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've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

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

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

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.

By seeing how well the animals live and are maintained. This place is so very caring and deserves all the donations they can get to help care for these animals.

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.

The place is truly amazing. They have dedicated their efforts to provde some of the most beautiful animals on the planet with a safe and secure place to live out their lives. Many of the animals have suffered terrible abuse and to have a place like this for them to live comfortably is worthy of support.

I worked as an intern at IEFS back in 2003 and had a fantastic experience there. I can attest to the fact that the staff and administrators of the sanctuary have the animals' best interests at heart and do all they can to give the animals the best possible quality of life. Being certified as a santuary by the AZA also provides evidence of the high standards of the sanctuary.

I can't think of any changes I would recommend at this time.

My daughter had the opportunity to be an intern at the International Exotic Animal Sanctuary in Boyd, Tx. While she was there I had the opportunity to visit and hear the stories of the various animals they care for there. The stories range for distressing to incredible, and the bears and cats are impressive. I am not a great photographer, but I will treasure the pictures I took. The staff was, and continues to be helpful to my daughter, and even without the rest that will make them special in my mind. I got the best pictures of Domino, though he is not a cat I would like to meet outside of his cage. In the end there were Lions, and tigers, and bears ... and I felt fortunate to have been in their company for a short time.

I listened to the stories of animals that are well cared for now, but that frequently came from less desirable circumstances.

Provide better funding to address the needs of the animals they have and to expand for other animals in need. The brown bears looked to have a lot of fun, but their space is limited. The need is more than the available resources

This place was an excellent one. I really enjoyed my experience here learning about the different animals. I liked hearing about their personalities and other information that you don't get from Zoos when you walk around by yourself. I really loved thier Leopard Mia. she was so cute and rolled around. All of their cats seemed very happy and content!
