Visited this place with my son yesterday. While I wish the enclosures were bigger and that they actually had room to run, the felines all looked very healthy and content. We got to witness one of the workers taking a photograph of one of the Tigers. He only came out of the tube where he was sleeping when he saw her. He rubbed up against the fence where she was standing and clearly adored her. There is definitely love here. Considering that most exotic felines owned by selfish humans as pets end up abused, malnourished, and/or killed, this is a good alternative. Its unfortunate the people thing they need to own these magnificent animals and Im grateful to places like these that give them a better life.
This place is quite unique. Not easy to find. The facility itself doesnt look well cared for, not quite like a zoou but the animals all appeared to get the best of care! All are large cats are rescued from a variety of situations circuses, individuals who thought buying a lion for their kids after seeing THE LION KING was a good idea, declared and so cant go back to the wild and they have a home at In-Sync until they die. And when they do eventually die, the owner has a wall with a photo of every lion, tiger, cheetah, panther, etc that they have cared for and various memorabilia of that cat. It is quite inspiring and youll never be closers to these large animals unless you happen to run into one in the wild.
I have been a volunteer at In-Sync for 11 years now, and can honestly say I have never seen such dedication to the health and well-being of animals as I witness every day at In-Sync. The needs of the animals are ALWAYS put first. The are provided with the best preventive health care, and when a cat does need medical assistance In-Sync goes to great lengths, utilizing specialists from literally all over the world for cutting-edge surgeries, cancer treatments, imaging and more. The enclosures are spacious, full of enriching toys and pools and always well cleaned. The volunteers and staff work so hard for these animals every day, and it shows!
After visiting for the Easter egg hunt event 2 years ago I knew this was an amazing place and I had to be a part of this organization. Ive been volunteering for over a year now and its been the best experience of my life. I love going in and chatting up with the cats, making sure they have a clean house and know the love we have for all of them. If you havent had a chance to visit then head out and meet these cats and the staff/volunteers that give their all to make these cats have a wonderful home.
I went yesterday with my best friend and we absolutely enjoyed ourselves! Only problem was not enough of the animals came out at 11:30 am! Some of them came out a little later and were a sight to behold! It was fun to see them respond to the handlers. One of the lions even roared on command!!! You guys are doing a great job of caring for these special animals. This is the next best thing to being free in the wilds for these creatures! Thanks, again for letting us visit Gods creatures!
I am a fairly new volunteer at In-Sync Exotics. I was hooked after I gave my husband a Feeding Tour for Christmas. Hearing the cats "singing" at dinnertime was so awesome. I knew right then that I wanted to become a volunteer. When I go through the gate for my day of work, all of the worries of the world are left outside. It really is all about the cats (and now 2 lemurs). I encourage everyone to visit these amazing animals and the people who care for them.
Its a pretty nice place I suppose. Not really much to do here unless the cats decide to roar at each other from the cages. Kind of felt bad for the big cats seeing how they were just trapped in cages and couldnt really do much but I suppose its better than what wouldve happen to them if they hadnt been brought here. Long story short, if you have nothing else to do on your Saturday you might as well come check the place out. Get some fresh air.
Something about being around big cats gives you this amazing feeling. Here I learned some of their stories some sad but all ended in love. Your able to get purity close, I went in the afternoon on Easter and most of them were napping but there was one tiger that wanted to play with the tiger mascot. Go visit and help support this local texas rescue. Ps they do have a volunteer program.
Please know that we are open Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday during the hot months of the year and Saturday and Sunday the rest of the year. We are NOT open Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday. We can not get Google to fix this problem and have asked them many times to correct our days and hours we are open. We open at 11:00, not 10:30. Please, PLEASE Google, fix this!!
Ive been volunteering here for over a year now and couldnt be more proud of this place. These cats are so loved and so well cared for. If you come for a visit and talk to a volunteer, you will see how much they love the cats by how they talk about the personalities of each one. Its truly amazing. Visit, consider making a donation, and spread the word. <3
What a cool experience this was! Driving up to it, I certainly didnt expect much, but it was so cool the variety of cats they had there. They also very clearly care about the animals and rescuing more when they can (more spots under construction, and when an animal passes, they put its name and info/pictures on a "Rainbow Bridge" wall.)
I didnt know this exotic animal facility existed until I went with my best friend. This isnt a zoo...it is a reserve for exotic animals, mainly tigers. It definitely warrants a drive over to see these gorgeous animals up close and personal. I will definitely go again!
Amazing things they are doing for these animals. Just be ready for loud noises, cats as well as the trains changing out cargo on the hill. Wear boots, there is plenty of horse manure and mud. They dont have concrete walk ways. Its all part of the experience to me :)
This place is doing a great job of picking up where selfish people left off. They are feeding, caring and cleaning up after the animals others left behind. I not only saw these great animals but saw their caregivers spraying and scrubbing their new habitats.
We had a great time! The big cats were beautiful and the keepers were friendly and extremely eager to answer questions. This facility needs our support. Over $10,000 a month is needed just to feed these gorgeous cats. Please find the time to visit In-Sync.

I had no idea this existed so close to our home! Wonderful fun experience for the child. Went with the school, so not sure if you can go on your own. But the experience was unique and wonderful. I wish those cats live out their life in relative peace.
