Starting the Week With A Smile (or Two)!

We thought you might want to start the holiday week with a few smiles, so allow me to present, once again, Sabu and Chance!

Remember Sabu?  He arrived this year on May 17th and at the time of his arrival, he could only take a few steps before falling down.  Today, 21-year old Sabu is probably the happiest lion we have ever seen at In-Sync Exotics.  When it comes to his turn on the playground, Sabu gets so excited--what a joy it is to see him embrace each new day with excitement!

It's hard not to smile when watching Sabu's antics!  The following videos were taken of him right after he ran on to the playground this weekend!

Run some more Sabu, run some more for us!

We are so thrilled to have been able to give Sabu a second chance at happiness!

Speaking of chances, this next video of Chance will also bring a smile to your face.  This handsome young bobcat is slowing getting accustomed to his new home as he explores his new world:

It's amazing how the simplest things in life can bring you the most joy--as demonstrated by Chance and Moses!

Must I Come Out Now?

It always makes us happy to participate in exciting events so we share with others why In-Sync Exotics is a special home to special animals:

Meet the volunteers who gift wrapped presents at Barnes and Noble located in the Stonebriar Mall on Thursday, December 15, 2011:  Lisa Williams (Board Director), Elizabeth Chambers, Amy Frank, Annette Creekmore, and Jodi Payson (Board Director)!  These hardworking ladies wrapped presents from 4pm to 10pm!

Barnes and Noble allowed nonprofit organizations to gift wrap for donations near their registers (upstairs and downstairs) during the holidays. On December 2nd, we took the 10-4 pm shift. On that particular day, our volunteers were Lisa Williams, Tom Dillon, Mary Marsh, Kim Morris, and Jodi Payson.

We make just over $150! Since this was our first year participating in this "wrapping event," we had no idea what to expect, but we will be ready for next year!  We may not have earned a lot of donations, but we did receive a decent amount of traffic and a lot of questions about out facility!

With events like these, sometimes it is all about educating the public... the donations are just a little bonus!

Merry Christmas, everyone!
