Help support the Wild Felid Advocacy Center of Washington, a forever home to over 50 displaced wild cats, representing 13 species.
There is no paid staff at the Wild Felid Advocacy Center of Washington (WFAC). The sanctuary, located on Harstine Island in Washington, is run by a volunteer, working Board of Directors, and staffed by a dedicated team of volunteers. At WFAC, it is all about the cats. Giving each individual the best opportunity to be healthy and content is the #1 priority.
With supply chains interrupted and the unpredictability of available meat products, our usual means of maintaining the cats' food supply at a low cost is less effective. Donations will help purchase meat, primarily from local farmers, to maintain their proper diet. Every species in the cat family (42) is an obligate carnivore, so meat alternatives are not an option.
Every day we strive to make life better for the cats. Only now, we are doing it with about 80% less caregivers and caretakers. With 50+ cats located on 5+ acres, there is a lot of ground to cover each day. Donations to help purchase large toting carts, longer hoses, and even a golf cart would really help lighten the physical demands.
WFAC is located in western Washington, where it rains much of the time, except for in the summer. Naturally, we humans prefer to remain indoors when conditions outdoors are unpleasant, so the majority of funding is procured through donating summertime visitors. This year, that funding is already drastically down. That is why, for the first time, we are asking directly for donation online. Although we cannot give you a guided visit, you will still get a warm and fuzzy feeling in your heart for helping.
Your gift will help provide immediate financial support for the continuation of proper and above average wild cat care at the Wild Felid Advocacy Center of Washington.
