I just can't shake the fact that somebody managed to get a lion into the country... By the gods why?!

They are just a couple miles from my house. We go there now and then and I donate to the cause.

They rescue exotic animals that people finally figure out they can't keep and others who have been kept in private zoos and treated poorly. Some have been declawed, one lost an eye, lots of abuse in their former lives (for most of them). They have a pretty decent life at In-Sync.

The vets we go to for our pets are the vets for the animals there. It's pretty much run by volunteers and operates thanks to donations.

Cool. Unfortunately, most good deeds go unrewarded.

It's awesome that a group like that exists to make sure the animals are looked after. But at the same time, their existence is kinda depressing...

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.

Hyperlink pretty please.

We have two little black squirrels I feed peanuts to, on the way out the door in the morning. Today they brought their new tiny baby (also jet black) out to show me. Then I see we have a new albino squirrel too. Maybe they'll make striped squirrels ? Rolleyes

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.

Only if you point a stick at them while they mate.

What a gorgeous animal!

I saw him in person a couple months ago. Watched the director giving him his vitamins. She was in the enclosure with him and he was loving every bit of attention from her, she has been his mom since he was just a couple months old.

There was an enclosure with three tigers, one male and two females. We were told to stay back a bit as the male would spray if you got too close to his ladies. The director came out of a building across the walkway and started talking to the male. He stated chuffing and carrying on and was so excited she was coming to see him. Her bond with all the animals is amazing. Big Grin

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

are you sure its albino? There are white squirrels in Hendersonville, NC and I think a few other places.

sweet they were letting you meet the baby.

My parents have skunks that hang out in the backyard (including an albino). They're kinda like striped squirrels. Just a wee bit more ornery...and smelly.

It really isn't depressing. They have huge enclosures and pools. Toys and play time to interact with the crew. When you go there in person you realize that it's not a depressing place at all but the best possible solution to someone else's poor decision.
