Today was sponsored by our two friends, Dawn Garcia and Jo Arroyo, in honor of three more friends who share January birthdays: Lynn Williamson, long-time chimp house (and event and tabling!) volunteer, the late Dr. Mel Richardson, former veterinary to the chimpanzees, and our much beloved guy, Burrito!
“Happy Birthday dear chimpanzee friends and Mr B fans!”
Thanks so much, Dawn and Jo, for celebrating these three special individuals and all they have, and continue to bring, to the lives at the sanctuary and beyond.
Happy Birthday, Lynn! Thank you so much for the difference you make for so many with your kind heart. We’re so lucky to have you as part of our chimp family.
Dr. Mel, your spirit and legacy continue to make a lasting difference in the lives of so many and you are greatly missed.
Burrito, our lives wouldn’t be the same without you. Every. single. day we’re so grateful you were born and that we have the privilege of knowing, and caring for, your resilient, goofy, strong, endearing self.
