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!

It's Giving Tuesday!
Razoo, an online source for nonprofit fundraising, is sponsoring a day to give back - #GivingTuesday. The Razoo Foundation has generously contributed $100,000 in prizes to be donated to nonprofit organizations taking part in #GivingTuesday - like IEAS! Donations from supporters like you will be tallied all day long on Tuesday, December 3, and the best part? You can make your donation NOW and still have it count towards the contest!
There is a minimum donation of $10, and anyone can donate! You can click here to visit the Sanctuary's #GivingTuesday page. Remember! In order for your donation to count for the contest, you must donate on Tuesday, December 3 OR you must check the box "Make My Donation Count for #GivingTuesday!"
There are lots of prizes being given out by Razoo in addition to the donations. In fact, there will be TWO leader boards to keep track of, each with a different set of prizes!
Top #GivingTuesday Fundraiser prizes will go to those who raise the most funds as part of their #GivingTuesday project. The Top Nonprofit Organization prizes will go to the all time fundraising nonprofit leaders on Razoo!
There will also be Golden Ticket prizes throughout #GivingTuesday
awarded to both participating donors and to nonprofits.
