The Limelight: In-Sync Exotics Wildlife Rescue and Education Center

Believing that one person on a mission can make a difference and help better our world, Vicky Keahey, a veterinary technician established a non-profit organization that rescues and protects stray and unwanted exotic felines. In response to this past week’s news coverage on bobcat sightings in downtown Dallas and residential areas near the Addison Airport, I thought it be it would rather timely to feature today’s limelight on In-Sync Exotics Wildlife Rescue and Education Center, a non-profit organization dedicated to caring for rescued exotic felines and sharing Vicky’s rescue experiences with others.



With new housing developments and new commercial centers sprouting every which way, many bobcats are being displaced from their homes and are wandering into residential neighborhoods. Since bobcats don’t prefer to interact with humans, it’s more unnerving than hazardous…as long as you keep your distance from these stray cats.

Because exotic cats are not your average house cat, Vicky did her homework by working closely with the Texas Parks and Wildlife department to learn the proper care, maintenance and embraced the need to form mutual love and respect between her and her rescued felines. The organization proudly stands behind its mission to rescue mistreated exotic cats and provide them with a lifetime of excellent care while also providing education to the public and its residential communities about their much needed maintenance and protection. In-Sync Exotics continues fundraising efforts to support the rescued felines and to further education through its community outreach.

In-Sync Exotics is run almost entirely on volunteer labor and assistance is always welcome. If you would like to volunteer your time to help these magnificent animals, please contact volunteer coordinator, Chemyn Reaney at creaney@insyncexotics.com. You must be at 13 years of age with parental consent and adult supervision to volunteer.

Fulfilling their mission and goals to rescue mistreated and/or displaced cats and provide them with a lifetime of excellent care is an expensive labor of love. It costs $91,000 a year to feed the animals and another $15,000 for veterinarian care in addition to the expenses for utilities, enrichment, equipment and supplies.
