With extremely cold weather hitting their home in northern India, the 20 elephants who live at the Wildlife SOS are keeping warm with Jumbo Jackets knit by animal lovers in the area. The pachyderms who live at the center are blind, disabled or recovering from abuse, and their rescuers want to ensure they don’t have to endure any more discomfort.

“It is important to keep our elephants protected from the bitter cold during this extreme winter, as they are weak and vulnerable having suffered so much abuse,”said Kartick Satyanarayan, Co-founder & CEO of Wildlife SOS, in a statement. Thanks to the kindness of the villagers, they’ll stay warm and cozy during the cold spell. — Read it at People Pets
