At the wild cat farm, it is all about the animals. We believe in the rights and protection of the animals. The farm is home to a variety of wild animals such as lions, cheetahs, servals, caracals, black footed cats, even the mischievous meerkats and more. The farm acts as a home to wild cats that are not able to be released back into the wild, as well as a nursery for cubs that are brought to the farm by neighbouring breeders to be hand-raised before they are relocated into reserves. The farm aims to provide a safe haven to wild animals who are in need of a home and to ensure that injured and traumatized animals receive proper medical care.
Together with HART, a wildlife rehabilitation center and sanctuary, we have helped rehabilitate numerous animals such as owls, meerkats, vervet monkeys and bat eared foxes. The farm offers you an opportunity to work/interact with the animals and gain experience inactivities like cleaning, building enclosures, feeding, and playing with the animals, as well as the opportunity to unwind in a relaxing Free State setting. We strive to make life as normal as possible for animals by ensuring their happiness and wellbeing. You, as a volunteer, have the opportunity to assist in making this happen.
Every Monday we will choose a new project. The project needs to be completed before new projects are given. Projects will sometimes start with one group and be finish with next group.
