Review for International Exotic Feline Sanctuary Inc, Boyd, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

IEAS is an amazing sanctuary for animals. They work hard every single day to not only provide the best care for their bears and wildcats, but also educating the public. They take animal care and safety very seriously, and they always put the needs of the animals first. They do an incredible job with their internship program. They educate interns on the the growing concern of exotic animal ownership, as well as, prepare them to change the world of captive wildlife. They are a terrific sanctuary and have the greatest animals.

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

summer 2009 during their animal care summer internship for 3 months.

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

none, they are great. Effective and efficient they work hard to make sure its safe for humans and animals.

Role:  Volunteer & cleaned enclosures, fed animals, general care and upkeep of sanctuary, grant writing, enrichment.

Review for The Wildcat Sanctuary, Sandstone, MN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I was an intern at TWS for a summer, and they have an amazing program. They really focus on educating the truth to interns, volunteers, and public about exotic animal ownership. They are encouraging and a great staff to work with. Their number one priority is the safety and well-being of the animals, and do everything in their power to provide a comfortable and peaceful home for these amazing cats. They are hard workers, and all the animals are treated with the greatest respect. Each animals enclosure is designed for their specific requirements (whether it is breed or personality specific). They always take full advantage of interns and volunteers lending a hand to help build and create a bigger and better place for the animals to live. They are constantly at affairs such as Pride Day, Quarry Days, etc. to get their message of stopping exotic animal ownership out to the public. They are a great place to volunteer!

In my life back at school I have taken what I have learned from the sanctuary about exotic pet ownership and pass it along to my classmates, and coworkers. I see through places like the sanctuary that there are good places these animals can go to escape neglect, malnutrition and find a place of tranquility.

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

This place is amazing!

Would you volunteer for this group again?


For the time you spent, how much of an impact did you feel your work or activity had?


Did the organization use your time wisely?

Very Well

Would you recommend this group to a friend?


Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

opened my eyes to the severe consequences humans have on animals through exotic animal ownership. but with people that choose the animals over themselves, such as TWS, the cats can live in peace for the rest of their lives

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?


Role:  Volunteer & Animal care intern at the sanctuary for 2010.
