Sponsorships: Help Provide the Best Care for the small and/or big cats!

By sponsoring a small or big cat you are helping Wild Cats World to provide the very best care for all of the cats that call the sanctuary home. Sponsoring a cat by (symbolical) adoption or sponsoring a project (like the construction of camps: the bigger, the better!) is easy!!!!

The proceeds from the sponsorship program fund nutritionally balanced diets and vitamins, excellent daily care by experienced and loving caretakers, excellent veterinary care, flea/tics prevention, enrichment, support of the wild species.

For 25 euro (20 USD) a month or more you can be assured your favourite cat or species will get even better care than already is the case.

  • Choose your favourite cat or species: African wildcats, Black-footed cats, Caracals, Cheetahs, Leopards and Servals. You can also support our feral cat project or Lion project.
  • Make a monthly or yearly donation, or one-time donation sponsoring one project, like the construction of a huge camp.

Start of brand new Wild Cats World Leopard / wildcats Sanctuary, 7th November 2020

With the arrival of the first two leopards, the brand new Wild Cats World Leopard sanctuary has ‘officially’ started. Work in progress still but the arrival of these two leopards, and pretty soon another four, is a good start. All leopards will have their forever home at our sanctuary, with lots of space, the best of care, no commercial exhibitions or tours, no exploit nor trade.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions everything is going slower than we hoped for, but still great progress since the start in February 2020 with the purchase of a great piece of land to start the sanctuary.

Huge thanks to the hard work and dedication of the whole Wild Cats World team: caretakers, constructors & great team of workers, office people, attorney and owners/management. Thanks to this extended team the start of the brand new sanctuary and relocation of the first two leopards, is a FACT.

On a memorable day, 7th November 2020, on the 9th birthday of the ancestors (very first leopards we rescued) of our leopard project and wild cat sanctuary, Feline & Felix, who will eventually move down to Paradise as well!

Happy Birthday – start brand new WCW Leopard Sanctuary.

Happy 9th birthday to 2 of the most wonderful leopards in the world,
Feline & Felix, ancestors of the Wild Cats World Leopard project with
opening of the brandnew leopard sanctuary today, 7th of November 2020.
More details later about the first two leopards arriving at the brand new sanctuary.

In Memory of… Simonne van Driessche

(20 February 1954 – 17 September 2020)

With the passing of Simonne van Driessche, we lost our most loyal supporter and friend. The (symbolic) adoption parent of leopards Feline & Felix and caracal Leo……. An animal lover in heart and soul and a true follower of Wild Cats World. Always standing by with a word of support; showing incredible interest in all we do. For better and for worse.

We shall find peace.
We shall see angels,
We shall see the sky
sparkling with diamonds

R.i.p. Simonne – you will be missed and never forgotten. The word loyal is made for you, as loyal you were!!!! Thanks for everything!!!!!!

Photo: Simonne meeting caracal kitten Nina at “sanctuary” Stichting Leeuw, Anna Paulowna, Netherlands (May 2012). The poor kitten was brutally injured and left to die 4 months later at this so-called sanctuary. Simonne stayed loyal to the cause of Nina all the way; she stayed loyal to all our projects and wild cats.

All lives matter @ Wild Cats World

If you can find it in your heart to support the Wild Cats World sanctuary, you will not only contribute to the gorgeous cats on these pictures, just a few of the residents at the Wild Cats World sanctuary. You will also support employment opportunities.

By taking the best of care of the wild cats and other animals, we create jobs and support local economy.

As for the cats: they want to have the best of space, food, care, company… a life as wild as possible. We want to provide this – as a non-profit organisation our means are limited – but we still do what we can.

Do you want to support us?
Please write to info@wildcatsmagazine.nl to discuss ways to support us.

Wild Cats World is going strong

Even though it is a difficult and insecure time, we are happy to inform you that Wild Cats World as official sanctuary in South Africa is going strong. We are making huge steps and significant progress with a large new project, as always benefiting all cats in our care big time!
The WCW team is growing and more solid and reliable as ever before. The employees who are loyal to WCW will be secure of a great future in our organisation, which is growing slowly but surely.

Of course Covid-19 is hitting us hard too. We take our responsibility to the animals in our sanctuary as well as to the team of employers very serious. Their well-being is essential for us and we will provide the best in our power. Ever since we started our sanctuary in South Africa we of course support the South African economy and local businesses by spending lots of money. Sadly we have lost a lot of money due to corruption in SA too. We like to continue with our work for the endangered wild cats, big and small for a long time to come.

As non-profit organisation due to Covid-19 we have no income at all, other than the money earned in our jobs in the Netherlands. If you have a heart for the wild cats and our work, and you are looking for a charity cause to give a donation or sponsor a project or animal, please do contact us by e-mail, info@wildcatsmagazine.nl.

All sponsors will be able to follow us and the cats closely by becoming a member of our (closed) groups on Facebook, to which you will get an invitation. You will also be more than welcome to visit us in person to see for yourself that every single penny will be spend on the animals and the various ways to give them the best care possible.

We keep you up-dated. Thanks for following us!!!

It's always seems impossible... until it's done!
