We all learn from our mistakes and Wildcat Haven has been nothing but honest. It is why I give to them again and again vs. many other organizations that hide behind their past. I know where my dollars are going and am so impressed with what they do on a small budget.

I also refer others
to the organization as well as animals in need of a safe haven.

The Great!

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

seeing how they always help animals in need as well as sharing their experience with other rescue groups in the area

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.

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..

The Great!

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.

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

being able to see the majestic cats up close.

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

selfless and dedicated.

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.

WCH came into my life over a year ago when attending a fundraiser for the local feline society. Cats have always been special to me and to find a haven for the Big Cats was a wonderful surprise. I have since become more involved with WCH thru donations and will be a volunteer to assist in any way possible to benefit the sanctuary. That there exists a home for cats treated with such cruelty and pain by the people that "owned" them is a huge thing to find. The privacy for the cats is so important and I applaud them for not being tempted to "show" them for the purpose of raising funds. The cats are glowing with love and care yet respected for the wild animals they truly are. With wholehearted support of WCH I hope you will view the website and see the wonderful work they have accomplished with only donated funds. They are the only hope for many wild cats and hybrids currently being abused. Please find it in your heart to care.

The Great!

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

being allowed to take a tour of the compound and meet the staff. The level of caring noticed in each staff member was inspirational. It has helped me decide to volunteer my services in any way possible to assist the program.

More feedback...

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

The care and attention given to the needs of the cats. That they have made accomodiations for the new Hybrid population is extraordinary. The animals are clearly well cared for and enjoy the compounds designed just for them.

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

So well informaed about each of the seperate breeds. They knew all the names and quirks of each cat. Some of the cats were obviously close to the staff as they came to greet them with no fear or concern.

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

Finish the in-place medical facility to avoid the need to transport the cats to outside vets for care. They could expand the enclosures to accomodate more of the animals that need care.
