I worked at Tiger Haven for 4 months. Please, find another charity to donate to. The owner brags about the fact that she has 3 million excess dollars above the cost of running Tiger Haven to spend however she pleases. Everyday, she has multiple packages from Amazon delivered to her office, most of which contain things that are of no use to the cats. For example: cat statues, blankets, candles, posters, movies, house plants, and an assortment of useless crap. This place needs to be changed. The cats could be cared for far better. Mary Haven isn't qualified to own and run a place like tiger haven. I'm just ranting, but I care about the cats and they aren't being cared for the way they should and more of the money that is being donated should be used in a far more responsible way, and should be improving the cats quality of life.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Change in management, more accountability, fire quite a few of the employees and hire more responsible, caring employees, make the salary more fair to the full time employees, expose Mary Haven's irresponsibilty to her many donors, and make Chris Edwards (a professional animal handler that Mary has hired) far more responsible in Tiger haven, he has more skill, professionalism, and knowledge in this field than any of the other employees, but is beaten down by poor management.

Review from CharityNavigator

I cannot believe that this organization only has 1 star, when there are numerous organizations on Charity Navigator that are rated higher even though their scoundrel Presidents, CEOs, etc. are paid nearly a quarter or half a million dollars which equals a quarter or half of their funds. The president of Tiger Haven takes a meager salary which is a strong indicator that what a person donates actually goes to helping the Tigers. Check out the website, it's very informative. Unlike the bogus organizations who contacted me to become a member or asked for more money after I already had joined or donated money, I am not inundated with e-mails or mailings from Tiger Haven asking for money.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I was contacted via phone by the president to verify my donation. She also thanked me and answered my questions I had about Tiger Haven. Enclosed with my t-shirt was a personal letter (not a form letter) of thanks from the president.

The president should probably be paid more, but knows that every dollar counts in helping the Tigers.
