INTERNATIONAL EXOTIC FELINE SANCTUARY INC

Is the following a description of a swanky five-star hotel or the International Exotic Animal Sanctuary?
“Our kitchen is open at 6am and closes after the latest little arrival has it’s late-night dessert of grapes, sliced strawberries and cantaloupe at 10pm. Swimming pools are available to each and everyone who likes to swim, but the IEAS staff graciously appreciates that no one puts rocks, branches, leaves or grass into their water fountains. Seasonal shedding of hair is both tolerated and appreciated; the IEAS staff is prepared and ready to clear all unwanted debris from any and all pool pumps 365/24/7. Free watermelon, corn-on-the-cob, and complimentary applesauce is available to all residents that look like teddy bears. Residents with demonstrative dark stripes accented atop brilliant orange or overall white complexions are invited to leave tires stuck in the doors to their rooms whenever the regular housekeeping service is inconvenient. The IEAS staff will always check-back-in later to insure that your daily services are provided at a convenient time. Every time. Everyday.”
I’ve been visiting the IEAS regularly for close to ten years. I can’t prove it, but I am convinced that each of these animals has 500+ channel television in their houses as well as all their toys, spacious habitats, pools, superb nutrition, spotless maintenance, and loving care. When exotic animals finally do get a chance to take over the world, the IEAS will inevitability be their preferred command post.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Watching 200+ interns move onto professional animal care and education programs. And each one of these iterns gets zapped with a job within 6 months of being at the IEAS, even though the overall industry only has 8,000 jobs, and a 10% turnover each year.
How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
Volunteer & Last Sunday I helped clean up the grizzly bears' leftover cantaloupe, asparagus, and grapes. Leftover cantaloupe, asparagus and grapes that grizzly bears have walked on his not pretty.
