Personally, I’m having a difficult time with the fact that it’s already May, but I’m really happy for the Spring weather (at least today Cle Elum has Spring weather) and for Jody’s birthday on Sunday!! If you are subscriber to our e-newsletter, or if you’ve noticed our new Mother’s Day tribute page on our site, or if you’re a member of the Chimp Sanctuary Supporters social network, then you know that we are celebrating Jody’s birthday on Mother’s Day, which is this Sunday, May 10th.
A recent look at her file revealed that Jody had at least nine babies born to her and taken away from her during her years as a biomedical test subject. It’s hard to fathom. She deserves a big day of celebration focused on her favorite things (which today was a long blue sock), and that’s what we will give her. Thanks to those have already acknowledged her day and donated for Jody and the mothers in your lives.
