Tim Farmer was shocked when his name was called. He had no idea he was up for 2019 Volunteer of the Year. It took a small family conspiracy and some white lies about a vacation that needed rescheduling to get Tim to the Family Picnic, as he had plans to be out of town. “I say every year, it will get harder to pick the volunteer of the year because they always outdo themselves.” says Volunteer Coordinator, Maryssa Hill. “But every year, when it comes time to do nominations, staff always seems to be on the same page.”

Tim is an incredible volunteer and a wonderful ambassador for Carolina Tiger Rescue. We could not be more proud to honor him.

With over 160 volunteers, who donated a generous 20,000 volunteer hours to the animals at the sanctuary, it was certainly no easy task to pick just one person. Other 2019 Award Winners include: Elizabeth Henderson – Gift Shop, Heather Earp – Tour Guide, Katrina Greely – Tour Guide – Fire Ant Killer, Taniya Wright – Tour Guide – Rookie of the Year, Kalyn Walker – Animal Care, Andrew Freeman – Animal Care, Sam Kern – Animal Care, Chip Weisert – Construction, Susan and Mitch Haber  – Marketing, Shirley and Dexter Horton – Adoptive Parent

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.
