The Elephant Sanctuary by christine

During our meeting on Wednesday, the Animal Rights Collective decided that our annual Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale (WVBS) would benefit The Elephant Sanctuary in Hohenwald, Tennessee. This is especially fitting because of our campaign to end animal acts and the cruelty of the Ringling Bros. Circus on our campus.

The Elephant Sanctuary is the nation’s largest natural-habitat refuge, spanning over 2,700 acres. It is home to old, sick or needy Asian and African elephants that have been removed from zoos and circuses. The elephants are allowed to roam free with peace and dignity through dense forests, green pastures, and spring-fed ponds. Heated barns provide shelter and warmth during cold winter nights. The sanctuary is currently home to 15 lovely ladies.

Look out for our WVBS in April!
