We are so fortunate to have two sponsors for this day of sanctuary for the chimpanzees! Laura Gargano is starting the day off in celebration of her mother, Dorothy Gargano, for her birthday! Laura shared this special message about today:
“My mother has always had a love for gorillas and chimps and this helps highlight the plight of so many chimps who still live in labs around the world.”
Laura, this is such an inspired and compassionate way to honor your mother. Thank you so much for making a difference in the chimpanzees’ lives while bringing awareness to all those who are still awaiting their own day of sanctuary.
Dorothy, thank you for sharing your own special day, as well as your passion for great apes, with all of us. We hope you have the most beautiful of birthdays!
