My girls and I had a wonderful time visiting In-sync Exotics. We were able to see the cats up close and some where even having fun out on their playground. The volunteers are knowledgeable about the cats and told us stories about them and answered any question we had. The facility is clean and it is obvious that the staff/volunteers care deeply about the cats who are now in their happy forever home.

"LOVE" it's all about "love" which is very evident at In-Sync. From the hard working volunteers to the cats favorite owner & care taker Vicky! She glows when she speaks about her cats.The facility is always clean,everyone is always working & will gladly tell you stories on each beloved cat............even their horse & the goats LOL! It's shaded well,very secure & a thrill to see these animals come from nothing blossom into a beautiful thriving animal.I thank my lucky stars I live close enough to go see them & especially knowing there are people like Vicky & staff that want nothing more than to make these cats lives safe & taken care of. God bless them.

If our health care system could take as good a care of us the way Vicky & all the volunteers at In-Sync take care of all these beautiful cats........how great that would be! In-Sync is the perfect forever home for these animals they care for. I've never had any bad experience while visiting.Everyone is very knowledgeable if you have a question.& very friendly. You can absolutely tell there is a connection between the care takers & the cats. Their care & comfort come first with the workers & boy do they work!!!! Thank you ALL that work there for making In-Sync a caring & loving home.

All of the people who work/volunteer at In-Sync treat these beautiful creatures like they are family. Each cat is more regal than the next, and more deserving of the wonderful treatment and lifestyles that they are living.

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.

In-Sync Exotics is an amazing sanctuary for big cats. Every time I visit I am amazed by the care that they provide for these beautiful creatures. Every cat, no matter what age or health, is given so much love and compassionate consideration that it is truly amazing. The staff and volunteers are completely dedicated to the well being of the cats. They go above and beyond to make sure that the cats receive enrichment, proper nutrition, expert medical care, clean conditions, and plenty of room to roam in large enclosures (many that have water features). I do my best to share their story with anyone that will listen, and often send friends and family out to visit the sanctuary if they haven't been before. I honestly love In-Sync Exotics and the work they do. I hope to have time in the future to become a volunteer for them.

In-Sync is one of my favorite and one of the most fascinating places I have had the pleasure to visit... Seeing these beautiful Exotic Cats up close and personal is always so exciting for me as I have never been that close to a real live Lion or Tiger before in my life... I am in awe at the selfless work these people do to care for these beautiful exotic cats, the time and the attention given to their well-being is more than amazing. I love to visit In-Sync because I always come away with a sense of complete satisfaction in appreciating the beauty of every single exotic cat in this rescue facility and also knowing that there are loving and caring people out there who give so much of their time and their talent to ensure the best of care goes out to each and everyone of the cats in the In-Sync family. They even take the time to remember the ones that have crossed over the Rainbow Bridge, a beautiful memorial wall with pictures, names and even flowers... It's evident these people really care and are God inspired!

I first learned about ISE at one of their booths at a festival. They gave me great info about how they rescue big cats, and I was very interested in supporting them. Soon after I began following on Facebook, and it was then that I really began to see what ALL they do for these beautiful cats! I saw pictures and stories of how each cat was rescued and how many were neglected, and I also learned how an incurable illness can spread amongst them and even kill some of them. I saw a team of wonderful volunteers pull together to help get funding and spread awareness to help these magnificent animals! I've also seen them grow, and I hope everyone will continue to support them by donating money because they depend on us, and these cats deserve the best life!! I live about an hour away, but I've been to the facility twice to see the cats in person. They snuggle right up into your heart!! I hope everyone will donate, and encourage everyone to go see the cats up close. They are amazing!!!!

All you have to do is visit their Facebook page to read stories of their rescues, see the before and after pictures... Love, love, love. And to see the cats up close is absolutely breathtaking.

We have yet to visit In-Sync, but we can't wait to go. I met one of their employees at a local library one day and she was so nice to take time to speak with my young daughter about their sanctuary. Their Facebook page is wonderful and it's so nice to see updates about what is happening at the sanctuary. I'm so glad they are helping these majestic big cats. We are definitely planning a spring visit, once the weather warms up just a bit! I can't wait! I wish we had enough money to donate money to their organization, but maybe someday when our finances are better.

Although I've not been there yet (hoping to visit next year), it appears to be a very well run sanctuary for the animals. All seem healthy, happy and clean. Animals are frequently seen enjoying their enrichment, and the volunteers appear dedicated. Thank you In Sync. You're all so awesome!

I was there over the Memorial Day weekend with a group of girls who love cats. We were impressed by the enclosures, the recovery stories, and the staff. We had one person with us that really wanted to see the white tiger. It was a hot day and she was in her sleeping area to stay cool. A staff member happened to be walking by with an extra piece of meat from feeding other cats and she took the time to get her out and tell us about her story. Something I will always remember. The lady working the office that day was very patient with the two little girls with us. I will go back the next time I visit. I can see why my Aunt Cindy lived this place also.

This place is amazing! The animals are so well cared for, and in any cases nursed back from almost certain death to active, energetic healthy animals that show just how truly majestic big cats can be. Great place to visit and the staff and volunteers are so open to sharing their stories and information. Can't wait to get back again!

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.
