Bursting at the Seams with Great Upcoming Events!

Silly Jasper!
Are you crazy about our exotic cats and Nugget? Want to learn more about their quirky and amusing behaviors? Well, you can with these three exciting events scheduled for this month -- you simply do not want to miss out on all the fun! Create some great memories by visiting our booth at the Taste of Dallas (and sampling all the fabulous food and drinks); attend our Summer Splash event (big cats and watermelons—need we say more?); or capture some amazing pictures of our animals engaged in summertime play (or sleep as in Amol’s case). Read on to learn more!

Taste of Dallas 

Prep your palate because the 26th Annual Taste of Dallas is going to be great (and by that we mean our mere appearance alone makes this event great, right?). A slice of life in North Texas, this event will feature some of the best chefs and restaurants around –taste some tasty treats to and enjoy some music, visual arts, kids’ activities, stuff to buy and more. It all awaits you here, along with some great information about our sanctuary! 

Okay, here’s the “skinny” on this event:

What: Taste of Dallas is Dallas’ most sought-after culinary event, featuring over 60 restaurants and showcasing Dallas’ top chefs. 
Where: Taste of Dallas is held in Fair Park, located in the heart of Dallas. 277 acres of museums, attractions, history, art and performance. 3600 Grand Avenue, Dallas, TX 75210
When: July 13-15, 2012 Hours: Friday: 4 p.m. to 11 p.m. Saturday: 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Sunday: 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. 

Most importantly, we will be located in the Centennial Hall Building, so please stop by and say "hi" to our hard working crew manning the In-Sync Exotics' booth! 

Summer Splash 

If you enjoyed last years' Pumpkin Bash event, watching our tigers and the lions tearing into their pumpkins, then you're going to love Summer Splash! Come out and watch our cats enjoy some cool watermelons on Saturday, July 21, 2012 starting at 11:00am. To view or print our flier for this event, please click HERE

Our Wild Cats are Ready for Their Close-up Shots! 

In-Sync Exotics is excited to offer professional and amateur photographers the opportunity to photograph our exotics wild animals in a natural and semi-natural background. Capture those special moments as our wild ones splash in their pools, play with their toys on the playground, or just coming up to greet you, up close and personal! We cater to small groups with only 15 reservations available for the spring, summer, and fall photo shoots; however, we must have at least 10 people scheduled in order for the private photography session to take place. Our spring photo session is scheduled for July 29, 2012 from 7:30am – 11:30am. 

What to expect during your photography shoot 

All participants will receive an orientation prior to breaking out into small groups with two volunteer animal caretakers per group. Our goal is to allow you to photograph our animals without the double barrier hindering your view. If you have professional photo equipment you can focus past single cage wire if the cat is far enough from the side of the enclosure. If you are using amateur photo equipment, you may have single cage wire in some of your photographs. Our animals always come first—we do not force our animals to perform, but allow them to act naturally in their own environment. If one of our cats is not in the mood to be photographed (for instance hiding in her den), then the small group will have to move on to the next animal. Some of our smaller cats can be rather shy and elusive, so we cannot guarantee you will get a great shot of all our wild ones, but we will give it our best effort to quietly encourage our shy ones to come out and greet you! 

This event is by appointment only. Please email Lynne for info on availability, waiting list, payment options and details about the shoot. The cost for the private photo shoot tour is $100 per photographer. Prices and terms subject to change without notice. You do not want to miss this opportunity to take some fabulous photos of our animals! With the weather a little cooler in the mornings, we feel confident that you will walk away with some of the most amazing pictures of our animals waking up and playing! So sign up today and we’ll see you on July 29, 2012! To view or print our flier for this event, please click HERE
