Today’s day of sanctuary was sponsored by Birgit Neher in honor of her sister, Beate Neher! Birgit sent the following message about her sister:
“The day of sanctuary I chose is actually my sister’s, Beate’s, birthday. She is a wonderful person, very much involved in animal rescue here on the Big Island/Hawaii. She currently has 9 dogs, 4 goats, a sheep, two donkeys, a former milk cow and I can’t remember how many cats.”
Birgit, what a thoughtful and generous way to honor your sister, Beate! We are really touched that you would include the chimpanzees in your celebration of Beate’s special day. Beate, all of us here at Chimpanzee Sanctuary Northwest wish you Happy Birthday and hope you have a wonderful day! Thank you so much for all that you do for animals, it makes us happy to know you are out there helping so many beings.
Negra, enjoying the comforts and home, sanctuary, and her nest:
