I took two cats to tiger ranch about 4 years ago, they were semi feral cats that lived outside that I fed. I went and had the cats fixed, a mother and son. I also had them get there rabbies vaccination also. I heard of tiger ranch from a veterinary place. They were the ones that gave me phone # for tiger ranch. I was told by the lynn marie that she has 300 acres and its a great place for the cats to live out the rest of their lives. After I gave her these two cats, she said they would have to stay in one of her buildings for a couple of weeks before they can be left out of the building. In a week I called her back regreting giving her my cats, and stated I miss them very bad and I want them back. She gave me all these lies stating she gave them a adoptable home. I pleaded with her I wanted to know who had them but she would not tell me, I pleaded with her. I think she just said that to get me to quit bothering her. I feel she majorly deceived me. Then she blocked my phone# So I was not able to call her anymore. I made a big mistake giving her those cats, they were very healthy when they went to tiger ranch. I just hope and pray that those precious cats would be still living to to be able to recover. If they are I will take them back in the quickness. As for the RUTHLESS Lynn Marie she should spend lots of time in prison. She should be charged as like the animals are humans. They have feelings just like people do.

to animal lover,

they had been investigating the tiger ranch since
2005 i belive, this kind of neglet just dont happen overnight. They where inspected back in October or November , And tiger ranch was given a clean bill. What most dont know or have not be told yet is that the place was worse then youi could see. I was there and i beat myself up everyday because i put my cats in harms way buy taking them to her, thinking i was doing right by them.You here that the media is making it out worse then it is, but they are not.

Is The Center for Animal HEALTH and
WELFARE in Easton sending donations
to the Clarion County Humane Society
to help the surviving cats that they took up there?
Or better yet, are they bringing them back? Or are they doing NOTHING?

What other alternatives are there? I understand it's not the cat's fault but what else can be done.
Adoption? that's not the solution.

Then what? what do you do? let them live out their life in a cage in the hope that someone will adopt?

I don't know the answer, but might have a solution.
It might be hard to take but putting these cats down in a humane way, not shooting them might be what is needed.

The other alternative might be; to call a chinese restaurant and have the cats picked up and served humanly.......

The solution is laws requiring mandatory spaying and neutering. Many are too irresponsible or do not want to pay for the proceedures. Animal rescue organizations could help cover costs for those that are unable to afford the surgery with money earned from donations and funderaisers.

If The Center for Animal Health & Welfare was a humane organization, they would not have sent house cats to Tiger ranch for having ringworm. Since when does a nuisance disease such as ringworm condemn a cat to a horrible death. Who made this decison?? Diane?? Barb?? Julie?? Gina(sp)?? Accountability in any organization is the key. It seems that too many wannabees work in that group. Try actually thinking about the cats for a change instead of where your next dollar is coming from. What a pathetic, self serving group. The worst part is that all the money being raised is going to salaries instead of cat care. Not a true charity org, but a job creation affair.

You can quote all you want, believe what you must, it still does not change or help the problem. What do you do to help with it? Reading things from wise men might help you deal with the problems emotionally, but what else does it do? Might lead you in the right direction, but do you believe in just one persons view? I call that narrow minded.
