A contest to help name a mountain lion at the north Scottsdale non-profit Southwest Wildlife Conservation Center has been extended through Feb. 20.
The public can vote for the name of one of the four mountain lions that arrived at the facility last year. For $5, contest participants can choose between the following: Keva, Echo, Zion, Tonto, and Zuma and cast their vote.
All proceeds go toward helping to pay for the animal’s continuous care at SWCC and helps other animals at the refuge, according to a press release. Donors can vote as many times, and for as many names as they wish.
SWCC will be this lion’s forever home, the release said, encouraging people to “help him find his forever name by donating funds to ensure his life at Southwest Wildlife Conservation Center is as precious as he is.”
“We know from experience that the community enjoys getting involved with the naming of our sanctuary animals,” said Jim Mitchell, Southwest Wildlife Conservation Center marketing coordinator, in a prepared statement. “This mountain lion was one of four rescued last fall, and he’s the last one to get a name.
Read the mountain lion’s biography and look at his pictures on the site to help with the important naming decision, added the release.
