Animal Ark: Casino Cast-Offs

The Animal Ark is a refuge for wild animals that have been abandoned by idiot owners, or left out in the cold by old has-been casino shows. It is a real place with real folks, caring for these unwanted animals. The animals receive great care, and can live out their lives in a decent environment. The animals range from bears to foxes to raccoons to white tigers, and many other cats, lynx, bobcat, etc.
