with Carolina Tiger Rescue. 

How to participate in the event

  • After the event: post 1 or more of the social media graphics to your personal Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook page.

In the post’s text area, use the hashtags provided (#PetTabbiesNotTigers, #ImpactNC, #CarolinaTigerRescue, #WellsFargo, #ESNC along with the website link:

In addition to the EarthShare contest, we are hosting a small, internal contest to see who can get the most points.  The individual from Wells Fargo with the most points will get a Carolina Tiger Rescue calendar.

Contest will run from Thursday, October 1 until Monday, October 5 at 5:00.  Carolina Tiger Rescue staff will count the points and announce a winner on Tuesday, October 6.

Because it is tricky to track social media engagement with each user’s varying privacy settings, it will really be up to everyone to make sure they have their settings appropriately set, if you want us to track your engagement.  If a post goes to just your friends, that is fine, but it will not count towards the internal competition.

How we will count:


  • Post – 1 point each time you post
  • Like – 1 pt for each like
  • Share – 2 pts for each share
  • Comment – 1 pt for each comment


  • Post – 1 point each time you post (do not share to your story)
  • Like – 1 pt for each like
  • Comment – 1 pt for each comment


  • Post – 1 point each time you tweet
  • Like – 1 pt for each like
  • Retweet – 2 pts for each retweet

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.

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.
