Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge is a true sanctuary committed to rescuing abused, abandoned and un-wanted Exotic Cats fallen victim of the exotic animal trade. We are accredited by the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries (GFAS), a USDA licensed facility, and have all of the proper state permits in Arkansas. For 27 years, TCWR's mission has been to provide a lifetime sanctuary for the survivors of the exotic pet trade. With the care, safety, and welfare of animals being the number one priority at the Refuge, it is important that each animal is treated with the dignity and compassion they desperately need and deserve. Because of this mission, TCWR has developed a reputation for compassionate care across the country.
