Review for Performing Animal Welfare Society, Galt, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

PAWS, run by Pat Derby and Ed Stewart for many years, is in SanAndreas, Calif. They painstakingly take care of rescued female Asian and African elephants in separate habitats and now have "Bull Mountain", home to several bull elephants. Bob Barker of Price Is Right fame is a benefactor to the elephants and has recently helped build the new bear habitats. Lions and tigers are in residence too on the over 2000 acres of rolling hills in sunny California. See their site and fall in love with all of the rescuees at pawsweb.org.

Review for Elephant Sanctuary, Hohenwald, TN, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

The sanctuary was founded in 1995 by two people, Carol Buckley and Scott Blais. There is an error on the Guidestar profile of sanctuary People. Mr. Scott Blais is listed as Founder which is incorrect. When two people perpetuate an enterprise, they forever remain each a Co-founder. To call one person Founder, is to steal the entire endeavor from the other. However this occurred, it needs to be corrected immediately. The other Co-founder, Ms. Buckley, was removed by a vote. Essentially, the vision, the elephant responsible for the vision, and it remains to be seen how much more, seem to have been taken from Ms. Buckley. The reason for this thus far remains a secret.

Role:  Donor & Was a donor and supporter for 11 years until the ousting of Ms. Buckley. I had a website devoted to elephants and those in both of our sanctuaries in the USA.
