I have been a regular donor to Tiger Haven for many years. I strongly support their mission to save/protect great cats and hope they succeed. That said, I am continually put off by what seems, at best, a somewhat chaotic management situation. Many of their requests for donations are frantic cries for help for daily disasters (e.g. "the truck won't start", etc). I have no doubt that Mary Lynn and her team do their very best, but it is really too bad that they can't persuade a good young lawyer or marketing person to come in pro bono to advise them (maybe university law students??). They seem to need vastly better daily management, awareness, and planning. Maybe that is why some raters only give them one star. I will continue to support them and I wish them good luck.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
helping them (through donations) to save great cats.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
hope that they can find some good advisors and planners to help them get the daily management of their organization on a more stable track.
Donor & sent money.
