Welcome to our new Lions Roar Blog –

The reason we began this blog is to let our friends and donors remain informed about the lives of the animals that have been rehomed by the Lions Roar.  You can read about us on our website http://www.thelionsroar.eu    We plan to update whenever we have news.  Please subscribe so you can read our pages.

The Lions Roar is a small international charity that is dedicated to improve the lives of animals worldwide in captivity.  Our main endeavor since 2002 has first to improve a zoo, and then when the zoo closed because it was not up to the EU standards in Romania, we set out to rehome and save the animals that would have been left to starve.   Our LionsRoarBlog is a blog of hope and transformation. You will read about our two disabled lions who are living a much improved  life in the Pantera Zoo in Holland;  about the mother and son lions that thrive  in South Africa; a partially blind lioness named Bella, our beloved heroine, who is flourishing in Malawi; the five bears rehomed in a wildlife park in Brasov Romania, including a blind Tibetan female in her special enclosure;  about dogs, cats, doves, goats and horses that were rescued; and our two baboons whose once miserable lives have been turned around in a better zoo in Romania where they live side by side with other baboons and released of the agonizing humiliation of daily mistreatment, filthy surroundings and loneliness.

Some of the  that we plan to tell are about the owls and turtle, the roosters and goats that all lived in Buhusi Zoo and the people who visited them. Part of our story is about the amazing resilience and heart of animals. Part of the story is about the aftermath of Communism and Holocaust and how it effected a once wealthy community that had a zoo once adored. And Part of the story is about the difference that we can make as caring human beings because or your support and compassion. We have great partners and friends worldwide. Our circle of astonishing people expands all the time.


We dedicate this blog to all the children in Buhusi who used to come to the zoo to help us feed and care for the animals and who we hope are sleeping through the night knowing that the animals have new  homes.

some of the children in buhusi had lives that were not much better thanthe animals they tried to help.  Their generosity and joy was inspiring.


And of course, there are many animals over the years who never made it and those are tragic tales but worth the telling as well.


We hope you will love seeing our creatures and reading about their new lives.
Laura, Jane, Sue and Alina
