Wildlife should be in the Wild

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.

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.

 

Carolina Tiger Rescue was invited to 100 Women Who Give a Hoot‘s quarterly giving night earlier this month. The organization supports local nonprofits, and its giving night brought together three nonprofits for a chance to win $28,000. 

Our volunteer coordinator Maryssa Hill presented on behalf of Carolina Tiger Rescue

Raleigh Rescue Mission, a nonprofit dedicated to ending homelessness in the Triangle, came away with the top prize. Carolina Tiger Rescue made many connections that night and was able to spread the word about the plight of wild cats in captivity and in the wild and ways to help. While we shared several rescue stories during the five-minute presentation, Maryssa primarily spoke about our need for an X-ray machine.

Caprichio Tiger, a former cub pet who likely suffers from metabolic bone disease, which is a bone deformity due to poor nutrition early in life, was a major talking point for this cause in particular. His story, along with others, moved some of 100 Women’s members to donate, even though Carolina Tiger did not win. 

Carolina Tiger was glad to be part of a great night in the community!
