I absolutely love Insync Exotics!!! The cats are their concern and they only do what is best for them. The enrichment exercises are thoughtful - the cats love them and we love to watch them. It is amazing to see the cats that come here and how much they have changed since making Insync Exotics their home. The best rescue organization I have ever seen!!
We bring our kids (6 & 3) here often. It is a wonderful place with wonderful volunteers that provides a great learning experience to our children. The really love these animals and do everything possible for them. Our son cannot wait to volunteer when he gets older!
Our daughter found In-Sync not to long after she relocated to Texas, and of course her Father and I had our reservations about her becoming a volunteer there. But even after our first visit to this magical habitat, we were able to breathe much easier due to the fact that we were able to see for ourselves how strictly Vicki's safety measures were enforced- without deviation, and that the volunteers are REQUIRED to act accordingly. No fuzzy instruction here! Vicki's concern for her volunteers's only rival that of her concern and passion for her children, her big kitties- as we so lovingly refer to them as.
Now a year or so down the road, we look forward to seeing our 'other' children almost (wink-wink) as much as we do our daughter when we come to town to visit! It is truly an awe inspiring time! If you are anywhere near this amazing facility, we whole heartily encourage you drop by and say hello! Having a rotten day, week? I guarantee, after a stroll through the amazing grounds and a few heart to hearts with some of their more than willing to listen residents, your outlook will be changed for the better! But,
CAUTION! This magical habitat is highly addictive! You may find yourself looking for our leader, Vicki and inquiring about how YOU can become one of the highly esteemed volunteers that have found that inner peace that only comes with the satisfaction of knowing that YOU are doing your part to help care for these now oh-so-lucky-cats who have found such a wonderful, loving home at In-Sync! And like our daughter, you too will be heard saying, "I've found my happy place!"
In-Sync is an experience of the heart. These exotic animals will walk into your heart and become part of your soul. You cannot ignore them, their eyes tell you stories that cannot be written, but felt. They are unwilling victims of humanity's need for control and power. Vicki and In-Sync give these animals a last chance to live in a truly caring environment. They will experience human love many times for the first time in their lives . . . . This group is truly dedicated and will move mountains to care for these amazing creatures, 24/7/365 days a year!! ! I am a prior Board member from many years ago . . .
I first came to In-Sync over 10 years ago. I Found out about it by word of mouth. Could not believe the passion Vicky has for these cats. And sadly the stories of each and every cat that was at that facility at that time. I came to realize the word Man-kind was an oxymoran. Most of those at the facility at that time and since would be dead if it were not for her rescue efforts She literally lives, eats and sleeps (with one ear on a baby type monitors in the cage area ) cats. She did not have a large volunteer base then but as the facility grew the volunteers came as word of mouth and the internet presence grew. These volunteers share the passion and they see it in Vicky. All rescue facilities have merit, but this one has the heart of gold stolen from it's founder.
In-Sync has survived because Vicky would not say no to the cats,
she has fought long and hard for it's existence. Bless her and her troups of volunteers, donors and supporters.
We visited for the first time for the Easter event after hearing from friends that it was a great place for the grands. It was a great experience. A volunteer mentioned "here comes moma " as the animals were a little agitated bythe great number of people present. I rescue feral cats and was very pleased to see her calming influence on them. I could see one tiger waiting his turn for her and he was so excited! The animals were well taken care of and happy if not a little apprehensive at so much dinner looking at them...lol! Sorry I don't. Know "Moma 's name!!! Great place!
I found out about In-Sync back in February this year and surprised my mom and daughter with a visit, and we have been back multiple times since then. We absolutely love this place!! The staff is always very helpful and friendly and the animals are very well cared for. The love and care that they are given is apparent in so many ways. Their homes and habitats are always clean and constantly being attended to. The staff takes every percaution to remain safe at all times and take the same percautions with the visitors and the cats. I can't think them enough for sharing this amazing sanctuary with us!
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!
