Wildlife should be in the Wild



  • We believe the ideal home for wildlife is in the wild.
  • We believe it is critical to conserve their native habitats.
  • We believe wild animals should not be kept as pets.
  • We believe captive breeding should ONLY be done in accordance with Species Survival plans.
  • We believe all wild animals, both captive and in their native habitats, deserve to be treated with respect and not exploited for entertainment and commercial purposes.

Public Tours

Twilight Tours

Coming out for a tour is a great way to learn more about the animals that call Carolina Tiger Recue home. We offer many different types of tours.  Public tours are great for adults and families. Twilight tours are for adults only (18 years of age and older). Tiger Tales are a perfect option if you want to bring out really young children. Find the tour that is right for you and enjoy a walk through the sanctuary.

For all tours, tickets must be purchased in advance.

As the frosty embrace of winter settles in, Carolina Tiger Rescue’s furry residents eagerly await the warmth and comfort your generosity can provide. Introducing our Winter Wishlist – a collection of essential items ensuring that winter projects are seamlessly completed, and our majestic cats, along with their fellow animal companions, stay snug in the chillier months. Your support directly impacts the work of our incredible keepers, dedicated site team, and our volunteers. By contributing to the Winter Wishlist, you become a vital part of creating a haven where these rescued animals can thrive amidst North Carolina’s winter wonderland, creating a cozy and safe haven. Your donations, like the warmth they bring, are a beacon of compassion that resonates throughout our sanctuary. Let’s join paws and make this winter a season of shared warmth and care!
