|"If you talk with the animals they will talk with you and will know each other.
If you do not talk to them you will not know them. What you do not know you will fear.
What one fears one destroys."

Our Mission: Sanctuary - Education - Conservation
The Wild Felid Advocacy Center reconnects people with wildlife by introducing visitors to rare, threatened, and endangered
species—up close and personal. The Center’s animal residents serve as ambassadors for their wild counterparts: You are more
likely to become invested in these species after you meet them and learn about their inherent value. Looking a tiger in the eye,
hearing wild cats call to one another, and meeting each species for the first time will forever change your perspective. You
protect what you know.

Meet Our Animals
Our animals come to us from a variety of situations. Some of our much older animal residents came to us from dire
negligent circumstances, or as an alternative to euthanasia. However, many more of our residents were well cared
for at their previous homes, but simply needed a different living situation; some were retired to us from other
zoological programs; and most of our smaller wild cats were owned by individuals who entrusted us with their care
when their circumstances changed. We are proud to be a haven for animals from all origins.
