THE STORY:

Patrick Webb wrote -

The Wild Animal Orphanage (WAO), has announced closure due to lack of funding and economic hardship. WAO is located in San Antonio, Texas and is now re-homing all of the exotic wild animals who reside there. There are a great many big cats and primates needing to be placed, and efforts by many are assisting in this effort. In the interim, all of these wild animals need to be fed and cared for until new homes in qualified facilities are secured.

National Wildlife Humane Society (NWHS) is providing assistance in this endeavor. NWHS recently secured almost 3 tons of poultry product (kudos to Tysons Foods) and 3,200 lbs of beef (thank you Tiger Creek Wildlife Refuge) for the big cats. 5,280 lbs of monkey chow has been secured (thanks Brenda, Shelly and friends!!) but there is an immediate need for fresh fruit and produce, and more meat and monkey chow will be needed, when the current inventory runs out (there are a LOT of primates and big cats to feed).

The need for food will reduce as animals leave for their new homes, so assistance is appreciated until all have been placed.

100% of all donations through this NWHS Project (less crowdrise fee) will go directly to purchase food and needed items from suppliers, to be delivered or picked up by WAO volunteers. The sanctuary wildlife placement is being closely monitored by the USDA and IFAW working with NWHS and other wildlife conservation organizations.

Please consider adding this Project, and more importantly, a donation. It is imperitive that these animals be well fed and in good health before being transported long distances.

This Project will be deleted when the last animal is re-homed.
