We are excited to welcome four new tigers to Carolina Tiger Rescue! 

The tigers are from a facility in the Southwest that needed to reduce its numbers. We don’t have many details about the animals’ pasts. There are three 11-year-old females named Yanaba, Yashira and Yakira and one 16-year-old male named Chico. 

In-Sync Exotics transported the cats for us, and they have moved safely into our quarantine building, the first stop for all new rescues. 

Our vet will perform the tigers’ medical exams in quarantine, and the animal care team will determine where the newest residents will best be suited to live in the sanctuary.
