Organization Information

Mission Statement

Catty Shack Ranch Wildlife Sanctuary is a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization. "Our mission is to provide a safe, loving, forever home for endangered big cats, and to educate the public about their plight in the wild and captivity". Our primary focus is in the rescue of cats from serious situations. Once an animal is taken in at Catty Shack Ranch, they have a loving, forever home for life. We do not breed, sell, or trade any of our animals. Our current residents include tigers, lions, cougars, leopards, bobcats, arctic foxes, and coatimundis (the last two are "honorary cats").

Description

The Catty Shack Ranch is dedicated the rescue and care of big cats. We provide sanctuary to cats confiscated by the state for illegal ownership, improper enclosures or maltreatment. We also educate the public to discourage illegal, private ownership. Wild animals, especially big cats, do not make good "house" pets.
