Long-time friend of the chimpanzees, Rachel Ruggeri, sponsored this beautiful summer day of sanctuary in an inspiring celebration of her birthday:
“Today marks my 51st birthday and there is no way I’d rather celebrate than to honor my friends (chimpanzee and bovine) at the sanctuary. I take great comfort knowing that all of the animals at the sanctuary are living their best lives. That gives me hope and right now…that is what we all need.”
Happy Birthday, Rachel! Thank you so much for helping us fill all our days with the celebration of hope to be found in each day. We’re so grateful to you for all the good you help surround the chimps and bovines with. All of us here hope your day of celebration is a heart-filled one of joy and wonder.
