Homeless dogs with disabilities find a new life at the Elephant Sanctuary

Elephant Nature Park in Thailand is home for many rescued elephants. The elephants have come from all walks of life and from lives with many hardships.

But what many people don’t know is that the elephant sanctuary is also home to over 400 rescued dogs, including 32 very special ones. The 32 dogs have lost the use of their legs through accident, disease, neglect and abuse.

These dogs would likely not have lived if they hadn’t been found by the rescuers of Save Elephant Foundation (which funds and runs the sanctuary).

They would have either continued to be overlooked and suffer on the streets or have possibly been put to sleep at the vet.

Instead, they have a life where they are loved and well-cared for by the volunteers and the sanctuary.

The handicapped dogs feel like normal dogs when they get the wheelchairs on.

As soon as they get them on, they just want to go go go.

Many other volunteers drop by to visit the dogs too. “They are happy dogs and love being with people,” the volunteer reveals.
