Jan Dye 

Jan has been a wonderful addition to our Tour Guide Team. She was excited to begin sharing her passion for the animals, and her enthusiasm and excitement haven’t waivered since! Her quick wit and sense of humor always keep guests entertained, and her ever-present love for the animals guarantees they’ll part with a deeper appreciation for our resident carnivores. Jan is a wealth of knowledge and one of the most genuine people around. Please help us congratulate Jan and thank her for her time and dedication!

 

Jan’s favorite animal was Toby Bobcat 

About Jan 

  • Volunteer Position: Tour Guide

  • Time at Carolina Tiger Rescue: Jan began volunteering in July of 2016 and has contributed nearly 150 hours since she started! 

  • Favorite Animal: “Each animal at Carolina Tiger has a special place in my heart, but somehow Toby Bobcat makes me smile the most whenever I visit him. He’s just adorable.”

  • Favorite Memory: “I love to chuffle with the tigers and listen to the lions roar at each other as sunset approaches. But my favorite thing is to hear purring coming from a big old cougar when he gets a treat. That’s just awesome. Thanks for letting me volunteer at the CTR. Great beasts, great volunteers and staff, and wonderful visitors. It’s never boring!”
