Make a Gift Through Your Estate and Become a Sanctuary Steward!

Donors, members, volunteers, adoptive parents, and friends who have included Carolina Tiger Rescue in their estate plans are invited to join our Sanctuary Stewards group. By naming you as a Sanctuary Steward, Carolina Tiger acknowledges your thoughtful planning for the future of the animals that have found a forever home at Carolina Tiger Rescue. Thank you!

We are deeply grateful to those who have made arrangements to continue their support through bequests and gifts through trusts, retirement plans, or life insurance policies – these gifts help to ensure a safe, healthy, secure future for the animals.  

As a Sanctuary Steward, you will receive invitations to our special donor events, an annual calendar, and public recognition for your meaningful gift. Of course, you may remain anonymous, if you wish.

Sanctuary Stewards help Carolina Tiger Rescue in two important ways: through your own gift and by inspiring others to take advantage of these special ways of helping Carolina Tiger Rescue fulfill our mission to save and protect wild cats in captivity and in the wild.

For information on including Carolina Tiger Rescue as a beneficiary of your estate, please contact Heidi Zangara.

Wildlife should be in the Wild

Rescue

Education

  • 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.

Virtual Field Trips

Education is key to our mission.  We enjoy teaching “kids” of all ages!  Our field trips, both virtual and onsite, are ideal for groups of kids.  Our “Kid for a Day” Adult Camp provides a unique learning opportunity while allowing adults to channel their inner child.  While all of these opportunities are structured differently, in the end we want everyone to walk away knowing more about the animals we care for and what they can do to help protect them.
