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.

Public Tours

Twilight Tours

Coming out for a tour is a great way to learn more about the animals that call Carolina Tiger Recue home. We offer many different types of tours.  Public tours are great for adults and families. Twilight tours are for adults only (18 years of age and older). Tiger Tales are a perfect option if you want to bring out really young children. Find the tour that is right for you and enjoy a walk through the sanctuary.

For all tours, tickets must be purchased in advance.

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.

About Sally

  • 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!”
