Firstly its sad to see big cats (tigers, lions, leopards etc) in cages but they are well cared for, beautiful to see and in far better places then they were rescued from. We visited on a Sunday in June and spent a couple of hours...More

This is a great way to see the big cats up close. Even closer than at a zoo. There quite a number of beautiful cats, including cheetahs. We can take our time and walk around. There are even times when you can watch the trainers...More

I enjoy taking friends that are visiting the area to this unique experience. Seeing the cats up close and personal is exciting. It is sad that the center has to exist but it feels good supporting such a great cause.

So many cats and just a wonderful sanctuary. The memorial wall is just beautiful and shows how much they care for these animals. I live far away but enjoy coming here when in Plano, TX visiting family.

Life in a cage is sad to see. These are rescue animals but conditions for the animals are not sufficient for their quality of life. As a visitor, gravel walkways are challenging for strollers and wheelchairs. Big crowd for Easter Egg hunt but not enough...More

Lots of big cats at this facility. Lions, tigers, leopards, bobcats, lynx, and more. Even a couple lemurs. A couple hour visit is plenty. Watch out for unhappy cats, they will spray! Overall a nice little place.

At In-sync, my toddler son and I were able to get a better view of big cats than any zoo we've ever been to at zoos and the like. Their entrance "price" is just a suggested donation, so you can pay more or less if...More

This place is just awesome. There is no glitz or glamour here. Raw muddy ground, all natural, huge cages filled with big cats. These animals are majestical to watch. My kids and the adults all enjoyed watching the big cat behaviors and interaction with one...More

Agree with the other responders. Not a large complex but extremely interesting. Give yourself an hour or 2 to see everything. The staff and volunteers are very helpful and give mini-tours.
