The Sanctuary Celebrates Shirley's 71st Birthday

In celebration of Shirley's 71st birthday and 20th year at The Sanctuary, Shirley was presented with a vegan cake made from applesauce, cinnamon, and carrots and topped with bananas, one of her favorites. Caregivers placed the cake on a bed of hay for her to discover, along with a festive “71” constructed of bamboo. Tarra joined the party in the habitat and was greeted by welcoming trunk touches from Shirley.

The Sanctuary’s Staff share their love and admiration for Shirley—join us in wishing the happiest of birthdays to one incredible elephant!
