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.

 

First Twilight on April 6th was a wonderful evening!

Nearly 100 of Carolina Tiger Rescue’s supporters came together on a beautiful spring evening to celebrate our 45th anniversary and learn more about our exciting plans for the future of the rescue.

Executive Director Pam Fulk announced our plans to move into a campaign that will enable us to build a new education and visitor center.  We need room to grow!  Our new space will allow us to educate more visitors, interns, school groups, and kids in summer camp about our animals as well as promote conservation and advocacy on the behalf of the wild cats kept in captivity and those remaining in the wild.

We are so excited to take this next step and look forward to the chance to let you know more.  Please get in touch with Pam Fulk, Executive Director, if you have any questions or would like to find out how you can help.  PamFulk@CarolinaTigerRescue.org

 

Pam Fulk talks to the crowd about upcoming plans.

 

Guests got a sneak peek at early renderings of what the building could look like while enjoying hors d’oeuvres and a magnificent 45th Anniversary cake donated by Maxie B’s Bakery.  Following the short presentation, guests were treated to tours where one of the animals received a special “cake” of their own.  It was an exciting and delicious evening for all, whether on two feet or four.

We are so excited to take this next step and look forward to the chance to let you know more.  Please get in touch if you have any questions or would like to find out how you can help.

Moki has torn apart her enrichment “cake” and is enjoying the meat inside the boxes.

Humans enjoyed the ACTUAL cake, made to look like a moon and cherry blossoms, made by Maxie B’s Bakery.

Thank you again for supporting the animals. They wouldn’t be thriving without you!

Wildlife should be in the Wild

Rescue

Education

  • 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.

Virtual Field Trips

Education is key to our mission.  We enjoy teaching “kids” of all ages!  Our field trips, both virtual and onsite, are ideal for groups of kids.  Our “Kid for a Day” Adult Camp provides a unique learning opportunity while allowing adults to channel their inner child.  While all of these opportunities are structured differently, in the end we want everyone to walk away knowing more about the animals we care for and what they can do to help protect them.
