Raju lived for 50 years in spiked shackles, being fed paper and plastic trash. I am an empathetic person and bawled when I heard his story. I will never understand the cruelty of people!
When the rescuers showed up to take off his shackles and release him, he cried tears down his face! Raju has been free for two years and I now cry tears of joy right along with him!
I am thankful for Wildlife S.O.S for taking a stand and rescuing this incredible creature, who has more compassion, intelligence and love than most humans these days!
It is a very expensive, legal battle to confiscate animals from torturous lives. Please consider donating to them or another rescue or conservation group. Those of us with hearts for what is right, need to give to those who are working so hard to make a huge difference!
Here are a few more great groups I like:
