Animal Rescue Groups Seek Christmas Tree Donations
HOHENWALD, Tenn. (WKRN) — Two animal rescue groups in Middle Tennessee are asking for donations of real Christmas trees that may otherwise be thrown away after the holidays.
The Elephant Sanctuary in Hohenwald says the trees will be used as food for its elephants. The non-profit says the trees must not have been treated with chemicals or pesticides
The sanctuary sits on more than 2,000 acres of land and gives retired zoo and circus elephants a place to live out the rest of their lives.
According to its website, elephants eat as much as 150 pounds of plant material each day.
