BENEFITING: International Exotic Animal Sanctuary
The International Exotic Animal Sanctuary needs to raise $1800 through the generous donations of friends and strangers so that we can continue to provide the best quality of life to our animal residents. Every dollar that can be spared helps, and donors will have the satisfaction of knowing that they made a difference in the lives of some of the Earth's most amazing creatures.
THE PROBLEM: One of our misting pumps has failed on several occassions and it would cost more to get it fixed than to replace it. With temperatures in North Texas supposed stay in the 90s for a while, we need to replace the pump as soon as possible for the benefit of the 20+ animals who benefit from it.
BACKSTORY: IEAS is home to 71 exotic animals - including 2 lions, 18 tigers, and 30 bears - and many of them are unused to coping with the Texas heat. Part of porviding these amazing creatures the best quality of life involves giving them the ability to make choices for themselves. The focus of this fundraiser is their ability to choose how to keep themselves cool. One of the options our residents have to beat the heat is to hang out around a system of misters that goes to each habitat. These misters create cool pockets of air where the animals can go and relax in comfort.
