Donate & Support the Valley of the Kings

There are an enormous number of things that must be done to keep The Valley of the Kings sanctuary going. We need funds for building materials, donated items from our Wish List, and help with many projects we just cannot do ourselves, including expanding animal enclosures, rewiring all the electricity, re-roofing the barns, and completely fencing in the property.

Of course, there is a day-to-day need for donations for food. All our animals eat 365 days a year. We need everyone’s help, no matter how small. Please consider joining our extended family by becoming a member of the Valley of the Kings or sponsoring a lion, tiger, bear, or other rescued animals!

The easiest way to support us is to simply make a donation on Paypal, make Valley of the Kings your charity of choice through AmazonSmile, donate profits from items you sell on eBay, help the environment (plus the animals) by recycling regularly, or order Boomer Balls for the big cats to play with. You can find all these links these on our What’s New page.
