Learn More About Each Rescued Ocelot Here at the Sanctuary - Including Each Rescue Story.

The Wild Animal Sanctuary-Texas currently houses 2 Ocelots that were rescued from illegal or abusive situations. Following each rescue operation, our Ocelots are provided with individualized medical and rehabilitation care. Each Ocelot is giving as much time as needed to adjust to their new home prior to be released into large acreage habitats - providing them with a forever home.


Rio was brought to TWAS-Texas after she was retired from the Species Survival Plan (SSP) at the El Paso Zoo.


Pinga was brought to TWAS-Texas after she was retired from the Species Survival Plan (SSP) at the Oklahoma City Zoo.

Ocelots have a distinct chain rosette spotted coat, a long ringed tail, and slightly rounded ears. They are often associated with traits of solitude, gracefulness, and being strongly territorial.

One of the most wonderful ways to help our Animals is through our Adoption Program. It's also a great personalized gift for a family member or friend, showing you care in the most meaningful way...
