Thanks to the generosity of our supporters Leeloo has arrived at his place in the sun! On the 26th October 2016 he finally left Okinawa and arrived in good health at Fellow Earthlings in California, where he will live out his days, digging in the dirt besides his new meerkat family. This amazing centre is always in need of donations, so please feel free to donate here or head over to their website and make your donation.
A very sad & lonely meerkat who has been for sale & housed in a small glass tank in a pet store in Okinawa since 2014 needs our help to reach his place in the sun. Through the efforts of various concerned individuals in Okinawa, Leeloo's solitary confinement and plight has been brought to light and a wonderful home has been found for Leeloo at Fellow Earthlings Meerkat Sanctuary in California.
Our heartfelt thanks and eternal gratitude to Pam, Christopher and her amazing team for agreeing to help us, and for the ongoing support and motivation.
In order to give Leeloo the life he deserves we need to raise the funds to cover various costs including his release. Once he arrives in California the cost of his ongoing care & rehabilitation will be covered by the Wildlife sanctuary. LUFTHANSA has generously offered to fly Leeloo to California at no charge.
It should be stated that we do not believe in nor have any desire to support the sale of Exotic Pets, however at the risk of Leeloo spending the rest of his days in these awful conditions our only option is to purchase him! After explaining what our mission is, the petstore has agreed to reduce the price of Leeloo by almost 50% and agreed that they will not bring in anymore Meerkats for sale.
Any excess funds raised will be donated to Fellow Earthlings to assist with the ongoing care of Leeloo. Thank you for caring...
