Here at Elephant Nature Park we have had the pleasure to interact and spend time with some of the most incredible animals on the planet. We’ve helped to care for a new born baby elephant and took a 14 hour ride to the border of Thailand and Laos to care for over 2000 dogs that were rescued from the illegal dog meat trade. We made a big change in the way we look at the world and the way animals are treated, and decided that compassion, life, and animal rights is what is right for us.
And for the last 3 months we have been working with over 380 dogs at the Elephant Nature Park dog clinic. We helped with treatments, vaccinations, cleaning, dog catching, and really really loving dogs. We have met some incredible people who care for and love animals as much as we do, that have made us feel so very much at home here in the jungles of Thailand.
Our mornings here have been wonderful waking up to elephants trumpeting and dogs barking, watching animals walk in freedom. From pigs, to elephants, to water buffalo, to chickens, they all have a safe place to live out their natural lives free from harm.
We have been welcomed into peoples homes and invited over for amazing burmese home cooking, gotten tattoos commemorating our time here, enjoyed more than one Mango vodka cranberry soda cocktail, and have truly enjoyed living in the jungle. We know how fortunate we are to have been asked to live here and be a part of such an amazing community.
This has been the last 6 months of our lives……..
It is time to move on.
Our plan is to volunteer at more shelters around Thailand, and to hopefully make a difference in more animals lives. Thank you to everyone who has made every day fun and full of laughter.
