The care they provide and the LOVE they have for the animals is obvious just by walking around the place and seeing how healthy, happy, relaxed and playful the animals are. These cats know they have a good life and are thoroughly enjoying being pampered! I proudly support In-sync exotics and will continue to forever!
In-Sync is dedicated 100% to the health and well being of all animals in their care. Have visited several times and related to several volunteers. They care as much about the cats mental well being, as they do their health. The enclosures and all housing are made with the individual needs of each animal in mind. They receive top notch medical care, and all volunteers and staff are completely dedicated to the welfare of these lucky cats.
I live in Maryland, but my sister lives in Wylie, Texas and has been a volunteer at In-Sync for many years. Whenever I visit her one of the first things I want to do is visit In-Sync. The place is truly amazing! All of the animals are so well cared for, have such wonderful accomodations and the staff and volunteers work tirelessly to keep those huge cats comfortable and happy. They use enrichment practices that keep the cats busy and make them use their brains. Every single person is so dedicated to the welfare of these cats and it's so evident how much each person cares. Whenever they hear of cats in distress, that need saving, they go all out to get them to In-Sync and start the long road to health and well being. As with all non-profits, money is always as issue, but somehow they manage to pull it together, get those accomodations built, get the vet care these cats need so desperatly, and get them settled into their new homes. They are always thinking of ways to make their lives better and ways to raise funds for the well being of the cats: such as building pools with water falls for the tigers. Building cages with mutltiple levels for climbing for the cats that need to be off the ground. It has grown considerably since I first saw it - I don't have any numbers at hand but I think they now have at least 45-50 cats and the food bills alone are enormous! They truly can use all the help they can get to keep the cats healthy and happy. They've had to turn away a fair number of cats that needed help because they simply don't have the funds to take in all of the animals that are needy. And that upsets all of them because they would like to save them all!
Very nice place! The animals are well cared for and happy (not to mention BEAUTIFUL), and the staff is knowledgable and friendly. I've never been so close to a big cat as at this place--truly a wonderful experience!
My daughter, who loves all animals but especially big cats, found In-Sync several years ago and has since become a volunteer, she drives over an hour to get there. When my grandson was younger he wanted to adopt a tiger for his birthday so he did. There is an adoption program but the cats never leave their home and you can only visit through the fences. He is now old enough to volunteer, so he gives up one Saturday a month to do so. I have visited many times and always find things clean, the animals well cared for with playgrounds, toys, enrichment, swimming pools and dens which are cool for summer and filled with hay keep them warm in the winter. Each variety of cat is cared for in that cat's best interest. Tigers like swimming pools and water tubs, lions do not. Their feeding time is late in the day with no visitors present, except by special permission, so that the cats can eat in peace. When a cat has lived out its lifetime, it is respectfully cared for and its name goes on a memorial wall. The ashes are placed in an urn chosen just for that cat, and maintained in a special place. No cat goes unloved. All together a wonderful place for some of God's most beautiful creatures that can no longer, for whatever reason, live in their natural world.
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 went for a visit during Spring Break, I have never seen a place that was as clean and animals better taken care of. It is an amazing place!!
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.
The care and protection they give is outstanding. The beautiful animals are given a new chance at life in a safe place I plan to visit again soon There needs to be more caring people in this world this sanctuary gives me hope for the future
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.
