PrideRock Wildlife Refuge turns 30

Big cats don’t necessarily make good pets. PrideRock Wildlife Refuge rescues animals from circuses and private owners who can not properly care for large animals. PrideRock and many local organizations will benefit from North Texas Giving Day on Sept. 22.

In 30 years, PrideRock Wildlife Refuge, a permanent sanctuary for mistreated and unwanted animals, has rescued more than 70 animals from California to West Virginia. To celebrate this milestone, the wildlife refuge is working to raise $30,000 for facility improvements during North Texas Giving Day.

"We pride ourselves on having an animal sanctuary that ís not only peaceful for our animals, but is up-to-date in terms of structure, safety and cleanliness," said Gary Holliman, president of PrideRock Wildlife. "It takes a lot of financial resources to not only maintain our high standards, but to be able to expand in the hopes of taking in abused wildlife needing a home. We rely on donor support during North Texas Giving Day to make that happen."
