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.

Carolina Tiger Rescue is excited to offer a program only for home school students! This program is STEM-based and teaches students to use the Design Process as they learn about and design enrichment prototypes for the animals. The Home School Enrichment Design Program will take place over 4 consecutive Tuesday mornings. The students will take a tour of the sanctuary, meet many of our animals, and then get an in-depth look at one of three species of their choice. Through this in-depth look, they will learn about their natural history as well as the particular personalities of the individuals and design enrichment for the animal. They will, over the weeks, develop a prototype for their design, talk with the keepers, and teach others about their project. It is a great way to meet your science standards in a new and different way!
This program is for 4th and 5th grade home school students.
