Review for Elephant Sanctuary, Hohenwald, TN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have loved elephants since I was a child and as I got older I began to understand that many of them are used in circuses and exhibits and are mistreated and lonely. One day I happened upon the Elephant Sanctuary and was astonished by the work they do and the elephants they serve.

You can tell by their communication with the public that they love and RESPECT these great animals. They take in the ones that have been broken and downhearted for a long time and give them a chance to be an elephant for the first time in an environment where they can roam free and just be what God intended them to be.

Their website is informative and fun to visit and the Elecams are great. You get a chance to see the girls having fun. One day I was lucky enough to see them having a great time in the rain. It made me smile for days. I also know it is teaching a new generation about elephants and how they should be treated.

I wish there was no Elephant Sanctuary -- not because they don't do wonderful and necessary work -- but because I wish elephants were never put in situations that these girls have been put in. But since my wish is not true I am so thankful for the Elephant Sanctuary and will continue to be a supporter as long as I can.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

My wish is selfish and that is that donors could have a chance to actually visit and see the girls, but I also appreciate that the Sanctuary is about not putting the elephants on display.
