Explore: Lions, and Tigers, and a Trail (Oh My!)

Come join us for a day of tigers, lions, and a trail on

Saturday, June 21 at In-Sync Exotics

After years of seeing mistreated, abused , and neglected felines coming through her veterinary office; Vicky Keahey established the non-profit In-Sync Exotics in 2000 . With only a little capital and a passion to seek long term care for these cats , she slowly started to build a sanctuary for these majestic creatures in Wylie, Texas. Today In-Sync Exotics has blossomed to an occupancy of over 50 residents thanks to generous donations from visitors like you .

COST: Tours of this facility are only $12 (Cash/Check/Charge) and go directly towards the upkeep of the facility & animals since the vast majority of the workers are volunteers. There are refreshments/food available on site.

OPTIONAL HIKE: For those interested , after our tour we will be taking a hike at Lake Lavon. I haven't been on this path personally, but have read high reviews from fellow hikers regarding the scenic view. Here is the map of InSync to East Fork Park.

EXTRA OPTIONAL DINNER: Since we'll probably be hungry after this, we can hit up Babe's Chicken for some great southern style chicken on the way back.

    I sprained my knee, so I'll be on crutches for the next week or so and doubt that I'll be able to do this. Hope you guys have fun! Pet the kittens for me :)

      It is true everything is bigger in Texas. Even the kittens are supersized. \@o@/

      Hope you recover soon Gisella. :-)...

    I was really looking forward to this, but unfortunately got in a car accident tonight and now my car is not driveable for the the moment. Will there be another meetup like this?

    June 19

    • Omar A.

      Sorry to hear about your accident! I do this meetup every year or so, as it's one of my favorites. So yeah, I'll be reposting it but it won't be for a while as I try to space them out.

      June 20

    • Karen T.

      Thanks for the feedback. Unfortunately, I can already tell something is wrong with my left upper arm and lower back. But hopefully I will be ok by the next meetup. Have fun!

    Is anybody carpooling for this event?

    1 · June 19

    • Omar A.

      I'm actually going to be posting a carpooling location tonight, as it 'll make parking easier at in syncs and the hiking location

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
