Carolina Tiger Rescue
The nonprofit wildlife sanctuary has a mission of saving and protecting wildcats in captivity and in the wild, through providing a lifelong sanctuary to the wildlife, educating the public, conducting non-invasive research and more. The Carolina Tiger Rescue is working towards the day that: wildcats are not owned by individuals as pets, wildcats are not used for entertainment purposes, no trade exists for wildcats or their parts, all wildcats prosper in sustainable, native habitats.
The rescue is home to a variety of wildcats and hosts guided tours, events, field trips, and more. To view the animals, you must attend a guided tour. Tickets must be reserved online.
Have a passion for helping animals? There are plenty of opportunities to adopt an animal, volunteer, become a member, or make donations to the tiger rescue. Meet the animals and look into these opportunities on the Carolina Tiger Rescue website!
