When Lambert the lion’s rescuer Vicky Keahey first saw him in June 2014, he looked more like a puppy dog than a mighty lion.

He had been Illegally purchased by a family in Texas who didn’t want him anymore, he desperately needed help.

So Keahey was more than happy to take him to her rescue center “In-Sync Exotics.

“We had heard from the previous owners that he slept in the bed with the grandfather,” said Keahey.

“So I got him a blanket, went into the enclosure and put the blanket in one of the corners. He curled up on that blanket and he went right to sleep. Ever since then, I always give him a blanket.”

Lambert is now 2 years old and still lives under the care of Keahey because he couldn’t survive in the wild.

“He has 7,000 sq. ft. worth of space to run around in, which includes a covered den area for shade and protection from the weather and a sunny, grassy playground with the pool he loves to play in.”

“He is just like any other 2 year-old lion in that he is active and playful, and is full of cattitude. You know where you stand with him.”
