“We know from experience that the community enjoys getting involved with the naming of our sanctuary animals.”, said Jim Mitchell, Marketing Coordinator at Southwest Wildlife Conservation Center. “This mountain lion was one of four rescued last fall, and he's the last one to get a name.

This contest not only allows community input but also raises funds for continuing care for him and all the other wildlife in our sanctuary.”
