Situated on 93 acres outside of Alpine, California, on the edge of the Cleveland National Forest, Lions Tigers & Bears is an animal sanctuary for rescued big cats, bears and other exotic animals in beautiful San Diego County.

Nestled in a scenic landscape of majestic oak trees, meadows, and rolling hills, our sanctuary offers an idyllic, natural habitat for more than 60 animals who have been neglected and abused in captivity across the country. The ranch provides a peaceful refuge for the animals to live with dignity in a safe, nurturing environment, where they can run, play, swim and enjoy fresh air.

Your membership, sponsorship, and support mean the world to us and ensure the animals get a second chance at a better tomorrow.

Above: Maverick was born in 2013 and was confiscated by California Department of Fish & Wildlife from a celebrity who did not have the proper license to own an exotic animal! He came to us when he was 9 months old and was a ball of energy who quickly grew into the 419 lb tiger he is today!
