Big cats were never intended to be pets, as that term is commonly used, and often attempting that endeavor ends in tragedy
for either the owner, the cat, or both.
The PrideRock mission is to prevent cruelty to animals by keeping a solemn
promise we make to each animal that is accepted, that this will be their final and permanent home for the remainder of their
lives. A commitment that has long term economic and personal implications. Then as part of the mission, PrideRock Wildlife
Refuge creates species-appropriate enclosures with enrichment and recreational areas for its residents, with each animal
being given specific diets and nutritional provisions as well as veterinary care. This enables PrideRock to provide many
educational opportunities for the public, such as year-round internships for college students, a platform for the implementation
of projects by groups such as the Boy Scouts, Wildlife Society members, and volunteers in general who spread the word about
the plight of exotic animals in captivity.
