Death Rumors at A Lion's Heart

                  An Address of Confusion and Concerns Regarding A Lion’s Heart

Southside, AL, September 20, 2016– It is an odd day indeed to find out that you are dead, incompetent, and poor.  An address to a lot of misinformation being intentionally spread to mislead and confuse our supporters.

I actually never thought that I would have the chance to use the Mark Twain quote, “the reports of my death are greatly exaggerated’ but somehow it has become both appropriate and necessary. Amy Adams, President of A Lion’s Heart

A Lion’s Heart strongly refutes the allegations made by Kim Michelle Broderick which are of a highly personal and detrimental nature.  They allege that I, Amy Adams, is incompetent to run a Lion’s Heart Org due to health issues.  This is totally incorrect and inaccurate and amounts to a case of liable defamation of character.  This has been posted on numerous occasions on Facebook, in letters sent to other NGOs, to Sanctuaries, our followers, and to other bodies who have an interest in A Lion’s Heart.

I would also point out that KMB was dismissed as a Director of A Lion’s Heart, on August 28th, due to malicious intent to the organisation of A Lion’s Heart.  This decision was not taken lightly but was caused by the unacceptable and damaging behaviour of KMB which was affecting the above Organisation.

It has come to our knowledge, that the above-mentioned KMB, is still using the title of a Director of A Lion’s Heart which is illegal and is also pertaining to be a part of a Lion’s Heart by using videos, documents, and photos which are the legal property of A Lion’s Heart.  Again, a totally illegal practice.

Please note that KMB may be collecting funds for the animals in Taiz Zoo but this however, forms no legal basis and has no connection whatsoever in any capacity with A Lions Heart. Any such connection either stated or inferred is incorrect and forms no legal basis whatsoever. Any continuing defamation of a personal nature against myself or A Lion’s Heart....., any usage of property of a Lions Heart shall be looked upon as constituting a felony and will be treated as such.

On a more personal and professional note, having to even address that I am not dead is a bit concerning.  Especially at a time so critical for the Taiz zoo animals.  Please note that we are still actively taking donations for their care.  We actually still have the same website and the same donation page at and .  You can also donate to SOS Zoo and Bear Rescue at .  Who have also been caring for the zoo and since February.

Press Release- A Lion's Heart to Help Starving Abandoned Zoo Animals


In Taiz, Yemen

Taiz, Yemen, June 10, 2016– United States based nonprofit, A Lion’s Heart, to mobilize to help save the starving zoo animals located in Taiz Zoological Gardens in Taiz, Yemen.

An ongoing civil war in Yemen has left a zoo of 282 animals at its mercy. Bankruptcy and a vicious battle has left these animals in a life boat situation with no end in sight. A Lion’s Heart believes that we have a moral obligation to these animals. The only true innocents in this horrible situation. We must not fail them. Amy E. Adams-A Lion’s Heart

With war raving Yemen as a whole, the war has left a bloody trail of innocent victims.  Of those victims, are innocent zoo animals locked away in obsolete concrete prisons.  Two pictures previously circulated of a severely emaciated male lion in Taiz shocked the world.  The pictures were both horrifying and heartbreaking with affected animal lovers declaring that something had to be done.  Due to that photographic proof, a previously, short term solution was found and implemented in February by a group of volunteers. Unfortunately, there were problems associated with a strictly volunteer unregistered charity.  A Lion’s Heart has determined that it had to step up for these precious animals to provide a legal avenue to address the grave problems that still plague Taiz’s animals.  A comprehensive plan has been drafted and will be implemented by A Lion’s Heart to ensure the needed support for the survival and optimum care for all the 282 animals located in Taiz zoo.  We cannot allow these animals to have to step backwards and yet again face starvation.  A Lion's Heart will, also, be providing a new facility to be built on the existing grounds to improve the animals' lives by providing them with a state of the art zoo that is eco-friendly and is modeled after a sanctuary's environment. This will help all the zoo's animals with both physical and mental health by ensuring an enclosure is suitable to their individual species' needs and allowing them to express more of their natural behaviors.  


A Lion’s Heart is a registered 501(c)(3) charity located in the United States in Southside, Alabama with global contacts. Whose main mission and goal is to help and alleviate the suffering of zoo animals throughout the world.
