Volunteer of the Month, February 2018
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.
Sally quickly became a wonderful asset to Carolina Tiger in just a short time. Serving on the boards of numerous animal rescues and also working as a nonprofit consultant, Sally brings a unique skill to the sanctuary. She has introduced three new sponsors to Carolina Tiger Rescue’s Black Tie & Tails Ball and connected us with many more. Her willingness to jump right in and help this past year has made a huge difference – setting the tone for an awesome sponsorship year! While Sally has moved back to England, she is still tracking down those last-minute sponsors and tying up loose ends. Sally’s willingness to share grant ideas, professional contacts, and advice has been greatly appreciated
Sally Newman has made a big impact in a short amount of time.
Volunteer Position: Board Member
Time at Carolina Tiger Rescue: Sally began volunteering with Carolina Tiger in May 2016.
Favorite Animal: “I love all cats, big and small. Of the Carolina Tiger Rescue cats, Anthony Leopard joined CTR soon after I got involved and he is a beautiful cat. I do also have a special adoration for the three-legged serval, Elvis and I have a canvas print of him in my living room I purchased at the last Black Tie & Tails Ball.”
Favorite Memory: “The first twilight tour I took. As the sun went down, the vultures swept down and the moon was faintly present in the sky. Listening to the lions chuff in those surroundings was all very exotic!”
