The first time that I visited IEFS was when my daughter-in-law was an intern there. She stayed for six months. I was very impressed with the way IEFS takes care of animals who had previously been in bad situations. It gives the big cats, bears, and others a place away from abuse, neglect, and unnatural settings. They not only give them a place to stay, but the environment there is as natural as it can be. The animals have very large areas in which to roam, play, lie down. I feel like they are well taken care of and comfortable. They aren't cramped in small cages; they are no longer in someone's house or backyard, chained up; they are not expected to do tricks or perform. They can just "be". The animals are also given toys and situations in which their imaginations are stimulated and they grow mentally and emotionally as well. I admire the work they do at IEFS and try to donate whenever possible to help them in their efforts.
