Target: Co-founder of Wildlife S.O.S. Geeta Seshamani
Goal: Thank Wildlife S.O.S. for saving the lives of 67 elephants
Wildlife S.O.S. is responsible for several high-profile animal rescues, and the organization’s most recent rescue involves removing 67 elephants from harsh conditions. These elephants have been chained and abused for the majority of their lives, and the organization intends to give them a safe and serene home. The organization has been responsible for other rescues, and we should thank co-founder Geeta Seshamani for the group’s compassion and generosity in helping animals.
Suzy is one of 67 elephants that Wildlife S.O.S. rescued from Indian circuses. While the practice of using pachyderms is forbidden in the nation, many circuses still operate in this manner. These creatures were abused and tortured by their owners in order to perform tricks and up profits. The elephants suffered multiple wounds, scarring, and psychological trauma. Fortunately Wildlife S.O.S. stepped in, and are now in the process of transporting these elephants to safer and calmer homes.
The organization has been responsible for other rescues in the past. The emotional footage of its rescue of Raju, an elephant who spent 50 years in chains, became an overnight sensation. Six months later and the elephant’s wounds are healing, but many of his injuries and medical conditions are long term. The organization is working hard to undo the years of torture and abuse he suffered. In another case Wildlife S.O.S. rescued the “dancing bears.” These bears are captured when they are cubs, and have their muzzles pierced to better control them and make them dance. This is a centuries-old tradition, a tradition that many animal welfare organizations are fighting to break.
Needless to say, this organization has done a lot in recent years for the well-being of our animals. The organization is based in India, and relies on donations to continue its work. Please sign this petition and say thank you to co-founder Geeta Seshamani for the organization’s compassion.
Dear Ms. Seshamani,
I wish to give you my deepest thanks for recently saving elephants that were subjected to cruelty and torture. Wildlife S.O.S. has helped so many animals in need out of the kindness of its heart. As co-founder you are no doubt one of the driving forces for this organization.
What you’ve done for Raju and many other abused animals will not be forgotten. Your compassion has made the world a better place not just for these animals, but for humans as well. Please continue to treat and aid any animal who needs it.
