Rockwell, NC, February 05, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- The North Carolina Veterinary Medical Association (NCVMA) has awarded one of its five annual $5,000 High Five grants to Tiger World. Located in Rockwell, Tiger World is a nonprofit animal conservation and educational center dedicated to the protection, rescue, rehabilitation and preservation of exotic animals. Operating with no tax support, Tiger World differentiates itself from ordinary zoos by specializing in threatened and endangered species. The High Five Grant will assist Tiger World in funding the care needed to accommodate these animals.
The High Five Grant Program was established to assist qualified organizations that promote community service as well as compassion and health care for people and animals in North Carolina. NCVMA will award $5,000 to Tiger World in 2014, and the organization will have the opportunity to receive another $5,000 grant in 2015 by a reapplication process.
