INTERNATIONAL EXOTIC FELINE SANCTUARY INC
July 21, 2010
The international exotic animal sanctuary has taught me so much about working with dangerous animals and has given me the ability to pass along important education and knowledge to daily visitors. I know I have changed a few lives with the numerous tours given to many a school group. I have also learned how much goes into running a sanctuary: including the funding, the care for the animals, the daily maintenance required for upkeep, and many more aspects. I love being able to see our 55 felines and 14 bears every day and creating amazing bonds with as many of the cats that I can, especially Nala and Kuru, our African Lion couple, every night I go and sit on a bench right next to their habitat and they both come right over to say hello. Nothing can beat that!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
being an intern here and learning everything possible from all the staff, be it the keepers, the curator, the animal behaviorist, the maintenance man, everyone here is quick to offer any help and advice to anyone interested in caring for animals
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
caring for all the wonderful cats and bears here
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
awesome and well-educated and happy to pass on any knowledge that would help me with my future
