The Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries (GFAS), awarded Accredited status to Carolina Tiger Rescue. Achieving GFAS Accreditation means that Carolina Tiger Rescue meets the criteria of a true sanctuary and is providing humane and responsible care of the animals. To be awarded Accreditation status, an organization must meet GFAS’s rigorous and peer-reviewed animal care standards and also adhere to a demanding set of ethical and operational principles. The accreditation status provides a clear and trusted means for the public, donors and grantors to recognize Carolina Tiger Rescue as an exceptional sanctuary.
We are excited to be welcoming seven new servals into the family, just in time for the holidays! The servals will be making their way to the sanctuary on Tuesday, just in time to celebrate their first Thanksgiving with the rescue. The cats will be welcomed by Carolina Tiger Rescue staff when they arrive and will be given plenty of time to get acclimated.
Winter is fast approaching! As the cats start to grow their long winter coats, the staff at Carolina Tiger Rescue also preps for the winter. We absolutely can’t do this without your help. Could you look through our wishlist and select a few items to gift our animals? Some of the items are more obvious than others, but all of these items are necessary for keeping the animals in top shape through icy blasts and possible power outages. All Amazon wishlist items get delivered directly to our door, which makes giving easy. Be sure to include you name so we can send you an end-of-year tax receipt.
Fall 2019 Pawprint Newsletter- We have exciting news! We are officially Global Federation of Animals Sanctuaries (GFAS) accredited, making us just one of two big cat rescues on the east coast to receive the honor. Read more about our 45th year celebration, meet Ranger Bobcat, and learn about Tio Tiger’s toe troubles.
Learn why travelling wild animal shows, circuses and magic shows exploit wild animals. Bright lights, loud crowds and flaming hoops are scary for wild animals, but trainers force tigers, lions, elephants and other animals to do tricks through fear and starvation.
Have you noticed that Quarantine is under construction? We are expanding to add outdoor access, which greatly improves the quality of care animals receive, as well as allowing for more animals to be housed at a time. Quarantine is our welcome mat to the sanctuary, where new residents receive much-needed vet care, get their vaccines and get acquainted with their new homes.
