We drove 3 1/2 hours to visit the sanctuary as a birthday gift for our 8 year old daughter. We were a little nervous about coming this far for an animal sanctuary, not sure what exactly we'd find, but we were very happy we made the trip. The animals were clean and obviously well cared for, and the volunteers took the time to talk to the kids about what it is like to care for big cats. Sarah already had planned to be a wildlife biologist when she grows up. She's since amended her plans to include working for or running her own tiger sanctuary.
My entire family loves going to In-Sync Exotics. The employees and volunteers there are so warm and welcoming, and are always excited to share the stories of the animals they care for. It is not only an educational experience, but a look into the hearts of people who care for these cats. We are never disappointed when we go!
This is a small wonderful non profit that seems to rescue the big cats that few others can and do. I was impressed with the hard working people who run In-Sync. The tours they offer are wonderful, you even get the opportunity to be there when the cats get their dinner and what a treat that was for them and myself. This group doesn't flood your mailbox with mailers that cost big dollars, but only when the need is great and they have some good news to share or need to express.
The facility is very well kept and organized. The volunteers are extremely helpful and informative. Definitely a very worthy cause and if I lived closer I'd want to volunteer there.
This is one of the greatest places on earth, the people at insync are the best. They take care of the most beautiful big cats in the world, I have been to several so called sanctuaries and none stack up to insync exotics. If you ever want to give to those who give back, then this is one place you should give what ever you can.
I came to In Sync for the first time after being told by volunteer Wayne Washburn about the big cat birthday bash. As a volunteer for the North Texas Cat Rescue for over a year now, I am already a HUGE fan of animals! However, big cats like those at In Sync have always facinated me. Once I arrived at In Sync, I was amazed with how close you felt you could get to the cats, while being safe behind two separate sections of sturdy fencing. The cats look happy, relaxed, and healthy. I was so excited about my visit that I brought my mom for a visit when she came to Dallas from California last week. When we came, cougar "Kane" I believe his name is, was just rescued from Poetry, Texas, and was resting in the cool visitor's center. My eyes filled with tears as I was told by one of the volunteers that she didn't think he was going to make it the week before, as he was so weak he could barely raise his head. I knew then that I wanted to volunteer my time and what little extra money I have (school teacher salary doesn't go far!) to the rescue. I have since filled out a volunteer application and am going to visit with Chemyn next Saturday for an interview to join the volunteer staff! I couldn't be more thrilled to be a part of such an amazing sanctuary! It is sad that these type of facilities must exist, but since they must, I want to help! Thank you In Sync staff for all that you do, and I hope to be a part of the team soon! I will also be walking in the Tiger Trot in September for sure!
