Joan O’Flaherty sponsored the gift of a day of sanctuary for the chimpanzees in memory of her parents, Ned and Noreen O’Flaherty, on their shared birthday.
“My parents loved animals and it is appropriate to mark their joint birthday by contributing to the care of cows and chimpanzees. Thanks to all at Cle Elum.”
Joan, thank you, for always sharing your parents’ legacy with the chimpanzees and bovines, and giving us the opportunity to celebrate something joyful and inspiring. We’ll be thinking of you all today.
And thank you for further adding to this special day as we celebrate Willy B’s 31st birthday! (Party in the works!)
Our sweet bovine family: Betsy, her son, Nutmeg, Meredith and her mama, Honey:
