Wild in the Country: 15th Annual Gala & Fundraiser

 Lions Tigers & Bears, Southern California’s only true and accredited exotic animal sanctuary, has announced its 15th annual fundraising gala, Wild in the Country, to take place on May 18, 2024, in San Diego’s picturesque countryside.

Wildlife trafficking is the third largest illicit business in the world, only behind the drugs and weapons trades. Shocking facts like these underscores the urgent need for initiatives like Wild in the Country.

“We are calling all compassionate individuals to join us in supporting this vital cause,” says Bobbi Brink, Founder and CEO of Lions Tigers & Bears. “Together, we can put an end to the suffering of these magnificent animals.”

Attendees will enjoy an afternoon of fun and excitement, featuring a live auction hosted by celebrity auctioneer Sean Kelly of the hit TV show Storage Hunters. Guests will also have the opportunity to participate in a silent auction, indulge in fine cuisine, savor craft beverages, enjoy live entertainment and much more.

“Your presence at Wild in the Country will truly make a difference for animals in need.” adds Brink. “Be a champion for animals in need by reserving your spot today.”
