Exotic Pet Relocations: Saving the Bolivian Circus Lions

While most of the time, the “pet” in “PetRelocation.com” is a dog or a cat we’re moving, every so often we get to handle some pretty exotic pet relocations.  Once we moved fifty poisonous dart frogs from Switzerland to Texas and another time we handled the pet travel arrangements for one very spoiled Siamese fighting fish!  We’re currently working on helping with a pet relocation of two wolf-hybrids from Oregon to the St. Francis Wolf Sanctuary in Montgomery, Texas.
Recently, our “parent” company (in the literal sense - the company is owned by our CEO, Kevin O’Brien’s parents!) O’Brien Animal Transportation, helped with a very special relocation of Bolivian circus lions from inhumane conditions to a sanctuary in California.  This video is just stunning and goes to show that some stories do in fact have happy endings!

So touching. Thank you Mr.Bob Barker for your special help in saving these beautiful animals and to all who had a helping hand. Kinda gets to you when they actually play and run and when the lion at the end softly speaks,no doubt in my mind is saying thank you very much. :)

I never wanted that video to end! I live in Ecuador and have seen travelling circus lions living in equally terrible conditions. It breaks my heart. Any chance of coming here to help too?
