My mom, Ella & I had the rare privilege of visiting The Fauna Foundation, a non profit Chimpanzee sanctuary whose primary objective is the rescue and care of chimpanzees who have been used in medical research 😥
We wanted to make a difference in these chimps lives, so Ella & Chase each chose a chimp that we would help moving forward as much as we could. Here are our chimps
1) Petra born February 24, 1988. She was 9 when she arrived at Fauna after spending the first years of her life in a lab being used in anorexia studies. Forced to endure unimaginable torture of body and mind. She was traumatized, mistreated, frightened and going insane. Life in a sanctuary saved her — but the effects of her tragic beginnings will always linger.
2) Chance was born Sept 13, 1989. She was 15 when she arrived at Fauna. For the first 15 years of her life she lived completely alone in a very small baboon cage in a laboratory. She was so deprived and her spirit destroyed. She was aggressive, distrustful, suspicious, very shy and so terribly scared. Once she found life in sanctuary, she essentially was reborn. However, she was reborn with scars, trauma and deep emotional wounds
The Furballs love Road Dogs & Rescue. They always have the most adorable dogs - many of which are Special Needs, or in really bad shape when they rescue them. They help transform lives❤️. We got Wellington his big boy wheels and look at him today 😊Show them some love and follow them @roadogs @adventuresofwellyandhiggy #adoptdontshop
Introducing our newest Furballs member, Ben a rescue Chinchilla 💙We did not plan to get a new pet but when I got a phone call Thursday night, I just couldn't say no. Ben is 6 and he was rescued from an animal hoarder, who was severely mistreating his animals. He and his brother were very neglected and his brother actually died right before Ben was rescued 😰. He is the sweetest the little thing and we are so happy that we can give him the life he deserves 😊
