Missy and Foxie played a long game of chase this morning. Later, Jody joined in, in her own unique way.

Jody’s not the only chimpanzee doing yoga around here…
Negra’s not the most active chimpanzee by a long shot, but she was all over the place yesterday. Here she is looking out her new window (the photos through the glass turn out blue, so I doctored it a bit. I like the reflection of the clouds).
I love this expression!
She even investigated some enrichment, which she rarely does:
Here’s a pretty cute video I caught yesterday with Missy and Burrito playing. Just before this (and before I had a chance to get the camera) Missy had covered herself (head and all) with a pink blanket, and was chasing Burrito around the playroom. She looked like a pink snuffaluffagus! 🙂
The English Hill Walking Group held a garage sale and decided to donate their earnings to charity. Walking group member Jennifer Douglas is a CSNW supporter and volunteer at the sanctuary, so she chose to Sponsor-a-Day on behalf of the group and in memory of two canine members who have passed away, Angel Douglas and Sally Bishop.
So, thank you Jennifer and the English Hill Walking Group for your generosity and, no doubt, for providing a good life full of walks for Angel and Sally.
Our grand total raised for our 2nd Anniversary Fundraising was
This surpassed our ultimate goal by $7561 and that means we will be installing FOUR more picture windows – the three originally planned between the playroom and the outdoor area and one more from the playroom overlooking the garden.
Big, big thank yous go to every single person who donated to the sanctuary between March 17th and June 13th. We had about 500 donations during the fundraising drive and every donation helped us surpass our goal!
Special thanks to Karen and Don Young for the $7,500 in matching donations and the Hugh and Jane Ferguson Foundation and Tony Stewart Foundation for their $5,000 grants.
And (drumroll, please…)
Congrats and thanks to:
1) Tamela, who raised $2,391 (and counting!) through her T-Arts Etsy store full of one-of-a-kind jewelry and other wonderful hand-crafted ape pieces.
2) Felicity Wood, who raised $1,465 through her friends and family (and herself) by asking them to give to the sanctuary for her birthday
3) Leslie Sodaro, who donated $1,200 during the three months of the fundraising, giving generously on top of her regular monthly donations
