I got a request in the mail from Tiger Haven. Like all requests, I checked with Charity Navigator. They got a 1 star rating and had a lot of financial concerns and 50% of their budget went to fund raising! ( A fund raising efficiency of 50%). By comparison The Elephant Sanctury, also located in the rural South had 5 stars and a fundraising efficiency of 3%. There are better places to donate.

I received a mailing requesting money to donate to this organization. However, after doing research online I decided not to give money because of the bad reviews here and only a one star rating on another site. I am horrified to think that this owner is using these poor animals. I sincerely hope not. It seems doing the right thing for right's sake is rapidly vanishing in this world and for that I am very afraid. Despite anyone's belief in a higher power we are all on this planet "together". No one species is here for the sole purpose of serving another. Animals are on this good Earth WITH us; not FOR us to use, abuse, discard and mistreat as we see fit. In fact, it is the opposite. We have a responsibility as a member of the species of reason to co-exist, not control and destroy. The bio diverse species on this Earth can tell us much if we let them; instead, we look down our noses at them. Disregard of any life has consequences for which people live in a dream world of arrogance. Retribution comes to all and we have yet to see the consequences of how serious this will be for many future generations to come. There are some things technology can't fix; there are mistakes that can never be undone. I sincerely hope that this organization can improve so that I can feel good about donating to these magnificent animals. For now, I will look for another.

Incredibly poor (and annoying) fundraising techniques. 49.3% of money raised goes to the fundraiser
