Shizzy's Wildcat Rescue Spring Schedule
Updated: Mar 14
A local exotic animal rescue will be holding several events and volunteer days throughout the spring and summer. Shizzy’s Wildcat Rescue is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping animals held in captivity and in the wild. They are in the process of building a safe haven in the town of Fair Bluff for animals rescued from private ownership, breeders, circuses and other poor conditions.
Lions, tigers, snow leopards, cougars, ocelots, servals, bobcats, caracals, wolves, bears, and other apex predators will be able to live out the rest of their lives in a comfortable and safe natural habitat. Some conditions the animals have lived in are so severe that many of them have never even touched grass, or even walked around anywhere other than in a cage.
The organization has been working diligently over the last two years to finish constructing the facility to house these exotic animals, and they have room on the fence line for volunteers to join them in their plight.
Shizzy's will be holding these volunteer workdays on March 11 and 25, April 16, May 6 and 20, June 3 and 17, July 15 and 29, and Aug. 5 and 26, from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. The group will also be hosting a community meet and greet with animal advocate and award-winning filmmaker Tim Harrison on Saturday, April 15, from 10 a.m.- 3:00 p.m. at 658 Main Street in Fair Bluff. Members of the rescue will be attending the N.C. Strawberry Festival in Chadbourn on Saturday, May 6, to speak with the public and hand out information to those who are curious about what the rescue does.
