In-Sync Exotics, Inc.
July 12, 2011

I moved here from California 4 months ago, to live with my sister and go to school to earn a degree in Zoology. My sister is well aware of my fascination with cats and she was the one who turned me on to the big cat rescue 20 minutes from our home. The minute I stepped foot at In-Sync I saw Kiro, and I knew this is where I truly wanted to be. I have been apart of the In-Sync family for about two months now, and I have never worked so hard in my life; There has been my share of blood, sweat, and tears—but its all been 100% worth it. I can’t imagine anything more rewarding than being a part of the rehabilitation and care of these beautiful creatures. I have developed a bond with several of these cats, and I feel that I need to do anything and everything in my power to contribute to their well-being. I have never felt so content in life. I know I’ve found my home.
