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.

International Tiger Day 2018

Join Carolina Tiger Rescue as we Celebrate
International Tiger Day 
July 29, 2018

International Tiger Day was first celebrated in 2010 in response to the shocking news that 97 percent of all wild tigers had disappeared in the last century, with only around 3,000 left alive in the wild.

Tigers are on the brink of extinction, and International Tiger Day aims to bring attention to this fact in order to halt their decline.

During the entire month of July, Carolina Tiger Rescue is celebrating International Tiger Day!  From raising awareness with feature stories to our Second Annual Summer Pawction to our Rescue to Refuge Match Day where we will be raising money to complete the second run for our Quarantine Building!

Please, join us as we celebrate tigers everywhere!
