Your gift saves lions, tigers and other rescued wild cats. 


Before RescueRescued: TWS rescues 5 cats from deplorable conditions.

The day of the confiscation is a day our staff will always remember. 

 The smell. The mess. The tiny cages filled with breeding animals, debris from feeding carcasses, feces. 

 A dogloo and hand-ripped tarp was the only shelter. There were no platforms, toys, or enrichment of any kind. 

We were there to rescue them. They are now safe at sanctuary.

Because of you, the future is bright for countless others - just like these rescued cubs – able to live wild at heart here at The Wildcat Sanctuary. They're safe, secure, loved, and well cared for, thanks to your support. 

Your gift enables us to do so much more in the future. You make it possible for us to rescue many from starvation, suffering, and deplorable conditions.  You will turn their lives around! 

For many, it will be the first time they’ll be able to choose a path to walk, a place to lie down, and the serenity to be as free as they can possibly be.  They'll enjoy life, without the fear of exhibition or exploitation, in natural, wide-open, spacious habitats – thanks to your caring and compassion.

We know that kindness to animals makes a better world for all of us.  The world will certainly be a kinder, gentler place because of you.  Thank you for helping make so much possible, for so many.

We do not buy, breed or exhibit animals. TWS is funded solely by private donations and receives no state or federal funding. TWS is accredited by the American Sanctuary Association and the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries. Combining natural and spacious habitats with a life free of exhibition or exploitation, the Sanctuary allows all residents to live wild at heart.
