Valley of the Kings operates on donations alone. They only open for tours for members only and limiting visitation to Sat. & Sundays. It's not a zoo and they aren't "showy" with the animals, some of them came from circuses. When they could no longer perform, the circus was going to put the lions and tigers down. V.O.T.K. does everything in their power to not let that happen. It provides a safe shelter for those abused, neglected or aging exotic animals until their quality of life is no longer good.
They have dozens of lions and tigers - including the tiger that was the mascot on mobile cards - you might remember the saying "Put a tiger in your tank..." yup, he's 23 now and living a very comfortable life in his indoor/outdoor pen.
VOTK possible. From high school students to adults and even aging adults everybody commits so much time and love to helping these animals have a wonderful "new beginning."
With as much time as everyone puts in, that doesn't leave time to do "marketing" or "advertising" so I wanted to do my part - small or large as it reaches - to introduce you to this amazing organization and encourage you to visit their website and offer a donation if you can. http://www.votk.org
