Wildlife SOS, Mathura in southern India IS A VERY GOOD NEW HOME :-))))

At this sanctuary, she will join the ranks of other rescued elephants such as Raju, Suzy and Asha. Together, this rag-tag herd is showing the world the true meaning of resilience.
Thanks for this GREAT JOB !!!

Thanks Angela,I'm happy to know Lakhi will have a much more relaxing, and comfortable life in a sanctuary rather than an abusive, hellish existence.
