Wild Oasis is a 501(c)(3) non-profit animal welfare organization that provides life-long sanctuary and care to small wild (non-domestic) cats that have special medical needs.
We strive to raise awareness about the plight of wild cat species whose populations are declining globally and to promote conservation efforts of these species in the wild.
There are thirty-six species of wild cats scattered all over the world, including the well known big cats. However, the less familiar small wild cat species comprise the largest percentage of this group. Small cats are typically shy and illusive, and because of their small size, less conspicuous.
Unfortunately, small wild cats face the same threats as the larger wild cats, namely habitat loss, overfishing or over-hunting of their prey base by humans, exploitation for their fur and body parts, and indiscriminate killing due to conflict with humans and their domesticated animals and livestock.
