Carolina Tiger Rescue NC

Located in beautiful Pittsboro NC, Carolina Tiger Rescue is home to nearly 50 cats:  tigers, lions, leopards, cougars, caracals, servals, ocelots, bobcats, coatimundi, and kinkajous.

From their website: “Carolina Tiger Rescue’s mission is saving and protecting wild cats in captivity and in the wild.  We believe the ideal home for wildlife is in the wild. Therefore, 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 and Population Management plans. Lastly, 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.”
