In 2010, Capital Meats donated over 4,500 lbs. of meat worth over $39,000 to Nature's Promise Exotic Animal Sanctuary to help feed exotic animals including Siberian Tigers.
Every year there are thousands of animals that are without homes, or are not cared for properly. Some of these animals are never talked about. These animals include more “exotic” types like monkeys, lions, and tigers. What happens to them when their care givers realize that they are too much to handle? Places like Nature’s Promise Animal Sanctuary in Gore, VA, is a prime example of a place for these animals to go.
Nature’s Promise was started in 1997 by Jim Smith and his family who decided to take on a passion that they had for these animals and make it a reality. “The entire basis of foundation is encompassed by one simple mission: to provide a caring and healthy environment for exotic animals who are in need of stable placement, and to allow them to live out there life there accordingly”, says the Nature’s Promise Website.
CMI is providing food to feed these forgotten animals. Nature’s Promise houses over 15 large cats and other exotic animals and the average cat consumes 10-50 lbs of meat a day. So far, CMI has donated approximately 30,000 lbs of food to help feed these animals.
Not only does Capital Meats recognize our local families in need (which we help through state Food Banks), here at CMI we know that there are other lives that need help to be able to live a full and happy life.
