Something New Has Been Added to Our Website!

If you have visited our homepage in the last couple of days, you may have noticed a new seal titled American Sanctuary Association and wondered about its significance. 

We are pleased to announce that In-Sync Exotics was recently certified as a sanctuary that provides high quality animal care and housing by the American Sanctuary Association (ASA)!  We now a part of ASA-accredited sanctuaries, linking us to a wonderful network that allows us to share and receive information relating to sanctuary operations and the latest in animal care and housing. 

ASA accreditation is similar to the American Zoological Association, which provides accreditation to zoos; therefore, in order to become a member, In-Sync Exotics had to comply with a variety of high quality animal care standards and housing requirements.

Besides a detailed application process, in which ASA reviewed our organizational qualifications such as fundraising procedures, board oversight, permits and licenses, organizational bylaws, educational materials and veterinary references, ASA also conducted an inspection of our facility to assure that our operations and animal care programs merited ASA’s endorsement.  As a member of ASA, you can be assured we will not breed, sell or trade animals, or use them for commercial purposes.   

We are very excited to be a part of ASA and we look forward to a long and productive collaboration between In-Sync Exotics and our fellow ASA members!
