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.

Lindsey Lewis

Lindsey does an excellent job of helping throughout several areas of Carolina Tiger Rescue. She makes a point to sign up for Animal Care shifts right before inclement weather or before the holidays because she knows those are times when the keepers likely need help the most. She is always willing to stay past the end of her shift if the keepers are crunched for time and doesn’t shy away from any task. We appreciate Lindsey’s dedication and greatly enjoy having her as a volunteer.  Please help us congratulate Lindsey and thank her for her time and dedication!

About Jan 

  • Volunteer Position: Animal Care
  • Time at Carolina Tiger Rescue: Lindsey began in October 2018 and has logged nearly 250 hours
  • Favorite Animal: “It’s so hard to pick a favorite animal. I love them all, especially after getting to know all their personalities one on one. Madonna is my girl though -she’s so sassy. Yanaba’s got spunk, and who doesn’t love Beau and Anthony?!”
  • Favorite Memory: “My most memorable experience would have to be getting to witness a knockdown on Emerson tiger. Staff really does a great job of making sure every event is a learning experience and it’s something I’ll remember forever.”
