Carolina Tiger Rescue, North Carolina’s only federally and GFAS (Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries)-accredited big cat sanctuary, worked with the U.S. Department of Justice and several other accredited sanctuaries to execute a large-scale rescue of 68 endangered big cats at Tiger King Park in Thackerville, Oklahoma last week.
Carolina Tiger Rescue is excited to announce the arrival of their latest rescue, Daisy Coatimundi. Daisy arrived on May 18, and is already adjusting to her new life at the GFAS-accredited sanctuary.

Here’s what you need to know:
- The contact person for marketing and public relations is Communications Director Louise Orr, 919-542-4684 x 3019.
- Carolina Tiger is open daily from 8:30am to 5:00pm. We are closed only on Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day.
- Carolina Tiger does not permit the media to be present during a rescue/receiving new animals. This is one of the most dangerous times for a sanctuary, so only staff members are present. It is also an anxious time for the animals being transferred. They may have just completed a long journey in a cramped space and their whole world has changed within hours.
- New animals are immediately unloaded into quarantine, where they will undergo medical exams and evaluation. Quarantine typically lasts 3 to 4 weeks. It is also during this time that we assess each animal’s behavior and personality to determine whether they will be placed on the tour route or elsewhere in the sanctuary. During this time we do not permit anyone other than staff to visit the new animals.
- We do have a professional photographer on staff, and we take pictures and video during rescues and quarantine. Reporters may request pictures and video during these times and we will be happy to supply them.
- Carolina Tiger has numerous suggestions for story ideas.
