2023 is going to be another exciting year, but we need your support. On Giving Tuesday and the days that followed, we raised funds to care for Lady for a full year!  Now, we’d like to push the bar even higher and raise money to care for THREE of our beloved residents.  The annual cost to care for one elephant at our sanctuary is $48,000.

That makes our 2022 goal $144,000!

You can help us reach our goal by making a donation today.  To make an even bigger impact, thanks to our friends at the Patricia and Paul Bragg Foundation, all gifts to the End of Year campaign up to $50,000 were matched, for a total of $100,000! That means your kindness and generosity made two times the difference.

Because of you, we met our goal to cover the annual cost of care for Guillermina, Rana, AND Mara!   Thank you for your incredible support during this campaign and all of 2022!

Special thanks to the Patricia & Paul Bragg Foundation for providing the $50,000 matching gift challenge.

Sanctuary isn’t just a place it’s a new beginning, peace of mind. For the first time, elephants will have a life that is all about them. Thank you for helping to build and provide a future for elephants in need.

Every dollar makes a difference.  Every share builds their home.  Every one of us can change a life.  Forever.
