Jumbo Jacuzzi! After suffering years of cruelty, Phoolkali the elephant enjoys a treat at a super-sized spa

It’s absolutely the most important thing in spas, darling – and designed to care for abused elephants.

One such beneficiary of the giant jet pool is Phoolkali, who looks at peace with the world while being soothed by cooling water.

The 67-year-old, whose name means flower bud, is blind in one eye and weak in her legs after decades of begging on the streets for her previous owners.

She is one of hundreds of animal patients at India’s first elephant hospital in Agra, near the Taj Mahal.

The complex features a large hydrotherapy pool to relieve pain, and the latest mobile X-ray equipment, ultrasound and laser therapy are put to good use by experienced veterinarians to diagnose and treat fractures and wounds.

‘The elephants love the pool so much. You can see tears of joy in their eyes after years of cruelty,” said Kartick Satyanarayan, chief executive of the charity Wildlife SOS, which runs the hospital with the help of donations from Britain.

The charity was founded in 1995, when a group of individuals determined to preserve India’s rich natural heritage began operating a rescue center from a small garage in New Delhi.

According to the charity’s website, their goal was simple: to help wildlife in need and extend India’s core value of the right to freedom and dignity to the realm of animals.

Today, the charity has evolved to actively protect India’s precious wildlife, conserve habitats, study biodiversity, conduct research and create alternative and sustainable livelihoods for former poaching communities, or communities who hunt for their livelihoods depend on wildlife.

It is the largest wildlife rescue organization in India and runs twelve wildlife rescue centers across the country.
