Every time I visited In Sync I was impressed with how clean it was and how healthy and happy the animals were. Now that I'm a volunteer I'm even more impressed! Vicky's standards are high and the cats and lemurs seem happy and are definitely well taken care of.
I have been a volunteer for almost 3 years at In-Sync, visiting and working at the rescue facility weekly. I was drawn to volunteer after visiting the facility with my family at their yearly Birthday Bash event for the cats. I consider it not only a pleasure but a privileged to serve the animals of In-Sync and work with an amazing team of dedicated, selfless individuals who give so freely of their time, efforts and resources to insure the love, care and safety of the cats. If given the opportunity to share information about In-Sync I take it, talking to strangers, friends, any chance at all and I am sharing the wonderful news about the facility and the work they do. I am, as so many are, a huge supporter of this facility and the work they do.
As a volunteer of In-Sync Exotics, I can say this is amazing facility whose number one priority is making sure every cat is happy and healthy. The proof shows in these beautiful animals. Recently we had some tigers arrive from another facility and several of them were underweight. After only 2 months at In-Sync, they look SO much better - gaining weight, getting the healthy sheen back into their fur, and happily playing with their toys on the playground. Every cage is cleaned everyday by strict standards. These cats are loved so much by every volunteer and staff member and the cats absolutely know it! Every dime In-Sync gets goes to the care of the cats and it takes a lot - cleaning supplies, food, vet care, food, new enclosures, food, medicine/vitamins, food...did I mention the food?? Good, because the cats would never forgive me if I didn't mention the food! :)
I have been a volunteer for a year now and I count my blessings every day that I get to spend time with these wonderful furry felines. There is a peace that washes over you when you spend time with them even if they might just be sleeping and don't know you are there. The staff and other volunteers are the most wonderful people who care greatly for all of our residence. I couldn't think of a better place for our beloved furry friends and me.
I have been a volunteer since March of this year and we have had a emotional year but I wouldn't change a thing about the time that I get to spend with these wonderful creatures and terrific staff. If it weren't for InSync Exotic Sanctuary and Rescue I don't think I would have known about the issues that plague these beautiful creatures let-alone given the opportunity to be a part of this.
I visited In-Sync for the first time last summer after watching a news story about their fight against an outbreak of canine distemper virus. It only took the one trip for me to know without a doubt that I had to be part of In-Sync. When I saw the love and total dedication to the well being of each and every cat that calls In-Sync home, I was overwhelmed. The complete and utter selflessness of every staff member and volunteer as they tried to fight a disease that threatened everything they loved made me see that heroes don't always wear a uniform or get paid. That love and commitment continues every day at In-Sync. I see it each and every time I am there. The cats are happy and loved beyond anything they ever experienced before. They come first, in everything. Each cat is cared for individually according to its needs because each is different and special. It's amazing to see a tiger feel grass under its paws for the first time when all they have known is concrete. Or to see them play with a toy for the first time when all they have known is boredom. In-Sync is the first safe and happy home most of these cats have ever known. I am so honored to call myself a volunteer for In-Sync.
This is the cleanest and best place for the kitties to spend the rest of their days. Vicky is so amazing at the wonderful care she provides for the cats ! Such nice people too!
I'm extremely proud to be part of this incredible sanctuary! I visited others many times in the past. Some were nice, some not so much but the first time I visited In Sync, I was astounded at the level of care, love and cleanliness and felt I had to be a part of it. The workers were so very friendly to my friend and I while we walked around. Now that I am a part of this wonderful place, I can honestly say that the cats are definitely number one priority. All donations go directly to the cats. Care is never anything but 100%. If they need vet attention, they have it. Preventive care is a priority and food is carefully prepared every day. But the absolute finest part of this institution is the LOVE each and every volunteer and staff member gives to the cats. Watching new residents blossom is a real treat to behold.
Originally my family and I were just visitors but my two step-daughters and I have now become volunteers as of March 2014. We have seen the dedication, hard work, love, laughter, tears and overall welcoming into a new family from this amazing place. Respect is top of the list for everyone and every animal here. I can't imagine a better place to dedicate our time to. We will forever be a In-Sync volunteer family!
This place is amazing! Everyone there is dedicated to the care of the cats. The love and respect for these cats is evident every minute of the day. The focus is always to ensure this is a safe, happy and loving forever home for some of God's greatest creatures.
I started volunteering this past spring at In-Sync. I was and still am amazed by the dediction of Vicky and all the other people that dedicate their time to care for these cats. It's amazing to see the transformation of these cats after they arrive. Some are scared, sick and just plain sad. In a very short time and lots of love and attention by the staff, they become the beautiful creatures they were meant to be. The only thing these beautiful creatures need to do is be happy, that is the main priority of In-Sync. The people at In-Sync pride themselves in safety for both the humans and the cats as well as making sure the cats have clean and happy homes. These cats are loved like no other.
I have been a volunteer for over 2 years now and I couldn't be any more honored and excited as I am today. I have seen ISE go through good times and bad times. The care that these beautiful, exotic cats receive is absolutely PHENOMENAL to say the very least. The cats come from a variety of places and often have never felt the luxury of grass or dirt on their paws. What a joy it is to see them being spoiled rotten by such a great group of people. I could go on and on about what a great place ISE really is......but I'll sum it it up in a few short words. The volunteers, staff and interns are fabulous! The cats are the joy of our hearts and they teach us about being better people. Absolutely without a shadow of a doubt, this place is a five start rating!
