Sponsor Maia, Rana or Lady!

Whether you adore Maia’s wacky ways and are keeping her close to your heart as she finds a new level of emotional strength, have a soft spot for Rana, her sweet vocalization and appreciation of everyday joys or would like to take Lady and her ailing body under your wing, you can show them some extra love and support. You can become their Ele-Guardian.

Your $75 year-long sponsorship will go towards providing them with the daily care that allows their bodies to heal; the foundation needed to support their emotional healing. Your gift goes towards providing them with daily diets, special goodies, supplementation, and medical care supplies and testing.


**NEW** Sponsor Mara!

We understand some elephants tug at your heartstrings, and Mara is no exception. If you would like to support our newest arrival because you are enamored with her sweet face, charmed by her innocence, or just want to welcome her to the sanctuary and show her she is loved- you can become her Ele-guardian.

Adopt Mara now and we will email you her Adoption Certificate and 5×7 photo – and subscribe you to her monthly Eleguardian Updates.  We will email the drawing and biography cards once they become available.

***Digital adoptions only at this time for Mara.  USPS adoptions will be available once we have all of the packet contents printed up.

It is our preferred method to deliver the Adoption Packet digitally (email) to be more friendly to the earth by reducing our environmental impact.  However, we also offer the option to deliver a printed packet via USPS First Class (US addresses only) at an increased donation cost to cover materials and shipping.  Please use this link to access the USPS-Delivered adoption form.





As Their Guardian You Will Receive

➤  Adoption Certificate
➤  A 5×7 card featuring a colored sketch of your elephant on one side and their story on the other artwork by Arte for Elephants (see image below)

➤  A 5×7 photograph that captures a bit of the essence of who they are

for taking one of our very special elephants under your wing and standing by them as they journey down the road of recovery and self-discovery. The world is always a little less scary when you know someone is by your side.

Thank you for opening your heart to them.
