    The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee’s Board has set aside unrestricted financial operational reserves of four times its budgeted expenses to ensure the lifetime care and safe haven for an undetermined number of elephants. Elephants have an expected life span of 50 – 70 years and The Sanctuary is committed to providing food, shelter, veterinary care, medicine, Caregivers, property maintenance and security. These funds, along with the public’s continuing support are needed to provide for the elephants currently in our care and for those that will come to The Sanctuary.
