Today was sponsored by Kerrie Wooten, in memory of her friend, Lassen Pig. Kerrie shared a very touching story about Lassen:
“I first met Lassen Pig on July 1, 2004 when I interned at Farm Sanctuary in Orland, CA. He was a young, happy, sometimes cranky, spoiled pig and I grew to love and appreciate his personality. In 2006 I began working at the sanctuary and I was thrilled to be helping to take care of Lassen every day. Last year, on October 4, 2012 (the day after my birthday) we said goodbye to Lassen – he was a little old man, but I still saw the young, spry pig I’d first met years before. My wish is to honor the memory of my dear friend by helping the chimps, who deserve to have a joyous, fulfilling, carefree life the way Lassen did.”
Kerrie, this is such a sweet and generous gift! Thank you so much for helping to give Lassen, and the chimps, wonderful lives.
