I have family in Dallas and we actually visited this sanctuary about 2 years ago and still speak about it. I was impressed with the amount of space the animals had access too, the way the enclosures are designed so that they can change the environment(move cats to a different space for change) access for cleaning, actual beautiful swimming pools, lots of enrichment opportunity etc animals were clean and in good condition too. Each animals story is posted on their enclosure and it is heartbreaking where they come from but heartwarming to see them at In-Sync. The staff are dedicated and I felt it was a good place to be if you are a big cat ;)

I've only been able to visit in-Sync one time but I was very impressed with the cleanliness, the caring loving staff and the "happiness" of the animals.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

See to it that they had enough money to build and staff their own veterinary hospital.

The nicest rescue site I have ever seen. The staff and volunteers are pleasant and dedicated to the big cats. The love and affection for these rescued animals is overwhelming. The large facility is inviting, and makes one feel good about the lives these animals will have from now on. They keep the public informed with Facebook and their website. It is exciting to keep up with their news and events. It is a treasure more people should know about.

This amazing rescue has had a terrible 2013 with the unfortunate outbreak of distemper. Through devastating losses of beloved cats they have kept their hopes and spirits high and have nursed many back to health. They have taken in new cats and are working on finishing a new enclosure. They post daily on Facebook and let those of us who cannot visit often know how our feline friends are doing and show us the great strides they are taking to make sure these cats are happy, healthy are always wonderfully cared for. The people who watch over these precious animals truly love them and have the utmost respect for them.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

GIVE THEM MORE DONATIONS! They are perfect and I wish I could do more to help them grow and be able to care for more cats.

I absolutely love Insync Exotics!!! The cats are their concern and they only do what is best for them. The enrichment exercises are thoughtful - the cats love them and we love to watch them. It is amazing to see the cats that come here and how much they have changed since making Insync Exotics their home. The best rescue organization I have ever seen!!

Our daughter found In-Sync not to long after she relocated to Texas, and of course her Father and I had our reservations about her becoming a volunteer there. But even after our first visit to this magical habitat, we were able to breathe much easier due to the fact that we were able to see for ourselves how strictly Vicki's safety measures were enforced- without deviation, and that the volunteers are REQUIRED to act accordingly. No fuzzy instruction here! Vicki's concern for her volunteers's only rival that of her concern and passion for her children, her big kitties- as we so lovingly refer to them as.
Now a year or so down the road, we look forward to seeing our 'other' children almost (wink-wink) as much as we do our daughter when we come to town to visit! It is truly an awe inspiring time! If you are anywhere near this amazing facility, we whole heartily encourage you drop by and say hello! Having a rotten day, week? I guarantee, after a stroll through the amazing grounds and a few heart to hearts with some of their more than willing to listen residents, your outlook will be changed for the better! But,
CAUTION! This magical habitat is highly addictive! You may find yourself looking for our leader, Vicki and inquiring about how YOU can become one of the highly esteemed volunteers that have found that inner peace that only comes with the satisfaction of knowing that YOU are doing your part to help care for these now oh-so-lucky-cats who have found such a wonderful, loving home at In-Sync! And like our daughter, you too will be heard saying, "I've found my happy place!"

In-Sync is an experience of the heart. These exotic animals will walk into your heart and become part of your soul. You cannot ignore them, their eyes tell you stories that cannot be written, but felt. They are unwilling victims of humanity's need for control and power. Vicki and In-Sync give these animals a last chance to live in a truly caring environment. They will experience human love many times for the first time in their lives . . . . This group is truly dedicated and will move mountains to care for these amazing creatures, 24/7/365 days a year!! ! I am a prior Board member from many years ago . . .

I first came to In-Sync over 10 years ago. I Found out about it by word of mouth. Could not believe the passion Vicky has for these cats. And sadly the stories of each and every cat that was at that facility at that time. I came to realize the word Man-kind was an oxymoran. Most of those at the facility at that time and since would be dead if it were not for her rescue efforts She literally lives, eats and sleeps (with one ear on a baby type monitors in the cage area ) cats. She did not have a large volunteer base then but as the facility grew the volunteers came as word of mouth and the internet presence grew. These volunteers share the passion and they see it in Vicky. All rescue facilities have merit, but this one has the heart of gold stolen from it's founder.
In-Sync has survived because Vicky would not say no to the cats,
she has fought long and hard for it's existence. Bless her and her troups of volunteers, donors and supporters.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have seen it grow in size and number of animals rescued.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Duplicate Vicky and her passion to save these animals.

We visited for the first time for the Easter event after hearing from friends that it was a great place for the grands. It was a great experience. A volunteer mentioned "here comes moma " as the animals were a little agitated bythe great number of people present. I rescue feral cats and was very pleased to see her calming influence on them. I could see one tiger waiting his turn for her and he was so excited! The animals were well taken care of and happy if not a little apprehensive at so much dinner looking at them...lol! Sorry I don't. Know "Moma 's name!!! Great place!
