Welcome Okemo to the Family!

Yesterday, we welcomed Okemo, a Bengal tiger approximately 17 years of age, to the In-Sync Exotics family!

We agreed several months ago to give Okemo a home after noticing this older tiger, living alone in an enclosure at the bankrupt sanctuary, The Wild Animal Orphanage (WAO), at the time we picked up the sanctuary’s last lion, Sabu.   

When we learned the WAO was having trouble placing some of its older tigers, we agreed to take in Okemo and Lance, a 25 year old tiger, at the same time.  Sadly, Lance was euthanized by the WAO last week, so that just left Okemo needing a home.

So, as Okemo settles in to his new environment, we will be giving him a physical exam to determine his health condition and address any special needs identified by his new veterinarian. 

We are thrilled Okemo joined our family and we hope you will come out and join us in welcoming him to In-Sync Exotics!
