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.

At Chapel Hill Pet Resort, your dog may have a better place to stay than you do. Instead of being cooped up in its cage or forced to lead your work meetings with your most important clients, it can enjoy outdoor playing time in a shaded astroturf yard, cool off in pink and blue kiddie pools, chase new canine friends down a plastic slide, or follow the neon-yellow trail of a tennis ball. When the dogs come in for nap time, staff members treat them to Frosty Paws or peanut-butter-stuffed Kongs before they settle in on soft blue blankets.

If your dog has special needs or is shy or geriatric, the employees provide it with more one-on-one time in a private area. Owners who are dreading being left behind for their dogs' first day of daycare can set up tours of the premises to ease their qualms.

Owner Dr. Paula Bullock doesn't want the cost of veterinary care to be the reason people must give up their pets. That's why she opened Affordable Animal Care, a full-service veterinary hospital. There, she and her team work with clients to develop affordable-treatment plans. Treatments include spaying and neutering, as well as medical, dental, and surgical procedures. Vaccinations are also available, with walk-ins welcomed for pets 1 year and older.

Training riders and horses is a family affair at Chapel Ridge Farm, where members of the Bennett family draw from more than 75 years of combined equestrian boarding, training, showing, and sales experience. Owner and head trainer Meagan Bennett takes the reins of each riding class, teaching students how to improve their horsemanship, from basic horse care to fine-tuning their jumping skills for AA competitions. While Meagan is out with students, her mother and one-time state equestrian team coach, Linda Bennett, handles day-to-day operations at the farm. Tom Bennett, Meagan’s father, also helps out and is often available to help transport horses between Chapel Ridge Farm and other equestrian centers to save steeds the aggravation of hitchhiking without thumbs.

If the vet tech checking out the family dog is wearing a tiara, visitors to Lake Pine Animal Hospital shouldn't bat an eye. This tiara is proudly worn by the employee of the month, and is just part of the fun the staff has from day to day. Though the veterinary crew likes to laugh, they take each pet’s health very seriously.

They care for dogs, cats, reptiles, and small mammals with wellness services including comprehensive checkups and vaccinations, and more involved procedures such as surgery and radiology. They also bathe and groom furry friends, and board them while their owners are away or in hibernation.

Baked goods pile high in white dishes or on tiered glass trays, and are sprinkled with colorful crystals imbued with the flavors of peanut butter, pumpkin, and more. Woof Gang Bakery & Grooming's treats please the palates of canines, rather than their human counterparts. Bags of gourmet pet food, toys, and other supplies dedicated to pooch owning sit neatly arranged on evenly spaced racks throughout the store's pastel and stone interior. In the back, a dedicated grooming area—staffed by an equally dedicated groomer—provides an area for owners to pamper their pets with a full wash, and owners can even perform the duties themselves at the self-service station, with the staff cleaning up afterwards.
