Break Description


Carolina Tiger Rescue is home to ten species of animals, including tigers, lions, cougars, and kinkajous. Many of their animals have been rescued from dire situations where they were kept as pets, props in roadside zoos, or as residents of failing sanctuaries. According to the organization, the wild pet trade is the third largest illegal trade internationally, which means that there are many wild cats living in captivity throughout the country.

We’ll work directly with the sanctuary’s site manager and construction assistant and may help to build new enclosures and platforms, renovate existing enclosures, and assist with groundskeeping and general maintenance tasks. Breakers will need to be able to stand for extended periods, and be comfortable bending and crouching and lifting 20+ lbs.

Join us as we put our time and efforts to use in support of Carolina Tiger Rescue’s mission: Saving and protecting wild cats in captivity and in the wild. We work toward a day when wild cats are living in their native habitat and are not exploited by humans.
