Elephant Nature Park, located in Northern Thailand, has not been affected by the devastating floods further south and in central Thailand. However, they are dedicating their time, resources and manpower to working across the stricken provinces in emergency rescue operations to save the lives of thousands of other animals at risk.
They are currently rescuing animals in Bangkok city and in the provinces of Nonthaburee, Rathumthanee and Nakornprthom. They have set up a shelter in south Bangkok, at Bang Pu Industrial Estate, where a local printing company has provided the temporary use of their land.
They are rescuing animals from many different places, including temples and private homes, and also taking in street dogs. Once rescued, the animals receive veterinary care, vaccinations and will eventually be neutered. Once the floods subside, they will be returned to their homes. Strays and lost animals will be brought to a permanent shelter in Nakornsawan province or Chiang Mai.
The Elephant Nature Park team are in urgent need of the following to continue their emergency rescue work:

Volunteers – Elephant Nature Park accepts volunteers to work and stay at the elephant sanctuary, and already these visitors have joined the flood rescue work, but more people are needed.
Small animal medicines — Pain killers, antibiotics, skin disease treatments and medicines, de-worming medications, etc — are just some of the items needed to teat the traumatised, often injured and ill dogs and cats rescued.
Transport — another motor boat and an additional truck are desperately needed to speed up the rescue.
If you can help Elephant Nature Park with any of the above, or make a donation towards their emergency rescue work, please visit their website now and help them save Thailand’s animals.
