It’s going to take a lot to rescue the four Mendoza Zoo elephants and bring them to sanctuary. We could use your help and this is a great opportunity to do just that.
GSE will be holding an on-line auction in June. There will be items of all sorts from around the world for you to bid on. The money will go directly towards the rescue of the Mendoza Four.
While the auction is still months away, right now we are starting to gather donated items for future bidding. If you have an item you want to donate, or know someone who does, it will help move Kenya, Tamy, Pocha and Guillermina to their new life. If you are a go-getter and would like to approach businesses to see if they will donate gift certificates or other items, we could use your help. If you’re located near Brentwood TN and would like to help with inventory, stocking and shipping- we adore you (just know we like you even if you can’t )
There are many ways you can help make this auction a success for the four deserving elephants who have spent a lifetime surrounded by concrete and are now steps away from living out their lives engrossed in nature, surrounded by others of their own kind.
Our group of volunteers is helping us arrange everything, so Scott and I can focus on taking care of Maia and Guida and building the next habitat for African elephants. You can visit the friends of Global Sanctuary for Elephants FB page, more information, handouts that can be used to solicit donations or just to see where you can help. You can also check out the auction page to see what it’s all about and learn a little more about us. If you have questions or want to speak to someone directly you can write us at GSEauction@GlobalElephants.org
Thank you for your continued support and helping us to rescue four more elephants- all who are just waiting for sanctuary.
As many of you know, in order to be able to rescue Maia and Guida and not have them sent to another facility, we had to take them before the first full 40-acre area was fenced in. This is the same process we will probably be using to rescue the next elephants as well. It allows us to get them here, let them learn all that sanctuary is about while continuing to grow. Yesterday the girls were given access to the next area that was finished being fenced in. They will still have access to the first area as well.
Exciting holiday news and a gift for which we can all celebrate. You guessed it-more elephants are coming to sanctuary.
We have talked about Guida, her feet and how she responded to being closed in on the patio, but we also did some work with Maia as well.
