Where are we going today?

Kids who love animals love going to zoos, where they can learn all about them, but then you get a place that has a special story behind it - and this place is In Sync Exotics in Texas.

In Sync Exotics are dedicated to rescuing neglected, unwanted and abused exotic cats. This non-profit organization was founded by Vicky Keahey, who started the center with Tahoe, the cougar. From there, more and more creatures joined, and now families just like you can go and experience them too!

It's a wonderful experience for kids, because not only do they get to come face to face with some of the most beautiful creatures from around the world, but they get to learn the importance of caring for animals.

They can learn all about the stories of the animals, and their names, and really connect with them. 

So why not head out on one of their self-guided tours! On weekends, there are a number of volunteers to answer any questions, but you can just take your time and wander around the facility. Each of the stories of the cats are posted outside their cages, and information on the species can be found too.

So it's a complete learning experience for all!

If you want something a bit more special (if that's possible!), then why not look at the night tours! On a Sunday evening, kids over 7 years can spend around 90 minutes seeing the center in a whole new light.

There are feeding tours, as well as camps, and you can even celebrate your birthday party there! What better way to celebrate, especially knowing your birthday party fees will go towards such beautiful creatures.

An amazing experience in Texas, at In Sync Exotics!

Teachers corner

As part of their goal of educating the public, they offer scheduled group tours 7 days a week. Their knowledgeable guides will introduce you to the animals that call In-Sync home. By sharing the stories of these former pets, discarded entertainment animals, and formerly abused and neglected products of inhumane breeding facilities, it's their hope that visitors will make educated decisions that will one day reduce the number of exotic animals in captivity..

Any Top Tips?

A great experience is the campouts! There is pizza, snacks, breakfast, and of course camping! An amazing experience.

Need a little extra help?

Speak to staff if you have special needs that you might need assistance with.

Can I get one of those?

Proceeds from purchased gifts benefits the animals as it helps them acquire diet specific meals, medicines, vitamins and minerals and enrichment items! So why not pick up something to remind yourself of your visit, AND help care for the animals. .

More information

They are open until 8pm on the first Saturday of the month.

    I was absolutely astonished to hear that there was a Big Cat rescue so close to my home, and we went to visit for the first time in June.

    A lot (not all) of the animals had been mistreated, malnourished or neglected prior to moving to In-Sync, and a lot of the other rescues wouldn't take the animals. In-Sync did, and there are some absolutely amazing success stories about the animals.

The caretakers absolutely adore the animals and it shows. The animals are comfortable, have nice enclosures which are clean, and the animals are healthy. An absolute must-see in North Texas, and definitely worth a visit to their website or Facebook page to check them out.
