There are 3,200 tigers estimated to be living in the wild, compared to about 10,000 being kept as pets in the U.S. As a company that rescues all wild cats, Carolina Tiger Rescue has the overall goal of eventually going out of business - meaning, one day they hope there won't be a need to rescue tigers. Going online and purchasing a baby tiger is surprisingly an easy feat, but something most people who adopt tigers don't realize is that they become increasingly difficult to care for.

These initially small, cuddly animals grow into 700-pound cats, and become nearly impossible to take care of domestically. Carolina Tiger Rescue saved one tiger in particular, Aria - a tiger they found nearly 200 pounds underweight from malnutrition. The company has undergone similar rescues with 20 other tigers over the course of the past few years.

Tigers are valuable beings in the world yet shouldn't be treated as domestic animals. The Carolina Tiger Rescue cautions people to respect the fact that tigers are wild animals and should be treated as such.
