Geralyn Kelly believes that the only way to train a dog is to know everything about them. After starting her dog education more than ten years ago, Geralyn has amassed canine knowledge via jobs at a pet store, a kennel, and now her own dog-behavior company. Since then, she has trained the North Carolina's first registered service greyhound, and taught a Shih Tzu how to alert her owner when his pacemaker battery is low.
Today, she leads training classes for dogs of all levels. She starts with beginning commands, such as sit and stay, ensuring dogs have figured out the fundamentals. More advanced classes teach dogs to heel and to come when called, while the therapy dog classes teach dogs the necessary skills to practice extreme patience and pass the therapy dog certification test.

Geneticist Dr. Michael Bleyman founded Carolina Tiger Rescue in the 1970s as a breeding sanctuary for large carnivores whose habitats had become unsafe. Its original intent was to protect wild species that were crucial to the survival of particular ecosystems, sustaining the populations until their home habitats were protected enough to support them without risk. Today, the organization protects wild cats in captivity and in nature by providing homes for abandoned or neglected cats, raising awareness about the threats to these animals, and assisting with conservation efforts in rainforests and wild habitats. Carolina Tiger Rescue currently houses more than 70 carnivores, including tigers, black leopards, ocelots, caracals, servals, and kinkajous. Many of the facility's residents have been rescued from dangerous situations in urban spaces and private breeding facilities. Now they have a lifelong home in re-created natural habitats.

On the 2.5-acre property, dogs enjoy large and small pet suites, and cats stretch out in private and group condos complete with cat trees, scratching posts, and kitty beds.
