THE STORY:

I wanted to help The Elephants living at the Sanctuary in Tenessee who are often recovering from poor care and abuse- I found out that they use Cosequin for joint and muscle support. You might give your dog or horse Cosequin.  So I went to Nutramax Laboratories -the manufacterers - and they agreed to help me help the elephants.

They will match up to ten containers of Cosequin with MSM (the type the elephants use) for every container we raise the money to purchase- effectively doubling the donations. 

More from the folks at the elephant sanctuary

"Since 1995, The Elephant Sanctuary has provided shelter to 24 retired elephants at a 2,700-acre refuge in Hohenwald, Tennessee. We have seen first-hand the tremendous toll a life of performing and traveling takes on an elephant’s health and well-being, and we have witnessed the elephants’ amazing capacity to recover, heal, and rehabilitate when provided a safe environment and individualized care.

By providing Cosequin daily, caregivers ensure the elephants have a better chance of maintaining healthy joints. This preventive measure just might stop the onset of the crippling inflammation and painful joint deterioration that plagues so many elephants kept in captivity.  Your donation will help underwrite this need.

Nutramax Laboratories Veterinary Sciences, Inc. – manufacturer of Cosequin – has agreed to help me help The Elephant Sanctuary! In honor of World Elephant Day, Nutramax will match up to ten containers of Cosequin with MSM (the type the elephants use) for every container we raise the money to purchase. The price is just shy of $150 each; my fundraising goal is $1500 so the elephants will get 20 containers – enough to cover all twelve elephants for six weeks!"
