In-Sync Exotics founder Vicky Keahey has participated in a lion’s share of exotic animal rescues for almost 22 years, and the most recent one is no different.
The Wylie nonprofit now has even more mouths to feed — big mouths — that belong to nine tigers, seven female and two males, that were welcomed to the facility two weeks ago.
The nine tigers were voluntarily donated by Doug Terranova of Kaufman, owner of Animal Encounters, Inc. to the In-Sync facility located at 3430 Skyview Drive in Wylie.
The tigers surrendered by Terranova are typical of some of In-Sync’s past rescues — they were used in the entertainment industry including TV and film appearances, photoshoots, and circus performances.
In 2019, PETA revoked Terranova’s tiger handling license citing “multiple violations of the Animal Welfare Act,” reported peta.org.
