Have you ever wondered what it takes to care for more than 50 exotic carnivores? Are you interested in learning about the challenges and dangers that wild cats face under private ownership and in their natural environments? Do you want to know how you can help? Then join Carolina Tiger Rescue for a tour you won't soon forget. On a tour led by trained volunteer tour guides, you'll take a safe, half-mile walk through the Carolina Tiger sanctuary and be within 6 feet of beautiful small cats such as caracals, ocelots, and cougars; and within 3 feet of tigers and lions. Your tour guides will introduce you to each animal you see along the way and share with you their individual stories. Many resident animals have been rescued from roadside zoos, backyards, basements, and lives of exploitation at the hands of entertainment facilities. Today they thrive in large outdoor enclosures, receive a healthy and natural diet, get plenty of enrichment, and are cared for by knowledgeable professionals. Come get a glimpse into their lives and histories and learn how your daily choices impact the future of these beautiful and powerful predators.
