Today’s day of sanctuary was sponsored by Don and Karen Young in honor of their granddaughter, Zoe’s, birthday! Zoe is 2 years old today and Don and Karen shared this special message about her:
“Zoe Young, daughter of Ryan and Helena Young, and our beautiful little grand daughter who wins the hearts of everyone she meets. She loves wild animals, domestic too, but her nursery was decorated with wild animals so she gravitates towards them. At 9 months, she would sit for hours and look at individual animal cards! She can make many animal sounds. One day we will take her to meet the Cle Elum Seven. A special birthday celebration for the chimps in honor of Zoe’s life.”
Happy Birthday, Zoe! We wish you the happiest of days! Don and Karen, thank you so much for holding the chimpanzees in your heart and including them in your family celebrations. What a wonderful gift your family has provided Zoe with by teaching her about all the amazing beings we share the earth with.
