How would you like to "adopt" one of the elephants residing here at the sanctuary? A grown elephant eats about two hundred pounds of feed every day. Most of that is high-quality fresh vegetation and hay, but they also receive more expensive specially prepared grains, vitamins, minerals and produce for balanced nutrition.
Then there's veterinary care. You know what the medical costs are for your own health care. Just think what your prescriptions might cost if you weighed several thousand pounds! Of course, elephants also need shelter from the elements and knowledgeable people to care for them.
When you adopt an elephant, you can choose the individual elephant that your contribution will support. You can sponsor an elephant for:
- Three months ($35)
- Six months ($50)
- A Full Year ($100)
By selecting one of the residents of Riddle's Elephant and Wildlife Sanctuary and sending in your registration form and sponsorship contribution, you'll be helping to assure "your" elephant's care and feeding for up to a year. In return, you'll receive:
- A personalized sponsorship certificate
- A photo of your elephant
- A bumper sticker which states "ASK ME ABOUT MY ELEPHANT"
- A subscription to the sanctuary newsletter
- An invitation for you, your family and friends to visit the Sanctuary on visitation days.
Remember that a sponsorship makes a great gift for a family member, or that special friend who loves elephants. You'll also have the opportunity to renew your foster care at the end of our sponsorship period.
You can make a real difference by assuring that unwanted elephants are given safe refuge, that studies to help all elephants worldwide continue here at the sanctuary in collaboration with various international elephant expert.
Your support will help assure that these highly endangered animals will be safeguarded for future generations.
Riddle's Elephant and Wildlife Sanctuary is dedicated to the preservation of both African and Asian elephants. It is the only facility in the world that promises a permanent home to any elephant in need of sanctuary for any reason. The Sanctuary now houses twelve elephants - Asian and African, male and female - which have been given a home at the request of various zoological institutions, circuses, and private owners.
