Carolina Tiger Rescue

We discovered that only a few miles from where we were staying in North Carolina, there is a facility called Carolina Tiger Rescue.  This non-profit takes in and cares for large cats that were sick, injured, abandoned or seized by authorities.  Most of these animals had been private "pets" or from failed "roadside attractions".  While it was sad to see these magnificent animals here, they were experiencing a much better existence than where they had been.

With a restriction that kept us a minimum of three feet beyond the chain link fencing, getting photos without the fence in the foreground was difficult.

North Carolina Spring

Spring is finally starting to arrive in this part of the East.  Trees are now blooming and starting to leaf out.

Kwanzan Cherry

And lots of Dogwood trees around

The butterflies are out.
