IEAS Asks You to Give a Little More Love This Season
International Exotic Animal Sanctuary News

December, 2013

International Exotic Animal Sanctuary News


Meet Cappy the capybara! She brings a brand new species to IEAS - we're really broadening our horizons lately, aren't we?! Cappy came to us after her owner realized that she could no longer care for her. She expressed her hope that Cappy would have a better life here at the Sanctuary, where she would receive the care and attention she needs and deserves. We certainly intend to give it to her! 

Capybaras are the world's largest rodent, and the Sanctuary's first herbivorous species! She's only been here for a few days, but we can already see that this sweet girl does her species proud. She's been a little shy so far, but she is so happy to have a habitat full of yummy grass to munch on. She started chomping on it within minutes of being here! She's already starting to warm up to her new family, getting more comfortable and confident each day. 

We hope that you'll all be out to see Cappy at IEAS soon! She is a beautiful girl, and we are honored to have the opportunity to care for her for the rest of her life! Already fallen in love with her? She's ready to be adopted!

Welcome home, Cappy! 

There’s no time like the present to help IEAS! In just a few days,

Wild about Reading!

A wonderful and educational gift for kids! These two beautifully illustrated books highlight one of the species living at IEAS - Moon bears! Jasper's Story tells of this special Moon bear's journey to a free and happy life and is written by Jill Robinson and Marc Bekoff (author of  The Emotional Lives of Animals). 

Moon Bear follows the life of a wild bear, highlighting his daily adventures. Written by Brenda Z. Guiberson, this story makes a fun, eduational tool for little ones to learn about the beauty and sentience of these amazing animals! 

This is a great opportunity to own a unique book that can teach kids all about bears like Tank and Asia, who are the Sanctuary's resident Moon bears! Then, they can visit IEAS and see the bears first hand - and even ADOPT them!
