New Houses and Pools!

You would be hard pressed to find a time in the past few months when Roy, our Maintenance Supervisor, and Richard, Director, haven't been welding, cutting, attaching, fixing, and rebuilding twenty year old houses for the feline residents of IEAS alongside dedicated volunteers and community service individuals. The new houses will have improved safety features for both the protection of the cats, and the safety of the staff. Khera's has just been finished, Kimberly's is in the works, and we have three more lined up! It is our HOPE that soon, Karen, and our new tigers, Danvir and Sajani, will have spacious and comfortable new houses to relax in! We are also hoping to enlarge Danvir and Sajani's pool, so they can comfortably enjoy it together. To change these hopes into reality, we need your help!

These three houses and one pool will cost us about $10,000 in materials total. Luckily, we have some great volunteers who have promised to help us build the houses so the labor will be free, though we may reward them with some donuts in the mornings! A big thanks to Billy, George, and Matt for their assistance in helping to build the last few houses! We also want to thank the community service department in Decatur, TX for allowing individuals to complete their community service hours by working them off at IEAS. In the past year, over 6,000 hours of community service have been completed here, and the free labor they have done has been immensely helpful!

We will be setting up a thermometer so you can all stay updated on how close we are to reaching our goal. We understand that this letter falls on difficult times for everyone, but remember, every dollar counts! Do what you can and we can promise you that the cats whose lives YOU helped change, will be grateful for what you have given!
