This page is dedicated to those we meet along the way. Special people and organizations who have proven to us that their efforts are sincere and benefit animals - both in captivity and in the wild... We invite you to visit their sites and encourage you to solicit information about their causes or products. To the best of our knowledge and based upon our experience with them, these people and organizations are real and honest as are their intentions.

We thank them for all they've done and continue to do for us, and for the animals whose lives they touch.

Leopards Etc... - Rob and Barbara Dicely

These two people have become very special in our lives, as have their family of cats. They and their educational program represent everything and anything that education should be. What more can we say... We wish them all the luck in the world for most animals will benefit from their success. www.leopardsetc.com

Cheetah Conservation Fund (CCF) is an organization that many of us are working to support these days. These cats are very special for many reasons. Their web-site will spell it out for you.This organization is very deserving of your time, money and efforts! (One of our favorites)

Few people do more for an individual species than Rodney Jackson and Darla Hillard. These people have dedicated their entire existances to saving these magestic creatures and their efforts deserve everyone's support. snowleopardconservancy.org

On many occasions, we've needed accommodations for volunteers and visitors who traveled to assist us with fundraisers or special projects. Owners of the Laurel Inn in Salinas have always been there to donate those accommodations without question. What can we say? Asking that you patronize these establishments when traveling or meeting in the area is the least we can do...

You don't have to be an animal organization to benefit animals... Pro-Team is a company that donates items to benefit our EARS & GEARS Car show/fundraiser to benefit the elephants so we want any of Charlie's Corvette friends to recognize those efforts and hopefully patronize their company.

Dragon Slayers web logo

Dragon Slayers is a program worthy of anyone’s admiration and support! It is an innovative animal therapy program for physically challenged children and adults.

Founded by Josef Rivers, mentor, dear friend and hero to EARS director, Charlie Sammut, Dragon Slayers uses animals to help people slay their dragons - their physical challenges. And yes, if your wondering and the spelling looks familiar, Charlie’s lion “Josef” is in fact named after this incredible man. Josef accomplishes his incredible work from a wheel chair for he has polio. We wish him our best and will do anything we can to help and further his efforts.

Sinpix logo

We encourage all to visit this site of Sinead Imbaro - www.sinpixs.com - to learn how she has taken it upon herself to set up a professional phtotography program to benefit the elephants of EARS. Her photos are phenominal and her friendship to our elephants and the volunteers of EARS is the same.

STAR%20SANITATION%20Logo%205-2004 sml02

Star Sanitation does far more than donate their services to just our annual EARS events, they donate those services to our entire educational program at EARS and Wild Things, a cost our programs could not afford to pay if they had to. We can’t thank Bart Walker and family enough for thier generocity and good will. We hope all will recognize thier efforts by utilizing their services whenever they have a need for portable restrooms.
