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 folds education into every experience we offer. Though tours are a popular option for visitors to experience the sanctuary, there are many other ways to connect and learn with us.
Animal care is our most sought-after volunteer position. We have one volunteer who drives from Ohio each month to complete her hours. Heather, who initially volunteered at a facility in Ohio, found Carolina Tiger Rescue about a year ago. She fell in love with our culture and values, so much so that she makes the seven-hour trip each month!
The interns are here, and they are rocking it! We extended our internship program for the duration of the summer this year. Our interns learn how to properly care for the residents and leave able to discuss the issues the animals face!
Summer camp is now in session! Camps are great educational opportunities for children. We offer full-week camps for elementary and middle school children. This year, we’ve added a high school camp after we could no longer deny the demand for it! Campers get to learn how to be a wildcat veterinarian, practice wildlife biology skills, and help some of the tigers express their creativity through painting!
