At Chimpanzee Sanctuary Northwest, each of the chimpanzees have found their own personal happiness and comfort. Sometimes happiness comes in the form of an object like cowboy boots for Jamie or troll dolls for Foxie. Sometimes happiness comes in the form of an activity, like Burrito playing chase with his caregivers. For Missy, happiness is truly apparent when you see her sprinting outside on a crisp Autumn day. This morning she was in constant motion, a blur to catch on camera.
It seems proper that Missy is the star of today’s blog, because her story is also featured on our Great Apes Giving Day page (going on now!). We’ve just started the countdown for the last seven hours of the Great Apes Giving Day fundraising, with one chimp featured each hour. Be sure to follow us on Instagram and Twitter to see a highlight about each of the chimps.
