All three animals were rescued from a basement. This was in Atlanta, Georgia. This happened way back in 2001. Furthermore, these precious animals were under a drug dealer’s cruelty. Thus, their treatment was inhumanely poor. The poor animals were in desperate need of help. Dog Dispatch confirms these facts.

No doubt, these events were heart-breaking indeed. Fortunately, Noah’s Ark Animal Sanctuary rescued the animals from the drug dealer’s clutches. Noah’s Ark Animal Sanctuary is a charity that helps abused animals. Therefore, they provide all the love and support in the world to these precious animals.

The Sanctuary covers a massive 250 acres of land. Currently, they have over 1,500 animals spanning over 100 different species. US $33,000 is all it takes to feed them for an entire month! No price is too high to rescue animals.

The trio arrived at the sanctuary as cubs. Clearly, they had been through a lot by the time they arrived. Thus, they would never be returned to the wild. Likewise, the cubs received proper medical attention. They were also well fed at the zoo. The staff provided them lots of care in order to restore their health.

Together, the trio shared all sorts of wonderful experiences. They played together while settling inside their new home. Unfortunately, Leo passed away in 2016. Shere Khan followed Leo 2018. This had left poor Baloo all alone.

Baloo received special attention from the staff. This was important so he would not feel lonely. This would to help him recover from the loss of his two best companions. This is definitely a touching tale of animal friendship. Our thoughts and prayers are with beloved Baloo in these troubling times.
