For someone who has "purchased" animals, and then goes on to say they are a "sanctuary" :S you should be ashamed of yourself. You seem to think you are some voice for the animals, here through out the community. I simply cant help but laugh at you. You are getting your money just l ike anyone else. I have done alot of research on you and your facility...shame on you!!!!

Close down the entire operation. She is nothing more than that of a breeder.

As a donor I have seen first hand this wonderful facility. There are so few true sanctuaries that put the needs of the animals first. The staff works tirelessly to give the animals everything they need, from good food, warm dens, and lots of enrichment. They all have huge areas to live in, more room than any other place I've seen. The cats look healthy, happy and content. The staff was more than happy to answer all my questions and knew each and every cat's personalities and shared stories about them. Kudos to WildCat Haven and their staff. It's great to see a place that does so much for the animals.

Love to see them be able to purchase more land. I know they are talking about creating a new site for future rescues.

So I thought this was supposed to be an SMALL cat sanctuary? when did cougars and tigers become part of the small cat family.
Doesn't it make sense that the small cats would be terrified?

Who´s interest is being served here?

Also, did this breeder not sell servals to a hybid
breeder in Nevada?
Why is she being a hypocrit and critizing cat breeding when she did it herself?
Frankly i must say, this seems like a way to support a personal addiction to cat ownership and present a holier than thou attitude. It is ok for her but no one else! Who died and made her God?

My husband and I sponsored a wildcat and had a private tour of WildCat Haven. It was a wonderful place, quiet, secluded, lots of trees and the most noise we heard were the birds chirping. The cats were in huge pens with trees and things to jump on and get under. They all seemed very relaxed, we didn't see any of them pacing. The people there spent over two hours with us, answering questions and telling how the sanctuary started and how they got to where they are today. We will continue to support this place and feel good about how our donations are helping.

WildCat Haven has grown from humble beginning to a wonderful place for the rescues that they have. All of the folks involved love what they do and put their heart & soul into the mission. Wish sanctuaries weren't necessary but until breeding and selling wildcats is stopped true sanctuaries are needed for abused wildcats.

WildCat Haven has grown over the years to be a premier wildcat sanctuary. As with most sanctuaries they started out the wrong way, purchasing a wildcat as a pet. Things change and growth comes out of knowledge. They have always been honest about their beginnings, using it as an example of how foolish it is to want to make a wildcat a pet. Now, as an accredited sanctuary they are making a difference in the lives of wildcats who need a safe, lifetime home. Over the years they have (obviously) made some people unhappy by no longer supporting private ownership, but I for one am glad that they learned and now do all they can to support legislation to stop the breeding and selling of exotic cats. They don't have to defend their past record, what they do as a sanctuary is important and much needed.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

that they continue to create a wonderful safe, peaceful life for the wildcats that come to them. They do not breed, sell, buy or exhibit the rescues and work with other accredited sanctuaries across the US.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

say that they need more help with fundraising. With limited resources, they do amazing things, creating large natural habitats, feeding wholesome food and the best vet care but more funding would enable them to do even more.

I personally knew Cheryl Tuller before she started her non profit organization. To quote her directly she told me "she had to do this to support her habit". If one looks into USDA records you will clearly see she was a Breeder for a number of years prior to changing to exhibitor(at my suggestion). In fact she was a breeder while a non profit in the early years.In my opinion, due to lack of support and obvious contradiction she switched categories. At one point she even offered to sell me an ocelot which was born on her premises. To my surprise she actually ended up turning on the owner of the ocelots, similar to how she turned on our friendship. I also believe she also bred and sold Serval kittens while a Non profit to a breeder in Nevada. I believe in doing good for the benefit of the animals no matter what. Cheryl has showed me that she is judge and jury, and holds the animals welfare second. I am disappointed and sadden by my loss of her friendship but glad to have found out, better late than never.

I was lucky enough to find out about WildCat Haven, Inc about 3 years ago. I received a donation solicitation in the mail. I support a variety of animal welfare organizations locally and internationally so I assumed they purchased my name/address from one of those lists. The organization got my attention because it was helping wildlife that had been completed abused by humans and because it was local. I had never heard of the organization and it was supposedly only 75 miles from my home. I called the Oregon Humane Society in Portland, Oregon and they had nothing but praise for the organization. I was also pleased to hear that they were not "open to the public", but was quite open to allowing other non-profits to see their good work. This means they care more about the animals welfare than the opportunity to benefit from them. There aren't many "real" facilities like this in the country. Some organizations "claim" to be operating for the welfare of the animals when in fact they are really personal zoos. Because the organization was local and I could keep tabs on their progress, they earned my long time support and donations. I would encourage others to be a part of their good work.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

that it is "local" and I can witness first hand how my donations are helping.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

extremely dedicated.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

expand into other areas of the country where the need is just as great.

Ways to make it better...

I could see more open areas for the cats. It's amazing to me what they have been able to accomplish with the minimal funds available to them. But with wildlife, more is better.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the space needed to expand for the demand of caring for these cats that humans have so blatantly abused.

One thing I'd also say is that...

don't hesitate to check out a non-profit that has interested you. There is so much need in the world and no one can help everyone. So focus your volunteerism and your donations into 1-4 organizations that you really care about. It will go much further.

WCH is an amazing place for wildcats that have been bought for personal enjoyment and can no longer be kept as pets. WCH takes in these amazing animals and gives them a home for life. WCH is not used as amsusment for tourists, these big cats are safe from people that dont understand what they have gone though. WCH loves and cares for all of these cats with every inch of their heart..

I was able to have a private tour of WCH and see how wonderful of a group they are.

I can't say enough praise for WildCat Haven in Sherwood, Oregon. I am so inspired by the incredible life these cats have in their sanctuary, that I am a dedicated, long-time supporter. I have been honored to be allowed to visit a few times and come away from the experience feeling so happy for those cats. Because they are not open to the public, it's hard for them to get donations because it's not well known. However, it is most worthy of support of any kind.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

expand the enclosures, save more cats, create an on-site hospital, hire a vet, not worry every week where they'd find money to feed the cats.
