The level of care the animals receive here is phenomenal. There have been so many miracles over the years, cats that have been rescued from unthinkable circumstances and are now healthy, happy cats. The staff, volunteers, and everyone there goes above and beyond, day after day, year after year.
I've been a volunteer with In-Sync since October 2010. I can honestly say this is the most rewarding work I've ever done. It is abundantly clear by the chuffs of the cats, their relaxed nature, & their playfulness that they are happy & well cared for by the many dedicated volunteers & staff. I've personally received dozens of compliments on how happy & healthy the cats are, & how clean our facilities are. We put our heart, soul, sweat, blood, & tears into In-Sync each & every day, & it's returned a million times over with each tiger chuff, each purr, every time the cat comes to say hello. Vicky, the owner, is absolutely amazing! She spends time with each of our 61 cats daily, & they all bend over backwards to please her. She is the Big Cat Whisperer!
i became a volunteer in January 2012. This place has truly changed the lives of many cats that had been neglected. In-Sync doesn't see those beautiful animals as cats. They are family! I have given many tours and i always ask the visitor to look at before and after pictures we have. All of the visitors always have the same response. That being that they can't believe the difference that ISE makes. I have witnessed many leaving with tears in their eyes and the gratitude in their hearts for people like ISE that take the time out of their lives to help these beautiful family members (cats). It is the most heart warming, fulfilling feeling ever. Love + In-Sync Exotics = Healthy, Happy Cats! Chuffs to you all!
I have been volunteering for this organization for 9 years, and it has changed my life. Watching cats who are terrified, hurting and sick, learn to enjoy life again and to trust people again is amazing. We have taken in so many cats with serious medical issues and geriatric cats, and shower them with the best medical care, excellent nutrition, enrichment and toys, and TONS of love. I am truly honored to work with this amazing group of people, who are dedicated to giving these cats the best possible lives that they can.
I have been involved with this organization for 8 years, and am still constantly amazed at the dedication of everyone who cares for these magnificent animals. Every penny that is donated goes directly to the care these animals deserve, including excellent veterinary care, quality diets and supplements, tons of enrichment, pools to play in, and so much more. These cats are loved like family, and it shows when you see the care and attention lavished on them by the staff and volunteers. The facility is highly rated by the USDA, American Sanctuary Association, and the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries.
It's a great facility with a wonderful mission. The staff, volunteers, fellow board members do an amazing job taking care of the amazing cats, nugget, and Katie. I hope people will help support the facility now and for years to come. This is an important cause. Please continue to support us in our efforts to educate the public about these amazing animals.
The dedication of the officers and staff of In-Sync are amazing. I started as an ordinary volunteer and have seen the dedication of all who volunteer and work at In-Sync. Much personal sacrifice on their part helps to insure that as many of the magnificent creatures subject to abysmal conditions are rescued.
I've been volunteering at InSync for over 4 years and a Board member for 2 years. InSync is a wonderful place! The owner Vicky, our Lead Keeper Mak, Board members and ALL the volunteers are the best to work. Everyone takes their duties seriously in making InSync home for these magnificient cats. The cats receive excellent care and LOTS of love!
The Wylie connection magazine wrote an article on Insync Exotics 3 1/2 years ago. I still have it. I wrote the volunteer coordinator an email and haven't regretted it a minute in my life ( okay maybe when I'm cleaning mohans poopy tub I'm cussing her out a little in my head :-) J/k). Vicky K. Has created a beautiful environment for these cats. The staff and volunteers do an amazing job keeping the area clean and healthy for the majestic cats. You can tell that everyone that help/works there is proud to be part of the organization and proud to be part of a great and important cause.
It has been a life changing experience and I hope it would continue to e for a long time to come. I'm excited to see the changes that are yet to come. It should be fun if they are anything like the past years. The place and people restore my faith in humanity and kindness. Thank you to all the staff, volunteers and board members.
I first heard that DFW had exotic cat sanctuaries by a news story about another local sanctuary. I tried for 4 months to contact them regarding being a volunteer with no success. A friend at work told me about In-Sync Exotics and provided me with their website. Within 15 minutes I had my first interview setup! That was impressive.
I remember my first few times out thinking that maybe I was making a mistake. Maybe I really didn't want to be around exotic cats. Maybe I wasn't cut out for this kind of work anymore. (I say anymore because its alot like the farmwork I grew up doing.) Fortunately, I didn't act on those thoughts and kept showing up and doing what I was assigned.
Now two years later, I have learned so much and done so many different things I can hardly believe those earlier thoughts crossed my mind. What I love so much about In-Sync Exotics is that the cats are #1; many of the people I work with are like family. All of the cats have become family to me.
Each and every day, dishes are washed, diets prepared, enclosures scooped and washed, waters changed, medicine dispensed and various other duties performed. It's like a 5 star hotel! The expectation is that the cats live in the cleanest environment we can provide and get the best food, water and companionship as well. Thats a tall order and it happens day in and day out all for the cats benefit.
I would strongly reccommend this organization to anyone that loves animals and is willing to work to make their lives better!
