Thank you to everyone who donated to our fire recovery fund. Since we shared about the wildfire, we have raised over $22,000 through our website and nearly $7,000 through Facebook – it comes to over $29,000 to help us rebuild.
Our emergency plan is entirely focused on keeping the elephants safe. Still, we have so many other loved and adored animals that our lives wouldn’t be the same without. We continue to be so grateful that they all are fine. It could have been so much worse. There was one chicken that we briefly believed had passed away from smoke inhalation. Within minutes, the chicken recovered to the point that she was running around the house, trying to get back outside.
We know that most of you follow our page for the elephants. To see you give so quickly and generously for the land, and the fences for our rehab program, and the water pump… It fills us with gratitude and appreciation. Thank you for what you do, and thank you all for your level of caring.
We – including the entire team – will still be processing what happened for a while, but we wanted to take a moment to share the amount that has been generously donated so far, along with our most heartfelt appreciation for this overwhelming demonstration of your support and love. ❤️
