IN DEDICATION

THIS PAGE IS DEDICATED TO THOSE INDIVIDUALS WHO HAVE SHOWN THEIR SUPPORT DURING THE MOST DIFFICULT TIME IN A NONPROFIT’S LIFE, THE VERY BEGINNING.  WITHOUT YOU, WE WOULDN’T EXIST. 

Guida

Without getting through the initial year, elephants wouldn’t be enjoying the healing life of sanctuary. This page contains the names of those who supported the creation of a dream, the dream of sanctuary, during our first six months. To us, you will be the founding donors, the ones who helped shift things from a vision to a reality. We will forever be grateful.

We would also like to add a special thanks for those who helped us with the many steps taken behind the scenes that all need to happen before being able to take the big leap with going public. They graciously donated their time, skills, and sometimes patience because they truly believe in what we are trying to accomplish.

Special Thanks To

BDodd Productions

For putting together our crowdfunding video and ensuring it had the heart of sanctuary

Waller Law

 For all the help with legalities, IRS applications, and preventing us from drowning in paperwork

Lyndell Fox, CPA

With Gratitude to

And to all of those that we knew would be there when we made our announcement: your support was not only needed, but the security blanket that allowed us to move forward with creating another sanctuary.
