Wildlife In Need is one of the most amazing places I think I’ve ever been to. I’ve visited with my family several times and you can tell how loved these animals are just by the way they interact with the people that work there. PETA has been doing everything they can to drag them through the mud with negative reviews and by making up blatant lies twisting facts to make Tim & the other workers seem like they abuse & mistreat these babies. They are VERY well cared for and are SO LOVED by these workers. If they were mistreated or scared they would not run to Tim as excited as can be as soon as he walks in their pens, they would try to hide if they were scared. Don’t listen to PETA and their people, they will outright lie to your face just to steal your family pet and kill them. PETA and their people do not care about animal welfare, they just want to control the people that love their animals.

This place is a nightmare. They have now lost their license due to animal cruelty. Do a news search of the facility for more information.

Anyone who has been to this facility and has seen the interaction between Tim and his animals knows that they are well taken care of and loved. I have been going here since 2013 and just recently decided to volunteer my time. I have seen first hand how the volunteers and staff love these animals. The negative reviews and stories are just that-stories. They are posted by people who have not witnessed first hand what good these people do in the lives of the animals. Love WINs

This is one of so many non-profits operating under the guise of "sanctuary" while really just exploiting animals. Year after year the facility breeds baby tigers to be used in "pay to play" schemes to make money. This facility breeds animals, sells animals, and exploits animals, and has been in violation of animal welfare laws repeatedly. USDA, in February 2015, sought to have the federal license revoked due to all the animal welfare violations.
