The summer heat is coming and our tigers (Ginseng, Kashmiri, Mira, Bhutan, Mungar, Riley, Tyson, Kimbo, Karma, Kuba, Tessa and Jodi) and hybrid wolves (Lair, Colt and Wednesday) need new pools to keep cool.
The mission of the Wildlife Waystation is to rescue and provide sanctuary for native and exotic wildlife both nationally and internationally.
Since 1976, WW has helped more than 76,000 abused, abandoned, orphaned, and injured animals. These include Siberian and Bengal tigers, lions, leopards, ligers, jaguars, mountain lions, wolves, coyotes, camels, primates, hyenas, bears, foxes, reptiles, exotic birds, birds of prey, and more.
WW provides 24-hour care to more than 400 permanent animal residents. The Health Center and full-time veterinary staff ensures that the care each animal receives is based on the individual animal’s requirements. Preventative care, treatment for infections, diseases, including cancer, and geriatric care are all part of providing exceptional care for the animals.
WW receives no funding from federal, state, or local governments, but is supported solely by private donations, foundation and corporate grants, bequests and animal sponsorships. The sanctuary is staffed 24 hours-a-day, 7 days a week by a professional staff and highly trained and dedicated volunteers.
WW works closely with local animal control, as well as California Department of Fish and Wildlife, U.S. Department of Agriculture, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and when warranted, animal organizations worldwide.
