A Surprise in the Mail!

We got a wonderful surprise in the mail just a few days ago! Mrs. Cook's 5th grade classes from Boyd Intermediate School took it upon themselves to raise and donate $123 to the Sanctuary! 

They even included a booklet outlining their efforts:

"Why did we choose you? 
          We want to give you the money to help buy the equipment needed to care for the animals. We appreciate you taking your time to care for these animals.  
How We Chose You 
          All three of Mrs. Cook's classes researched different charities in Wise County last fall, and voted for the one we liked best. All three classes chose your organization so we could help raise money for your charity all year long. 
With The Money You Could 
          Food for the cats and bears, Water for them, New toys for all of them, New food and water bowls, New land 
We appreciate you! Thank you for helping wild animals. I'm sure if they could talk they would thank you so much.  
We hope you make their lives better by... 
          Making sure they have lots of food and water, Making sure their cages are clean, They can have new cages, toys, and new food and water bowls."

It was so heartwarming to receive this envelope full of cards and artwork from these wonderful kids. We are honored that they chose IEAS as the organization they wanted to raise money for, and we are sure that the animals would thank them if they could!  

A random selection of the notes we received:

Thank you SO much 
to Mrs. Cook's 5th graders!

All in One!

We've had so many new fundraising opportunities 
recently, we thought it might be easier if we 
put them all in one place, so here they are!

Amazon Smile

Do you like to shop on Amazon? Well, now all of your shopping can raise money for IEAS! By linking your Amazon account to IEAS through Amazon Smile, they will donate a percentage of each of your purchases to the Sanctuary! Click this link to select IEAS as your charity of choice, OR you can visit Amazon Smile directly and search for us (you will have to search for International Exotic Feline Sanctuary). Please keep in mind that now, instead of going to to shop, you'll aways need to go to! Same shopping, more supporting!


Charity Wicks

Charity Wicks has teamed up with IEAS, and now we are selling collectible candles, each featuring a unique scent and a beautiful picture of a Sanctuary resident! A portion of the proceeds from each candle sale will go to the IEAS animals! Click here to start shopping! 



Purchase a bracelet, necklace, or ring from the Sanctuary's Brave Page, and $10 will go directly to the IEAS animals! There are lots of beautiful pieces to choose from, and Bravelets has even added new styles recently! Click here to check them out! 



IEAS has a new online gift shop! A portion of each sale from this online Zazzle shop will go to the Sanctuary, and you can customize your purchase! We've created dozens of items with beautiful pictures of the Sanctuary residents, but you can request certain animals on particular items that you want, and we'll do our best to make it happen!
