I have been associated with InSync as a donor and volunteer for many years. I have seen first-hand how the animals are nurtured, nursed back to good health, and loved. The dedication by the entire staff, and especially by Vicki Keahy, is amazing. The premises are spotlessly clean, being maintained 24 hours a day. There are large, natural habitats for the animals' exercise, and the enclosures are safe to the public. There is a high degree of education, teaching people and especially children, to respect wildlife.

I visit InSync Exotics frequently. I have witnessed sick animals become healthy, lame animals become playful, and shy animals become loving--all because the staff and volunteers at InSync have dedicated their lives to caring for these large cats. They have built enclosures, waterfalls, and pools with their own hands. They have multiple events every year, not just to raise funds, but also to teach the public about the majesty of the animals and the necessity to treat them kindly and with dignity. The facility is managed in a professional and humane manner, and yet Vicki Keahy and her staff always find time to talk to the public about their "babies". InSync Exotics is an inspiration to anyone who loves and respects wildlife.

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

I have seen firsthand how injured and ill animals have received veterinary help, proper nutrition, and clean, spacious living quarters, thus becoming healthy and energetic.

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

I would hire a public relations director whose job it would be to see that the public is made aware of the work done here. Hopefully, this would creat a greater influx of donations. Additional sponsors are needed to contribute goods, volunteer time, and money.

I had been very disappointed by the attitude of their staff while visiting this facility as well as the lack of recognition for donations made for their cause.

Train employees that all visitors are also donors and should be treated with respect and a simple thank you goes a long way. It isn't the size of the donation; it is the fact that someone took the time to offer assistance. YOU ARE WELCOME!

Dear PaintGal: I am saddened that your last visit to In-Sync Exotics (August 2011) did not meet your expectations. In-Sync Exotics is primarily staffed by volunteers and so it will be difficult to ascertain what transpired during your last visit. However, I want you to know I will address this issue with board, staff, and volunteers to ensure that we provide the best customer service to our visitors and donors alike. You are right, it isn't the size of the donation that counts—it’s people like you who contribute towards the care of over 60 exotic wild animals that matters to us. I think I speak for all of us by saying we would love to have you come out and visit the animals again--perhaps when the weather is a little cooler! If you would like to speak with me regarding your concerns, you are more than welcome to contact me at (972) 442-6888. Thank you! Regards, Vickey Keahey CEO & President of In-Sync Exotics

I had a wonderful experience last Easter at In-Sync. My Nieces and their small grand kids came to hunt the eggs, and prizes, but the expressions on their faces, as well as the adults can not be beat.
We had a wonderful time watching the interaction of the cats. Their beauty and grace is breath taking.
This is a perfect place for these beautiful creatures. They all seem so happy and healthy.
It takes a great deal of lov , money and dedication to save God's Large creatures.
I hope In-Sync can continue forever. Jackie Ellis

The cats at in-sync are so well taken care of and so happy, its a beautiful thing to see. The people there really care about them, as if they were their own children and they are treated as such. I love this place.

Wonderful facility! So glad they are willing to take on the responsibility of caring for these beautiful big cats. Unfortunately, our state laws allow for the ownership of wild cats, which require much more experience, money, and time than most individuals are willing to give. In-Sync Exotics has stepped in to rescue these poor animals, bringing them back to health, and educate the public about their plight.

Seeing what In-Sync has done, to help the big cats, is so impressive! My children have been with me to visit the facility, and have learned about the necessity of rescue organizations such as this.

I really can't think of anything.

My family in Ashtabula, OHIO absolutely LOVES In-Sync Exotics. We go through their pictures daily looking for updates on our favorite tigers and cougars. My children are learning how to conserve and take care of a scarce population of big cats through these pictures. I have personally visited the rescue and am in love with the staff, the big cats and how they take care of each other and the rescues. They have the utmost respect for the life these cats have lead up to their relocation. They make sure the guests visiting the cats are respectful, kind, humane and considerate. They take the time to educate the public and each other. Their should be more rescues like this, to help educate and service wildlife. THANK YOU IN-SYNC!!!!!!

I was introduced to InSync by a co-worker and friend. I am so proud of the work they do. From a selffish perspective, nothing brings me more joy than receiving a video clip of one of their babies playing in the water, playing with one another and enjoying life! Of course, there are emails with sad stories as well about those who lost a fight to cancer, etc., but the team at InSync does everything they possibly can to make for a happy and healthy environment. I donate to 2 organizations, InSync and ASPCA. I sometimes feel guilty that my donations only go to animals, but they are the only creatures who give unconditional love and can't always help themselves.

The people who run and volunteer at In-Sync Exotics are amazing!! They care so much about the well-being of their rescued "babies". Their hearts break at a loss, and soar in happy moments as well. They really take their duties seriously, and I think that they should be commended for the work that they do.

I follow their progress and experiences on Facebook, and plan on visiting the site in the fall.
