In-Sync Exotics, Inc.
October 2, 2012

I volunteered for about 2 years at InSync. I was always proud of the wonderful work I was a part of. I have seen cats in horrible conditions come to Insync and be loved into health and happiness. They're work is invaluable, these cats are treated like gold. I also know first hand that all donations go directly to taking care of the cats. This place is a god send for these cats. I wish all exotic cats (in captivity) could live at InSync.

At Insync ALL the money from donations is spent on the cats. Some sanctuaries may be prettier but that means they are spending their money on landscaping and not on the cats. Many of the cats have lived in deplorable conditions. Insync provides food, clean water and medicine to heal their body. Vicky has saved cats that no one thought would live.
Insync provides large (better than required by law) enclosures, playgrounds and pools with waterfalls for the tigers. Who love water.
It is healing their soul that can be the most difficult. Many cats have never walked on anything but concrete or even been outside. This is where Insync truly excels. These cats are LOVED and no matter how long it takes InSync heals their soul.

The Great!

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

Everyway. The rescue of the cats from Leona and Poetry were especially moving for me. I saw the unforgiveable conditions the cats were living in. I saw how hard everyone worked to get these cats into an environment where they are loved and respected. If someone walked up and gave me 100,000.00. I would give it all to InSync.

Ways to make it better...

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

Have little openings on the outside fences for vistors to use to take pictures of the cats.
