Today’s day of sanctuary was sponsored by Joan O’Flaherty in memory of her parents, Ned and Noreen. Although Ned and Noreen were born 2 years apart, they shared the same birthdate of March 1st. Ned and Noreen also shared a great love for animals and their environment, and valued the conservation of both. Joan generously sponsors this day each year in honor of her parents because she feels they would have loved the chimpanzees.
Joan, thank you so much! We are so touched that you include the chimpanzees in such a special memory and it makes us happy to think that your parents still get to be a part of the sanctuary and providing a forever home for the chimpanzees.
Good friends, Burrito (left) and Foxie (right), enjoying each others’ company:
