Adopt an Animal

Adoption is a great way to give a personal touch to supporting Carolina Tiger Rescue. You will be able to form a very special and life-long relationship with a wonderful animal. Your assistance is much appreciated and will allow us to continue to care for these amazing animals.

The Annual Commitment for Adoptive Animals is as Follows:

  • Tigers, Lions, Cougars $1,200/Year
  • Caracals, servals, ocelots, and binturongs $900/Year
  • Kinkajous $600/Year

Adoption is an annual commitment for the lifetime of an individual animal. The cost of adoption is based on the size of the animal and reflects the typical cost of care. Adopted animals remain at Carolina Tiger Rescue in the care of the keeper staff. Adoptive parents are allowed unlimited visits with their animal (be sure to let a staff member know before entering the compound!) and will be trained to interact with their animal. Adoptive parents also receive a photo of their animal, an adoption certificate and receive periodic updates on their animal.

If you have questions about the Adoption Program or need assistance selecting your animal, please contact Susan King Cope or call (919) 542-4684.
