You know we’re big cat fans at BigSisLilSis! We talk about cats all the time. But did you know we’re really BIG CAT fans? ^..^
My favorite animal of all time is the mountain lion (also known as the cougar, puma, or panther), and I’ve been dying to take a little road trip to In-Sync Exotics to visit their mountain lions, tigers, lions, leopards, lynx, cheetahs, bobcats and servals. In-Sync is a wildlife rescue and education center in Wylie, Texas which is only around 30 miles from North Dallas. They’ve been around since 2000 and specialize in big cats.
I’m not a fan of zoos, circuses or any other organization that scoops animals out of their natural habitat to be used for our entertainment. In-Sync isn’t one of those groups; quite the opposite actually. They provide safe, caring homes for these big cats who need it for whatever reason. It seems neglect and abuse are the common thread in many of these cats’ stories. They will be loved and watched after for the rest of their days at In-Sync.
What that means is that In-Sync needs operating capital, and their needs for cash will only grow as they take on more and more of these big kitties.
Now for the good news! Today only – September 15th, 2011 from 7am to 7 pm – is your opportunity to leverage a gift to In-Sync Exotics. Your donation to In-Sync will be matched dollar for dollar via Donor Bridge. Your $25 gift becomes $50, $50 becomes $100, $100 becomes $200. You get the idea!!
Just do what I did. Go to In-Sync Exotic’s Donor Bridge page and click on Donate Now. You can also go to Donor Bridge and search for In-Sync Exotics.
If you have big love for big cats as we do, please don’t let this day pass without checking into this great opportunity before it gets away!
Note: I saw on Donor Bridge that the company who processes credit cards for their charities charges a fee of 2.9% for the service. If you donate $50, your fee will amount to $1.45. To me, that’s a small price to pay for an extra $50 for the charity.
