Rescue. Advocacy. Sanctuary. For Life.
Since 1984
Did you know that it costs about $50,000 each month to feed and care for the eight elephants at PAWS’ ARK 2000 sanctuary? That’s why we need you to give BIG for #GivingTuesday on December 1st.

Our goal is to raise $50,000 (or more!) in 24 hours for our elephants, who were rescued or retired from zoos and circuses.

Your gift makes a HUGE difference. You provide the elephants with a more natural life where they roam gentle hills, feast on fresh vegetation, and revel in the quiet and beauty of nature. Dedicated staff is on hand 24 hours a day/seven days a week to ensure their health and welfare.

#GivingTuesday starts at 12:01 a.m. on December 1st and ends at 11:59 p.m. but you can make your contribution now! 

To donate now or on #GivingTuesday: Click on the "Donate Now" button below, which takes you to PAWS' #GivingTuesday site on MightyCause. Or call PAWS' office at 209-745-2606, Mon.-Fri., between the hours of 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. (Pacific Time) to charge your donation. Be sure to tell our staff that your donation is for #GivingTuesday.

Donations made between now and December 1st count towards our #GivingTuesday total and will be added to the leader board on the day of the event.

Start off the holiday season by giving BIG for the elephants today! Urge your co-workers, family members, and friends to donate as well. 

Thank you from all of us at PAWS!
