Busch Gardens’  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 “untrainable,” these adopted animals now steal the stage – and fans’ hearts – as stars in the parks’ popular show “Critter Castaways.” 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.
