WOW! In a 24 hour time span, IEAS has be SO fortunate to have two AMAZING donations...
First, as keepers sat finishing morning chores, a surprise truck pulled into the IEAS driveway, hauling a Land Rover! Keon Robertson of Austin, TX, ready to get rid of her used car, decided that IEAS would be the perfect place for it! Now, the Sanctuary has a great, reliable, and very happily received vehicle that will be perfect for traveling to meetings, presentations, and public appearances as well as very useful for pick ups and transportation of some IEAS goodies! This is such an amazing show of support and WE CAN'T THANK MS. ROBERTSON ENOUGH!
THEN, yesterday afternoon, Christine Herrera, a supporter of IEAS, came driving into IEAS with a HUGE trailer full of a brand new toys for the cats and bears of the Sanctuary. 13 MASSIVE wooden spools (normally used for wrapping up big cable) are now sitting up on top of our hill, just waiting to be played with! Amazingly, Ms. Herrera loaded all of these HEAVY spools up onto her trailer - by herself! She then hauled them to IEAS where they will be more than welcome in many an animal's habitat! Soon enough, they will be clawed up, chewed on, and rolled around, providing perfect behavioral enrichment, allowing Sanctuary residents to use those instincts of hunting and pouncing, all while having some fun! THANKS MS. HERRERA!
WHAT AN AMAZING DAY & WHAT AMAZING PEOPLE!
THANK YOU BOTH!
