At PAWS, #GivingTuesday 2022

Is All About the Elephants!

Did you know that it costs more than $44,000 each month to feed and care for the seven rescued and retired elephants at PAWS’ ARK 2000 sanctuary? That’s why we're asking you to give BIG for #GivingTuesday on November 29th.

Help us meet our goal of raising $88,000 (or more!) by making a generous donation today.

Double Your Donation!

Thanks to generous friends of PAWS, all #GivingTuesday contributions will be matched, dollar for dollar, up to $35,000! Your donation will go twice as far for the elephants!

Your kind gift goes directly to the care of the elephants, including Gypsy, who spent 40 grueling years in cruel circuses; Lulu, who overcame a traumatic past and now flourishes at PAWS (she is the oldest African elephant in North America); and Prince, who was torn from his mother before age two and sent to a circus.

Each and every donation makes a BIG difference. You provide the elephants with a more natural life where they roam gentle hills, feast on fresh vegetation, and bask 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.

Early Giving Begins Today!

#GivingTuesday starts at 12:01 a.m. on November 29th and ends at 11:59 p.m. but you can make your contribution now! Donations made between November 15th and November 29th count towards our #GivingTuesday total and will be added to the leader board on the day of the event.
