My husband to0k me to In-Sync for a birthday surprise. I was truly amazed at how much love and care these animals are given. We went to a night feeding and it was just an amazing experience, I just wished it was on the other side of the metro-plex so I could visit often.

While I have never been able to visit, I have seen your work online, and watch it with admiration and astonishment. I keep up with your events and your animals and am very glad to know you have them and they have you in their lives. Thank you for all you do. I love seeing how much you do for the animals in your care.

My kids and I visited In-Sync Exocits a few months ago and they LOVED it. Being close to the cats, watching them play and how well taken care of they are is impressive. I never knew how big these cats were until I was THAT close.... The staff was so involved, caring and friendly...We can not wait to go back!!

I was very fortunate to be able to accompany a friend on the night feeding tour! Being a cat person I of course wanted to walk up to each cage and pet the "kitties" but I was able to restrain myself. The staff was knowledgable and I learned a great deal about a variery of cats, large and small. Seeing these awesome creatures in a more natural setting than a zoo was incredible and inspiring. My favorite experience was being in the center of the compound when all the cats roared at the same time! They are all so beautiful and so obviously well cared for and loved. I hope to go back again soon! Neva D

A friend and I took the night-time "Feeding Tour" in September 2012. What an incredible experience! We spent 3 hours with the staff and volunteers, observing from a few feet away while the big (and small) cats enjoyed their dinner. We learned a lot about the cats' background, care, and habits (most useful tip: step to the side, not back, when the cat sprays!). Some of the tigers and lions had to be hand-fed through the fence -- the big babies. Hearing the cacophany of roars in the "Surround sound" area was truly amazing. My friend, whose husband was concerned about her safety on the tour, sent him a fabulous video of the "talking" cats, assuring him that she was safe. I have been on photo safari in Africa, seeing lions and leopards in the wild, and the In Sync experience was just as special and impactful. I was impressed that the animals were so well-cared-for and loved. The staff and volunteers were knowledgeable, dedicated, and friendly. I highly recommend the feeding tour or any of the other tours. Love the photos and blog posts on the FB page, too!

I absolutely love In-Sync Exotics, and visit on a regular basis. I follow their Facebook page (and their blog postings), which is a great way of keeping up to date with all of the activities that they have going on, and a great way to learn more about each of the cat's that call In-Sync home. I support In-Sync!

I have visited In-Sync Exotics, Inc. on numerous occasions. The cats are extremely well cared for, and the volunteers were very helpful, friendly, and were full of knowledge about each of the cats. I have donated to this organization several times, and it feels great knowing that every dollar that is donated is going towards the care of these cats. In-Sync is a WONDERFUL organization!

In-Sync deserves every dollar that is donated, and I can only hope that they will continue to receive more and more donations from people that also care about the lives of these animals!

It breaks my heart that some people think exotic cats make appropriate house pets, with no regard for the well-being of the animal. Thank goodness for In-Sync Exotics! They have provided healthy, happy lives for many rescued cats. Some were rescued to late and their health was too compromised for them to live very much longer after rescue but at least they knew joy, comfort and love at the end.

I first became aware of In-Sync Exotics when they made the news rescuing the so-called Leona Six. I've visited the website many times since then and am absolutely in awe of the dedication of the volunteers involved. In a world where it seems like there is too much to be done, too many who need our help, it warms my heart every day when I visit the In-Sync website and see the now-healthy cats who were suffering so much before rescue. it reminds me of the story of the starfish...we can't help everyone but at least these few are now living safe, comfortable, love-filled lives.

I happened to be visiting In-Sync, bringing water for the volunteers, just after they started rescuing some desperate cats from Poetry, Texas. The 2 sickest cougars were in the Visitor's Center; one of them could barely lift his head. Just a few days later they were able to post a picture of him walking, drinking fresh water for the first time in who knows how long, and purring for the camera!

I really can't think of any changes that more money can't bring about. They do so much with the little they have.

I visited InSync after hearing there was an exotic cat rescue only a few miles from my home. I've done (pet) cat rescue in the past, and so I tend to be highly critical of conditions that animals are kept in. To say I was pleasantly surprised would be an understatement. The animals were healthy, happy, calm, well-adjusted and CLEARLY adored. The caregivers are completely devoted to the physical, mental and emotional well-being of their charges and it shows, not only in the appearance of the animals, but also their behaviour. Several times I'd walk past animals (a lion, a tiger and a cougar, in that order) and upon seeing me, the animal would roll over onto his/her back, which is a sign of EXTREME trust in a cat, never mind an exotic one! The enclosures are clean, sturdy, well-maintained and well-stocked, the playgrounds have appropriate toys, gorgeous pools, well-maintained grass and wood for the cats to scratch and stretch. Even more telling are a lot of their before and after stories; some of the animals were neglected, mistreated, malnourished or even tortured, and those same animals are now healthy, happy, calm and confident. Being in a place where people look after your every need will do that to even the most cynical apex predator!

Increase their operating budget and get them more land so they could help more animals.

This is by far the best kept secret of the Dallas-Fort Worth Area and that's a shame. Vicki and her staff are the most caring and loving folks and the cats (and Nugget) are well cared for and you can tell they love their keepers. The sanctuary is always clean and well kept, volunteers are always around to answer questions. My only complaint is that it is over and hour away from my house.. otherwise I would be there all the time!!! Truly a great place for kids of all ages to get up close and personal with the cats without danger, my boys both love the place.

I volunteered for about 2 years at InSync. I was always proud of the wonderful work I was a part of. I have seen cats in horrible conditions come to Insync and be loved into health and happiness. They're work is invaluable, these cats are treated like gold. I also know first hand that all donations go directly to taking care of the cats. This place is a god send for these cats. I wish all exotic cats (in captivity) could live at InSync.

At Insync ALL the money from donations is spent on the cats. Some sanctuaries may be prettier but that means they are spending their money on landscaping and not on the cats. Many of the cats have lived in deplorable conditions. Insync provides food, clean water and medicine to heal their body. Vicky has saved cats that no one thought would live.
Insync provides large (better than required by law) enclosures, playgrounds and pools with waterfalls for the tigers. Who love water.
It is healing their soul that can be the most difficult. Many cats have never walked on anything but concrete or even been outside. This is where Insync truly excels. These cats are LOVED and no matter how long it takes InSync heals their soul.

The Great!

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

Everyway. The rescue of the cats from Leona and Poetry were especially moving for me. I saw the unforgiveable conditions the cats were living in. I saw how hard everyone worked to get these cats into an environment where they are loved and respected. If someone walked up and gave me 100,000.00. I would give it all to InSync.

Ways to make it better...

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

Have little openings on the outside fences for vistors to use to take pictures of the cats.
