Ms. Tammy Quist Thies

Term:

Since Jan 1999

Leadership Statement:

At TWS, we put the animals’ best interests in the forefront, remembering they are the reason why we are here. All of the cats have spacious enclosures with room to run and play. There are provided enrichment such as perches for climbing and toys for stimulation. The cats are fed fresh meat on a daily basis. They are vaccinated annually and provided with on-site veterinary care. But their care is expensive. Each enclosure costs $7,000 - $25,000 to build. A temperature controlled den is $520. TWS’ winter monthly electricity bill is over $1,000. And a tiger eats 15 pounds a meat a day – which adds uwhen we accomplish our goal, the Sanctuary will no longer be needed.

Program: Cougar Cove

Budget:
$225,000
Category:
Animal-Related
Population Served:
Other Named Groups

Program Description:

Cougar Cove is a construction project that will house up to 16 rescued cougars. Each habitat will provide 7,000 - 10,000 square feet of space with access to an indoor temperature-controlled building. The enclosures will include platforms for lounging and climbing, hammocks for napping and water features for playing and caves for shade. We've cleared the grounds and have begun excavating the land but we need further support to begin construction of the buildings and habitats.

Program Long-Term Success:

The long term succes is measured when all 16 habitats are completed and cougars reside in each area.

Program Short-Term Success:

We are building one habitat at a time.  The central building is already complete.

Program Success Monitored by:

The Executive Director

Program Success Examples:

Habitat is built. Cave structures are completed.

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit

Provide a safe solution for the public and a humane alternative for the animals. Provide free-roaming and natural habitats to the animals in our care. Minimize the number of dangerous wild animals kept as pets through education, legislation and rescue. Provide a sanctuary in Minnesota that can provide more services to the state and surrounding areas through increased capacity, education center and training opportunities for future larger animal veterinarians.
