In-Sync Exotics, Inc.
January 18, 2012

In-Sync is a wonderful place where abused, neglected, and unwanted exotic cats can find a new home. I've yet to visit or volunteer at a place that offers so much (in terms of companionship, medical care, enrichment, etc.) to their animals.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

A rescue of 20 severely neglected exotic cats. All cats received medical care, a clean place to live, and a new permanent home at a wonderful facility that would take care of them for the rest of their life.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Give them more room to expand. Large exotic cats need room to move and currently there is no more room to build more enclosures.

I learned a lot about animal behavior, the captive wildlife crisis, and various facts about exotic cats (nutrition, behavior, enrichment, operant conditioning, etc.)

Fantastic. I felt like every day I was making a difference.

MY ROLE:
Volunteer & Animal Care. I helped keep the animal enclosures up to the standards of In-sync.

I was an intern at In-sync for 3 months. I've seen a lot of animal sanctuaries and I have rarely seen one so dedicated to the comfort and happiness of the cats. Every decision made has everything to do with how it best works for the cats.
