Lady, and all of us here, would like to wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving. Your Thanksgiving may not look like it normally does this year, but as the girls have shown us, you can always find something to be thankful for.
We are thankful for the joy and healing that Maia, Rana, Lady, Mara, and Bambi find here every day and for being able to share it with those who make it possible. We are appreciative that they allow us to be part of their lives and walk alongside them in their journey. We are grateful that their stories bring joy, inspiration, and strength, reminding us that even in difficult times, if we just hold on, there will be light.
Thank you for helping make sanctuary possible for these phenomenal elephants and for holding them close to your heart.

I am thankful, so thankful, for the existence of sanctuaries for captive animals around the world. And I can’t wait for this shift of culture to reach Mexico, and all the world.

I echo everyone’s sentiments on this page. It is a joy to receive daily updates of all of our elephants and it a regular part of my day to receive daily updates when you are so busy looking after these wonderful beings who deserve everything you give them.

Such a BEAUTIFUL blog post! I’m thankful for so much; too much to put in this comment. I’m also thankful for so many “Redeemers” that I k ow of; Scott, Kat, staff, crew & of course, the Stars of the show, The BEAUTIFUL Gray Ladies! Redeemers to me are any living creature doing something inçredible to redeem my faith in man & animal kind. You all at GSE are top of the list. The Golden Girls themselves are Redeemers because they make us smile every day with their just being themselves, living in Sanctuary. Happy Thanksgiving to ALL!
Sherry saysNovember 26, 2020 at 6:03 pm

We do have much to be thankful for this year. Things are different but in many ways better weve all learned to deal with lifes many challenges and hardships just like these gorgeous girls have, theyve shown us taught us to never give up no matter how bad things are they will get better, dear sweet Ramba was a prime example of that. Sending everyone a huge heartfelt thank you and Happy Gobble Gobble day at GSE what an amazing group of compassionate people! God bless ? ????????

From the UK I share with you this Thanksgiving! Thankful for this blessed piece of heaven, for all the carers at ESB who devote themselves to our magnificent giants, to the wildlife and the other animals who share their lives and to the environment. It is a privilege to be part of the sanctuary family. May we continue to walk this path together gaining strength in our togetherness.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
