanctuary and watched them frolic in their pool, play with pumpkins (big cats love them!), enjoy an afternoon snack, and relax in the shade in their sprawling enclosure. As I watched these playful girls splash around in the pool, carefree and happy, it was hard to believe that they had such a devastating history.
