I visited the facility one hot summer day and very much enjoyed seeing that some formerly unwanted, neglected exotic cats had found a good home. Observing both younger & older volunteers caring for the animals, you could sense the love they feel for the cats. I also appreciated the opportunity to get a closer look than you would normally experience at a zoo. I don't live in the area, but look forward to visiting the sanctuary again sometime in the near future.

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

getting to see a number of beautiful animals saved from unhealthy situations.

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

try to find ways to get it more publicity.

I love In-Sync! They take such great care of all their rescued cats. In the 4 years I've been a regular visitor, I have been horrified at the condition of some of the cats when they arrive, after being confiscated from abusive owners. It's truly shocking what some people can do to animals. But, then, the magic at In-Sync happens! The cats learn that people can be loving, not cruel, that they will always get the best food, best medical care, best enclosures, enrichment, social interaction, and TONS of love! They blossom under the care they get at In-Sync, and the volunteers always seem so dedicated to these beautiful animals. I LOVE watching the enrichment demonstrations on Saturdays, when the cats get all their goodies! I wish I could join the volunteer team, but my work and family obligations simply don't allow that at this time, so for now I'll just keep vising as often as possible. I also follow the cats on Facebook, and love all the updates, pictures and videos.

I have been visiting In-Sync for about 6 years, and love watching the progress of the cats! Watching them get happy and healthy, and flourish under the love they receive there, is so rewarding. All the volunteers are helpful and answer all my questions, and always seem to genuinely love their big furry charges! I also love following the cats' photos and stories on Facebook and the blog, I feel like I know what's going on even if I can't get there as often as I would love to.

I first became aware of Insync Exotics when Sabu was moved from San Antonio to Wylie, Texas. I've been following the WAO case for many years and I am pleased the 2 WAO lions and 1 tiger found a new home with this facility. I love the animal reports on the blog--especially the report on Sabu as he is making great progress in his ability to not only walk, but run again! It is obvious that the staff cares about these animals very much -- you guys, rock!

In-Sync Exotics has helped so many abused, neglected cats. The recent rescue in Poetry, TX is but one example of the tireless effort Vicky and all the staff & volunteers put into every aspect of the sanctuary. The cats have playgrounds and pools and toys and large enclosures. No more teeny tiny cages for those babies.....and that's what they are.....Vicky's babies!

I really don't know of any changes that need to be made, but I trust Vicky and her staff will do whatever is necessary to make this the safest and best facilty of its kind. Actually, I think it already is!!!!!!!!!

Every time my family and I have visited In-Sync, we have found all of the volunteers to be extremely helpful, kind and knowledgeable. The animals are in very nice habitats with clean water and plenty of toys- you can really tell that the people of In-Sync take an active role in making sure the residents, both big and small, have as interesting and enjoyable a life as possible. I simply cannot recommend this place enough!

Animal care, enrichment

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

find the money to purchase more space so that more animals could come in and experience the high level of love and devotion the current residents enjoy.

When Sabu and Jynxie, two former WAO lions went to In-Sync Exotics, I wanted to learn as much as I could about this organization. I reviewed their 990s (Organizations Tax Returns), reviews, and visited their website, Facebook page, Twitter, and blog. I was astounded with all the information that is available to the public! The 990's clearly showed donations went towards animal care. The stories on the blog and Facebook were very interesting. But most importantly, I saw the BEST video of Sabu, who when he left the WAO could barely walk without falling down after taking a few steps, RUN after a ball! He looked like he was having so much fun! Thank God he went to Insync Exotics. They obviously care about their animals and they take the time to heal animals with serious disabilities, no matter how old they may be. Because of In-Sync, two older lions, Sabu and Jynxie, have a second chance at a really good life. In-Sync also accepted a tiger from the WAO just last week - Okemo - who lived alone for most of adult life at the now closed WAO. Finally, Okemo will be around a lot of people and animals -- so he will never be "alone" again! Thank you very much, Insync for taking in three of the WAO animals, and giving them a chance to love life again!

I went for a visit this summer and was very happy to see Jynxie and Sabu having a great time at In-Sync Exotics!

Like any charity, donations and volunteerism is crucial--and In-Sync Exotics could use both!! I pray that this organization will someday be recognized nationally for all their hard work and dedication! Great job, everyone!

In-Sync Exotics is a wonderful sanctuary, providing a loving home to these beautiful cats. I always enjoy visiting the sanctuary because it warms my heart to be so close to these incredible animals. My favorite part of the visits are when the tigers are chuffing, and when the lions sing.

The sanctuary is well taken care of and it is clear that the volunteers love the animals. It is a wonderful place to educate the public - especially children - about exotic cats. In-Sync Exotics sanctuary really makes a difference in the lives of the cats and in our community.

I have visited InSnyc Exotics many times and it still amazes me every time I visit how much love and care these animals receive. I have seen some of these beautiful cats who have come to the sanctuary looking like they have little to no chance of recovering from the neglect they have experienced. But then I return a few months later and I am so happy to see the incredible changes that Vicki and her staff of volunteers have accomplished! In Sync is a true blessing to these animals!

Since I first visited In Sync, it has made me more aware of the need for sanctuarys like this one. To see a cat come in who can't walk correctly, among other medical issues, and others are saying needs to be euthanized, then to come back a few months later to see that same cat not only walking... but running is an amazing testimony to the treatment these animals are receiving!

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

The only change I would make at In Sync, is for them to gain more donors and aquire enough money to continue to grow so that they could take in even more cats!
