Adopt a Wild Cat

Create a personal connection with an amazing wild animal when you adopt an animal at Carolina Tiger Rescue.

With your symbolic adoption, you will be able to form a very special and life-long relationship with a wonderful animal.  Your generosity is much appreciated and will allow us to continue to care for these beautiful animals. 

The annual commitment to adopt an animal is as follows:

Large Cats

Tigers, Lions, Cougars, Leopards

This rate will increase to $1,500/yr. as of January 15, 2021.

Small Cats

Caracals, Servals, Ocelots, Bobcats

This rate will increase to $1,200/yr. as of January 15, 2021.

Other Animals

Kinkajous and Coatimundis

This rate will increase to $900/yr. as of January 15, 2021.

Adoption is an annual commitment for the lifetime of an individual animal. The cost of adoption is based on the size of the animal and reflects the typical cost of care. Adopted animals remain at Carolina Tiger Rescue in the care of the keeper staff. After an in-depth orientation, adoptive parents are allowed to visit their animal and will be trained to interact safely with their animal. Adoptive parents also receive a photo of their animal, an adoption certificate, and periodic updates on their animal.

We encourage you to call or email for details to be sure the Adoption Program is a good fit with what you have in mind before you send an adoption donation. For questions about the Adoption Program, including information to help select your animal, please contact Heidi Zangara or call (919) 542-4684 x 3010.
