Review for WildCat Haven, Inc., Sherwood, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I'm sick to my stomach reading some of the slander that's being said here. I know how much Mike and Cheryl have sacrificed since making the common error of purchasing one of these animals from a breeder way back when. I've witnessed their dedication first-hand and have personally contributed my sweat and hours to helping construct a new enclosure for some of their residents. Don't try and tell me lies because I'm there; I see what goes on and I see how much effort, time and energy goes into providing the best possible situation for these cats. Nothing is built until the funds for the project are available. Mike alone puts in a full 40+ hours of employment at a "day" job, then spends all his waking hours working on the sanctuary. The guy barely ever sleeps. We're out working 8 hours in the pouring rain if that's what needs to be done because the cats can't go without any of their necessities. The allegations of donations going to line their pockets is not only absurd, it's factually inaccurate and borders on a legal repercussion to the person making such statements. The facility is closed to the public because that's what is best for the cats. They could pimp them out to rake in the dough but that's NOT WHY THEY DO WHAT THEY DO. Whoever is behind these attacks on these people who have given their very existence up to care for these animals is both misinformed and frankly, pathetic.

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

seeing abused and neglected animals come in with broken spirits and recovering to enjoy their daily lives.

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

find a way to do more to help. I donate both my time and my money and see the constant struggle of caring for these incredible cats.

Role:  Volunteer & I've worked on the newest cougar pen as well as general maintenance around the grounds. Hauling trash, bagging straw, prepping food; whatever needs to be done. .
