October 17th, 2009 - FCF Accreditation

A1Savannahs is now accredited by the Feline Conservation Federation. FCF accredited facilities operate with the highest level of husbandry and management practices. 

October 17, 2009 -- A1Savannahs is the latest facility to be accredited by the Feline Conservation Federation, an international non-profit organization dedicated to preserving, protecting and propagating wild felids. 
This facility joins other USDA licensed zoos, sanctuaries, educational centers, breeding compounds, and private owners who comprise the growing list of FCF accredited facilities. 
A1Savannahs, located in Ponca City, Oklahoma, was also approved for FCF accreditation. The FCF accreditation board judged A1Savannahs to be operating with excellence in both facility management and feline husbandry. 
"This is a step in the right direction", says Mr. Callahan, adding, "It is important for professional breeders that raise and breed servals to meet high standards of husbandry." 
As an FCF accredited facility A1Savannahs will raise the bar for others and set a positive example about the importance of supporting conservation of wild felids, including servals, which are used in breeding programs to create the exotic hybrid known as Savannahs. 
The FCF accreditation is the seal of approval that assures donors, the media, and members of the public that accredited facilities are operating with the highest level of husbandry and management practices, encouraging emulation by others.
