Daniel joined Carolina Tiger Rescue about a year ago and has become an integral part of our family since then. He has an unshakable commitment to the animals and never hesitates to do what’s needed or what’s asked of him. He always has a smile on his face and takes on each task with enthusiasm. His joy is contagious, and we are so happy to have him as a volunteer. Please join us in congratulating Daniel!

About Daniel 

  • Volunteer Position: Construction
  • Time at Carolina Tiger Rescue: Daniel joined the Carolina Tiger Family in September 2016.
  • Favorite Animal: “My favorite animal is Saber Tiger for several reasons. I love his personality and the dynamic he and Shenandoah share. It’s hard to say my favorite experience at the tiger rescue because every single time I’m out there it is such an amazing feeling. It really uplifts my spirit no matter what. No matter how my week has been I know when I come out there I get to spend time with some amazing people and amazing animals. No matter how difficult the task is I always give it a hundred percent.”
  • Favorite Memory: “I remember one time I was outside doing yard work and it was raining so hard a staff member came and asked me if I would like to come up to the house to get dry and I simply said no, I’m fine. If the animals are out here, I’m out here too. The animals depend on us. They trust us, and I would never do anything to jeopardize that because I know how that feels to lose trust in somebody you depend on. I know what it’s like to have to depend on other people.”

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.
