Today’s day of sanctuary was sponsored by Don and Karen Young for their granddaughter, Heiwon Young, who turns 7 years old today! Don and Karen generously helped to make the chimpanzees’ 2-acre outdoor habitat, Young’s Hill, possible and we are grateful for their compassion and support of the chimps every single day. They shared the following sweet message about today:
“Heiwon is the daughter of Rob and Soo Mi Young, the sister of Helton Young, and our precious granddaughter. She is a Princess, loves animals, is a dancer and an extraordinary artist, but more importantly, she is a gentle, lovely, compassionate little girl.”
Don and Karen, thank you for keeping the chimpanzees in your hearts and sharing Heiwon’s special day with them.
Heiwon, how exciting to be turning 7 years old! We hope you have the happiest of days and thank you for sharing your 7th birthday with the Cle Elum 7!
Our beloved resident dancer, Foxie. (And for an oldie, but goodie, check out this video of Foxie dancing to the “Lord of the Dance” video).
