Wow! What a Week!

Wow!  What an exciting week!  Before we share the final Donor Bridge donation totals with you, we must do a quick recap of this week's events!

On Monday, we introduced you to our new "cub" reporter, Jessica Helmholtz and quizzed our readers on the identity of the tiger who primarily starred in our new video, "Swimming with Tigers" (click HERE to read this posting)!

On Tuesday, we provided a medical update on Saber and Kazuri, two tigers who had some "tummy problems" and we revealed the identify of the tiger who starred in our new video, "Swimming with Tigers." we tried, unsuccessfully, to wake up Sabu to let him know that our Fall Photo Shoot is coming up!  Click HERE to read our posting!

Wednesday's blog posting was rather challenging for some of our readers, as we posed the question -- Who Am I? x 4 (plus we included a little education on "tiger stripes, click HERE).  We had a lot of submissions, but the first person who correctly identified all  four tigers was Lynn McCarthy!  Congratulations Lynn -- if you are interested in the small prize, please let us know via email!  There were four other people who correctly guessed the tigers identities  (Kelli, Lark (she took the pictures), Sara, and Keri), so next time we'll have to step up the Who Am I? and make it even more challenging!

So let's take a look at our mystery tigers once more!

Hello Apollo!

Top of the morning to you, Stryker!

Looking good, Iona!

Greetings Abrams!

Yesterday, we put out an appeal (click HERE), explaining why the Donor Bridge one day donation event and the iGive Program was important to In-Sync Exotics.  Bottom line:  without the generosity of our supporters, like you, we simply could not provide a loving home for the exotic animals that need us the most. 

Within the first hour of the event, 13 donors stepped forward and donated $745 to the animals and by the end of the standard lunch hour (1:00pm) over 117 people donated $9,555!  This was absolutely amazing considering we raised only $3,308 last year!

The final donation total for 2012 came to $18,287!!!

We are overcome with gratitude to the 234 donors who contributed $18,287, so we can continue our mission of providing a safe and loving home for our animals! We don't know what the matching monies will be until Donor Bridge performs the final calculations, but as soon as we hear from them we will post the results on this blog.  The matching dollars will go towards the Big Cats Need Dental Care Too fundraiser!

This truly makes our "Happy Cat Month"!  Really!  September just happens to be "Happy Cat Month" and there's no doubt that we have a lot of happy cats at In-Sync Exotics!

We hope you enjoyed this week's blog posting and will join us again next week for more informative, funny, and interesting blog postings on our wild ones! Remember, we are open for tours Thursday - Friday until October 1st (that is when we change to our Fall/Winter weekend only hours), so we look forward to your visit!  

Once Again, Thank You Very Much 
For Your Generosity!
