My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Wild Felid Advocacy Center of Washington, Tmuwater, WA, USA
I have been an animal lover my whole life. I have always had many different kinds of animals & have done volunteer work with extoic cats (big & small), the Boise Zoo, AIDA a wildlife rehab & the pandas at Wolong China. Two of my "kids" were african servals, Gizmo & Kira, who had been with me since they were about 8 weeks old. I loved them dearly, they lived in my home and had their own room. I gradually became allergic to them to the point I was unable to even be in the same room. I was devastated and needed to find someone who would give them a good forever home. I was very fortunate to have someone refer me to the WAFC. After speaking with Shelleen and seeing the pictures she sent me I knew I had found the right home for my babies. I drove them there and they did very well on the 10 hour trip. When we arrived Shelleen & I put them into their new home. It was a large enclosure under some trees with lots of shelter along with places where they would feel comfortable and secure. I was very relieved and thankful to have found such a wonderful home for them. Shelleen is very experienced and takes very good care of all the animals she has taken in. It certainly is a labor of love on her part. It is very hard work to care for these poor animals who had no where else to go and it is also very expensive to care for them properly. In addition she does wonderful work educating the public and helping in any way she can. From my work as a volunteer I know how hard it is to run a rescue and how despertaly rescues are needed by animals who through no fault of there own have no where else to go. WFAC has helped countless people and animals who had no where else to turn. It is one of the best places I've seen and would not hesitate to recommend them.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
WFAC helped me and my babies when I needed to find them a forever home. I have seen the good WFAC does both with the animals in their care and in working with the public in many positive ways.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Shelleen has done such an excellent job there is nothing I could do to improve on her efforts. The only thing I can do is to help them raise much needed funding so WFAC can continue it's much needed services.
