Busch Gardensâ€™Â has long supported local animal shelters by providing homes, and a second chance at life, for abandoned and neglected animals. Considered by many to be â€śuntrainable,â€ť these adopted animals now steal the stageÂ – and fansâ€™ heartsÂ – as stars in the parksâ€™ popular show â€śCritter Castaways.â€ť These furry ambassadors bring smiles to thousands of guests every day while promoting the importance of shelter adoptions.
Busch Gardens’ most famous adoptee, Mtani, a Labrador-retriever mix, joined the Busch Gardens family in 2011 to become life-long friends to Kasi the cheetah after the baby cheetah was orphaned. Since coming to the park, the cheetah and dog have lived together at Cheetah Run.
