GIVING TUESDAY LAST CHANCE! – Young Rama has only been with us for a few weeks now. We’ve told you about his fractured spine and the infected wounds on his legs from brutal spiked chains. He’s got a mischievous spirit, so his owner likely had him tightly bound and unable to move for long periods of time. His frustration must have been unimaginable.
The endearing photo above shows a frightened bull who doesn’t know what lies ahead. Fearful, he has lashed out at staff and has caused significant damage to his enclosure. But he remains safe, and our team is vigilant in their determination to help Rama.
This Giving Tuesday, we’ve shown you uplifting examples of healing the body and spirit of injured elephants. Jai, Holly, Pari, and Lakshmi have all made great progress on their journey to recovery. Rama is just beginning this long process, and he needs us more than ever. The infected wounds on his legs are now clean, and we can see his torn flesh that needs to heal. Nursing Rama back to health will take significant time, resources and patience.
Can you find it in your heart to give to support the costly care of the elephants at our rescue centres? Elephant care is an expensive process, requiring daily cleaning, laser treatments, proper diet and nutrition, exercise and reducing their stress. Here are some ways you can help: * $15 provides nutritious food for a day that has vitamins and minerals important for healing. * $35 provides an elephant with a care person to take them for a long walk to graze by the river. * $100 provides 4 laser healing treatments. * $500 provides veterinary care for a month.
IT’S GIVING TUESDAY! – You saw Pari’s painful gait when she walked, but did you know she was also covered with wounds? It’s hard to imagine how a young elephant of only 20-years-old could be in such horrible condition, but begging on the streets is cruel and brutal.
Our expert veterinarians got consultations from world-class human rheumatologists and neurologists who volunteered their time to help plan Pari’s long-term care. They hoped that if we treated Pari’s open wounds, injured feet, and arthritic legs, her gait and posture would improve and we’d stop her tragic downward spiral. They were right!
Once Pari’s pain was managed, she could move better and increase her circulation. That in turn helped her wounds heal, and relieved her arthritis. Care for injured elephants takes years, and we can’t help elephants like Pari without your kindness and generosity.
On Giving Tuesday, could you find it in your heart to give to support the costly care of the more than 35 elephants at our rescue centres? We’re almost half way to reaching our fundraising goal!
IT’S GIVING TUESDAY! – Holly is everyone’s favorite timid, blind, senior elephant. She’s 65 years old, and her body tells a story of decades of torment as a begging elephant. Much of her daily care routine is managing chronic wounds … injuries that likely won’t completely heal in her lifetime because they were left untreated for so long. But the intensive treatment can still give her comfort and heal some of the open sores on the old gal. You can see for yourself what a difference we can make.
On Giving Tuesday, could you find it in your heart to give to support the costly care of the more than 35 elephants at our rescue centres?
IT’S GIVING TUESDAY! – Today we’ll be sharing stories of triumph over cruelty. Battered and beaten elephants who have shown tremendous courage, rather than give up. Elephants like Lakshmi, the “skinniest elephant.” She was days or even hours from death, but she hung on until our rescue team could rush her to the skilled care of the Wildlife SOS Elephant Hospital.
She’s got a long road of physical and emotional recovery ahead, but look at the improvement she’s made! On Giving Tuesday, could you find it in your heart to give to support the costly care of the more than 35 elephants at our rescue centres?
Pari’s recovery is inspirational! In 2021 when we first saw Pari, her severe injuries were debilitating. The young elephant’s feet and legs were in such bad condition, her back and gait told a story of extreme pain and abuse. She held her head low and her legs were splayed, causing a cascade of other injuries.

Our aim was to manage Pari’s pain, treat her wounds and get her moving so the rest of her body would begin to heal. Just look at her now! She has made so much progress, but still has a long recovery ahead.
Tomorrow is Giving Tuesday, and we need your support more than ever. Will you help us heal the body and spirit of injured elephants like Pari?

In October 2023, we were able to give Rama a new life of freedom, and today, at the Wildlife SOS Elephant Hospital, we are celebrating yet another milestone with him. Arriving at the Hospital, Rama bore a bell around his neck. As he takes the ultimate stride towards a liberated existence, the removal of Rama`s bell becomes a symbolic gesture, marking the poignant farewell to a history marred by abuse.
Happy Birthday to the visionary leader, our CEO and Co-founder, Mr. Kartick Satyanarayan! Your passion, dedication, and innovative spirit inspire us every day. May this year bring you even greater success and joy. Cheers to another year of achieving milestones and leading us to new heights!
