Carolina Tiger Rescue is a 501(c)3 nonprofit wildlife sanctuary whose mission is saving and protecting wild cats in captivity and in the wild.
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!

- 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.”
