Dear Donors and Well Wishers,

We regret to inform you of a further 6 - month delay in transferring Lakshmi, our ailing rescued Elephant, from her current transit facility in Tamil Nadu, where she is receiving daily treatment for her infected feet, to her permanent abode at our Malur Elephant Care Facility in Karnataka.

On the advice, of a government deputed team of veterinarians and inspectors , we have been instructed by the authorities to delay her departure as she is still too unwell to undertake the long arduous journey by road to Malur. Hence we will continue her treatment till she is well enough to travel.

We have also put in a request, to let us move her to a larger space, where she can have more room to move around and exercise her limbs.

We are as impatient as you must be, to see her safe and settled in her final home, so that she needn't go through the settling down process too many times. We are so grateful for your patience, support and love for her, and hope you continue to understand our constraints, as we are working in collaboration with the local authorities to ensure that we are able to move her safely and within regulations, in the near future. We are hopeful, that she will be found to be fit for travel, at her next medical review by the state authorities scheduled to be 6 months from now.

We will keep you updated of her progress regularly. Thank you again for extending your support and we are hopeful, that she will be with us at our care facility very soon.

Thanking You
Warmly,
WRRC Team

Dear Donors,

We regret to announce further delays in moving Lakshmi, as some of her wounds on her feet have relapsed. The scabs have reopened, as she began walking slowly despite wearing her shoes, so its painful for her to stand on her feet for several hours at a time.

We're continuing her treatment, and hope that in another month, she will be healed enough to take the 18 hr journey to the Malur Elephant Care Facility. Meanwhile, her enclosure is now ready, and she has a mud wallow, swimming pool waiting for her. But we have to move cautiously and at a pace suited to her recovery, so that we don't end up damaging her feet further.

 We are grateful for your support, encouragement and request you to be patient with us, as we're trying to do what's best for her. So, she will remain at the transit facility, for another month with intensive medical therapy, and once we are assured by the vet, that she can take the journey, then we will move her. Meanwhile, she needs your prayers, and good wishes, as she is in considerable pain, and we're doing everything we possibly can to make her feel better. It is so frustrating that this gentle, wonderful animal is needlessly suffering due to the deliberate neglect caused by her previous owners.

We thank you for your support and will keep you posted. We're sharing some photos of her feet, so that you can see for yourself, why we're unable to put her through the transfer journey at present.

Warm Regards
Team WRRC

Aneesha inspects the construction of Lakshmi's night time enclosure, making sure everything is done properly. Once the construction is complete, which we hope will be by end of this month, we will do some natural landscaping to make it green and soothing to both ele's. Then we will move Lakshmi by road to the Malur Facility. We will keep you updated!

Lakshmi is walking with much less pain and will soon be ready for her journey.
