Applaud Organization for Saving Abused Elephants

Baby elephant

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.

  1. Geetha Seshamani, & the group, Thank you so much for helping out & rescuing these majestic Elephants from their nightmares & hellish conditions while saving their precious lives. In a country like India to go forward courageously, and face these cruel individuals while protecting the lives of defenceless, voiceless sentient beings obviously must be a tedious task. Yet you all have done this with pride and compassion. In that regards to you all, MY HAT IS OFF TO YOU!!! Thank YOU all.

  2. Geetha Seshamani and your group need to be commended with your fight against the abuse of our elephants. These gentle giants are our heritage and we value them to the utmost! Our African elephant needs to be free and out in the wilds, for them to be in a Zoo is such a mental and physical trauma and must not happen. Sadly 34 of our baby elephants have just been sent via Malawi and Mozambique to the ships to go to Chineese Zoos, the public are up in arms but have no say with petitions, so many will die on the trip wripped away from their doting Mothers to head to a life of HELL if they live. A sadness beyond words. So for me to read your stories of saving elephants from their tormented lives to give them peace and tranquility is so touching and wish you all the best in your future rescues of these great majestic animals!
