November Cause - Getting Lonely Elephant Kaavan to a New Home

Kaavan is an Asian Elephant, who since 1985 lives alone in a Pakistani zoo, and was called 

‘the loneliest elephant in the world’. The loneliness and deplorable conditions at the zoo has caused him severe psychological distress, and years of confinement and malnutrition resulted in obesity and poor health. 

After years of efforts by "Free the Wild" and "Four Paws" organizations, Kaavan's release was finally agreed, and a new home was recently found for him at the Cambodia Wildlife Sanctuary. He is currently being treated by veterinarians to improve his health and train him for the plane journey to Cambodia.

This month we are donating 5% of all Elephant Hug sales to "Free the Wild" for building Kaavan's new home in Cambodia.
