Sissy

The Sanctuary celebrated the birthdays of two Asian elephants in January! Sissy, who retired to The Sanctuary in 2000, turned 52 on January 26 and Minnie, who retired in 2006, turned 54 on January 31.

“Sissy shows such perseverance and bravery each day. You can see her face change as she sets her sights on something she wants and decides to conquer it. She also seems to find joy in the little things, like waking up from a nap and reuniting with Shirley and Tarra or coming back to the barn after spending some time outside.” - Kaitlin S., Lead Caregiver at Asia Barn

Elephant Minnie
Minnie

"Minnie is sassy, independent, and a wild soul. She ventures up hills and into creeks, rain or shine. She also often chooses to spend time outside the barn at night, exploring the expanses of her habitat." - Brandi R., Lead Caregiver at Q Barn
