I love The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee! I have been supporting them for many years and this year, I am sponsoring Shirley!
I own “The Urban Elephant” documentary from 2001 and have been sharing this video with anyone who is willing to watch it. My brother wasn’t too thrilled about sitting through it when I brought it up. But after he saw it, he told me he was so glad I made him watch it and really, REALLY enjoyed it!
“On July 6, 1999, Shirley became the fourth resident of The Elephant Sanctuary, joining Tarra, Jenny, and Barbara. At The Sanctuary, Shirley experienced a very loving reunion with Jenny. Research showed the two elephants had been in the same circus 23 years earlier! This memorable event is the subject of an Emmy-winning National Geographic documentary, ‘The Urban Elephant'” writes The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee.
Watch the 12 minute trailer! You will love this story!
