WELCOME TO THE LUCKY SIX!
We are overjoyed to welcome six more chimpanzees to the Chimpanzee Sanctuary Northwest. This social group of six came from the now-closed Wildlife Waystation outside of Los Angeles and arrived on June 26th. The journey from California to Washington was uneventful and they eagerly began exploring their new sanctuary home as soon as they arrived.
With Honey B, Willy B, and Mave's rescue in 2019, we now are caring for nine chimpanzees from Wildlife Waystation. There are still 26 chimpanzees remaining who will be going to other accredited sanctuaries. Thank you to everyone who has supported their second chance and who continues to follow the Chimpanzees in Need campaign.
Stay tuned for a Down to Earth documentary special with Dagmar Midcap of NBC San Diego about the journey to sanctuary for Cy, Lucky, Gordo, Rayne, Terry, and Dora and follow our daily blog for updates as we learn about the unique personalities of everyone in this special group.
My life is enriched by supporting these chimps. I have come to know them and love each one individually –– all through the internet. The caretakers are brilliant and loving. They update the supporters via blog posts, photos, and videos of our chimp friends. It is the most fun I have ever had donating to a charity.
I cannot undo what's been done to captive chimpanzees, but I can join other caring people in ensuring they have a loving place to call home for the remainder of their days.
Thank you all for having such vision, determination, wisdom, and hearts so big that they can hold the lives of seven amazing chimpanzees so close and dear. The Cle Elum Seven have changed me. I am grateful. I have been changed for good.

In place of a wordy update, I’m just going to upload some photos I’ve taken of the sanctuary residentsContinue Reading
