Review for Tiger Haven, Kingston, TN, USA
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.
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.
