PrideRock - Residents

“In rescuing animals, I lost my mind, but found my soul.”

Nia, Niki, and Nallah

Lovingly known as the “N Sisters”, these three girls came to us several years ago from a breeder who used them in shows as cubs. Nia is white with blue eyes and all three are very sweet and love attention.



Simbad - PrideRock

Sinbad took the space of a beloved tiger that we lost many years ago and helped mend our broken hearts. It was a rainy night, but our world became much brighter with his arrival and he has now been with us for many years and continues to enrich our lives.



Golden - PrideRock

Golden was one of three sisters that came from California and had been used in the entertainment industry. Sadly, her two sisters, Kelly and Mia both passed away from cancer within a short time of each other, and we pray that we have Golden for a long time.


Jamu and Kashmir

Kashmir - PrideRock

Jamu and Kashmir and two precious, loving brothers who came to us as young cubs covered in ringworm. We worked day in and day out to rid them of it and their striped skin was finally covered in fur again. They have become beautiful, huge tigers that will lick your hands raw and chuff in your ear over and over.



Elijah - PrideRock

Elijah is one of our sweetest and biggest tiger. He was still on the bottle when we got him and we kept him on it until he started wanting to play with the bottle more than drink the milk. He was huge as a baby and we knew he would one day be the biggest boy we have and he has proved us right. He is a handsome boy to say the least with a wonderful temperament.


Bagherra and Kumal

Kumal - PrideRock

These two boys came from a friend who uses cats in the entertainment business and offered them to us when we had some extra room after losing two of ours to cancer. They quickly won a place in our hearts and at PrideRock. Kumal is 5 and white with beautiful blue eyes and Bagherra is 11 and is full of personality. So happy to have these two!


Mia and Keisha

Mia & Keisha - PrideRock

Mia is approximately 25 years old and has quite a story! We rescued her from a guy whom she attacked through his own negligence and human error, and unbeknownst to us she was pregnant at the time. We were blessed with three cubs, and every day with her is a blessing since she has probably already outlived herself.

We got Keisha as a cub and she has always been our little “tank”, strong and stout! She would rather roar than anything and will always let you know who is boss. She is now up in years, but going strong.



Pharaoh - PrideRock

Pharaoh is a sweet lion that came as a cub from a breeder that had used him in shows. We kept him on the bottle for a long time and interacted heavily with him, thus his strong bond to humans and sweet personality. He is still a very handsome boy.



Shana - PrideRock

Shana came about 7 years ago from the East coast with her companion, Tigger, who very sadly, we lost from a crippling disease. I’m sure she misses him as much as we do. She has gotten some new neighbors, which hopefully keep her occupied. She is a beautiful girl.


Katie, Willow and Sasha

These three girls are now about 3 years old. They are absolutely adorable and full of energy and spunk. They have brought us endless joy with their chuffs and need for attention and seem to love everyone that comes near them. We are so blessed to have them in our lives.



Allie - PrideRock

Allie was born at PrideRock to Mia in 1998 along with Jake and Ruby, who sadly have passed on. It was a wonderful experience to bottle feed them and raise them in the house with us. We were the first things they saw when they opened their eyes so we were mom and dad. That time was one of the most rewarding of my life and something I’ll always remember. Allie has blessed our lives for many years and has grown into a big beautiful lioness with a wonderful disposition who love humans.



Rambo - PrideRock

This big, beautiful boy has been with us many years and had quite a story. Some friends had to move him along with all their other exotic cats quickly because of a motorcycle gang that was threatening their safety. Prior to living with them, he had spent the first years of his life in a dark basement not ever know what daylight was. Needless to say, we were happy to take him and give him the best possible life with lots of room and plenty of sunshine. He has brought us tons of joy through the years.


Tiggy and Tony

Tiggy and Tony are residents brought from West Virginia 3 years ago from another facility that was going to be closing. It took a little time for them to adapt, especially to the summer heat, but they have now settled in.


Leo and Cleo

Leo and Cleo, a pair of lions, were also brought from the same facility in West Virginia as Tony and Tiggy. They are a very close pair and spend most of their time snuggled up to each other. We have gotten so many good pictures of them as they are very photogenic. They are so sweet and love attention from each other and humans alike.



Cherokee - PrideRockCherokee - PrideRock

Cherokee is an elderly cougar that we have had for many years. She was rescued from a man that had gotten ill and could no longer keep her and was her primary caregiver. Apparently, she never was around women much because she has never warmed up to women, but loves men. She has slowed down a lot and has arthritis in her joints. Every day is a blessing with her.



Casey - PrideRockCasey - PrideRock resident

In 1999 Carey was born here with his 3 sisters who have sadly passed on. Casey is a laid back, sweet boy with beautiful eyes. He loves attention and will come to the fence to greet you.



Zoe - PrideRock

Zoe is a favorite cougar at PrideRock. She has a wonderful personality and loves attention. She has been here for several years now, but is still one of the younger residents. She is a beautiful cat and a lot of people think the cougars are the prettiest of all the cats.


The 3 Bears: Rowdy, Coco and Toro
