IEFS is a great charity. They take care of large animals, mostly cats,that have been abandoned, abused, etc. and need special care. On my first visit, I was extremely upset at one point by the stories of how the cats came to be at IEFS and how their background contributed to any specific health or emotional issues that they faced. Thank God, there are good people who want to take care of these special animals. It is great to see that the animals will regain their trust in humans due to the attention that they receive. I would recommend a visit to anyone who cares about cats. It is a moving and wonderful experience. My only regret is that I can't get into the enclosures and play with them myself!

This is a wonderful place. You can tell once you are there that the animals are happy, healthy and well-cared for. They enjoy their habitats (as much as can be expected) and interact with the caretakers in a meaningful manner.

We visited IEAS about 2 years ago, our first time to visit. We really enjoyed the tour. I was impressed with how well the animals are taken care of. This organization needs all of the support it can get, to help keep the great homes for the animals. thank you

This haven for wild animals is really concerned about the animals in their care. They even branched out to accept bears. There are too many people out in the world who think they can keep a wild animal as a pet and when they find they can no longer do this they look for someone to bail them out. I'm really glad IEAS is there to "pick up the pieces" of an animal's life and make things better for them. They really try to meet all the animal's needs and I think they do that VERY well.

I am a volunteer docent at Zoo Atlanta, Atlanta,Ga. In early 2002, I found IEAS on the web - only then it was IEFS (International exotic feline sanctuary). I had plans to drive to Houston, Tx. that August for our annual AZAD (Association of Zoo and Aquarium Docents) Conference.
I made
plans to visit the sanctuary in Boyd, Tx located above Fort Worth on my way home. I love all animals, however, cats are very special to me.
I made arrangements for a tour. I was greeted by very nice people and a very nice gentleman who was a volunteer took me on a tour. I got to meet each cat and the volunteer related the story of each cat to me. The sanctuary was very clean and orderly and I could tell that each animal was cared for very well.
I have not had an opportunity to go back to Texas since that time, but when I do, I will visit the sanctuary again!
Since my visit, I have kept up with the sanctuary on the internet and was very happy to hear that they expanded to house bears and like the cats that I saw, I am sure that all of the bears are happy there also.
I would like to encourage everyone who can to visit the sanctuary and if you live locally, I encourage you to check out their volunteer opportunities.
Bonnie, Atlanta,Ga.

I have seen animals who had been homeless, abused or neglected rescued, given a good home, excellent care and lots of love!

Grant them the money to have a full time fund raiser who would be able to visit business in the area and let them know of the needs of the sanctuary. I would also grant them money to be able to take more animals. The people at the sanctuary are good people and they love helping animals and giving them a healthy, loving, caring environment!

This facility has the most spacious habitats for their large cats that can be found most anywhere. All the tigers have swimming pools, and all the cats have many enrichment items. In addition, there is a unique Emotional Enrichment program in place that tends to the animals' emotional well-being; perhaps the only facility in the country with such a program. The bear orphanage has 10 acres of meadows, forests, thickets, ponds, and meadows for the bears to enjoy and play with. Truly the bears have no feeling of even being in captivity.

WOW, the International Exotic Feline Sanctuary is an amazing place! I could tell upon our visit here that they really do care about the animals. Not only did we see big beautiful Cats and Bears, but we also learned what they eat and how it's prepared. We didn't even realize we were learning. We hope to be coming back for a visit soon! I know there have been a few new Animals added!

This place is very cool and the people who work are very kind and know how to care for these amazing animals! Also, they have interns that get to learn and work first hand.

IEAS is a great organization doing exceptional work with abused and abandoned big cats and bears. This organization has worked tirelessly for years to give big cats the best quality of life possible. A few short years ago, they opened their hearts and orphanage to abandoned bears as well, giving these animals a chance at a happy, healthy life. They are so deserving of your time and your money. Please visit today and help save a life.

I visited IEAS several times first as a gift from my wife and the others by taking different kinds of people of all ages (including my sister from Argentina) to show the exceptional work that this group of people does taking care of all these cats and bears.
On the last visit as we were walking
our guided tour we got to a point where all the cats started roaring loud and as our guide inform us that is a very rare moment to see at the time of a visit.
All the interns we met are dedicated to help to the life of these animals and you can see in their faces that they are being taken care of.

The sure deserve to win the prize.

This place is the most incredible example for other animal sanctuaries around the country and the world. Everything they do is for the animals' sake, not just the profitable amusement of people. These animals have incredible stories that should be told, and the sanctuary does more than its fair share to spread knowledge of inhumanity towards wild animals. I believe in IEAS that they are in my will!

They've been able to take in more animals, they've expanded their animals from just felines to bears as well, and they've maintained unmatched integrity.
