Dixie Neeley, the Founder of the Triple Me Mac Equine Sanctuary in Bulverde, rescued this off-the-track thoroughbred from a boys ranch. Malt & Jam was starved and had a broken shoulder. The picture was taken last summer - he is totally healed and healthy! http://www.triplememac.org
The International Exotic Animal Sanctuary recently became home to two tiny American black bear cubs, one male and one female, who were found abandoned in their wild Alaska. These two were young, helpless, and unable to survive on their own. As such, they were transported to their new forever home in Texas. At IEAS, they will have 1.5 acres of forest, meadow, and grass to thrive in. With the help of Emotional Enrichment, they will learn to find security and trust in their new family. IEAS staff is eager and excited to make the lives of these cubs as amazing as possible, and they can't wait to watch them live like wild bears in a safe, caring environment!
