Wildlife should be in the Wild



  • 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.

Carolina Tiger Rescue goes live on Facebook every Wednesday morning at 9:30 AM! We recently visited Roscoe Tiger who created two beautiful “pawcassos” for us. Keeper LA also showed us how she uses operant conditioning to help Roscoe with his anxiety. While Roscoe is normally a shy tiger, he did GREAT! 


We shared pictures of Rajah and his unique story on our platforms to celebrate his sweet sixteen.

Rajah is a favorite of many who visit the sanctuary. He is known for walking along the fence of his enclosure with a tour group and greeting guests with chuffles. He is a laid back tiger who enjoys hanging out in the shade, in his pool, and on top of his den box. He also loves enrichment! He will rub on and destroy a scented box or paint beautiful “Pawcassos”. He’s been with us for the majority of his life, and we are so happy to be his forever home!
