GIVING DAY FOR APES – 6 days to go!
DOGUY is our one-eyed resident to whom we have dedicated this year’s GIVING DAY FOR APES campaign. Every single donation will help our sanctuary cover the different costs of this important surgery (cataract on his reamining eye!).
From the 16th of September on till D-Day of the GIVNG DAY FOR APES event(Sept.25) , we are going to tell you DOGUY’s story and how he faced eye issues. These are the different topics we have already talked about to introduce DOGUY:
1/ How DOGUY arrived at J.A.C.K.
2/ How DOGUY adjusted to his life at J.A.C.K.
3/ Beginning of DOGUY’s disease
Keep in mind that this huge fundraising event will give DOGUY the chance of not becoming blind.

D Day -6 / DOGUY, A VULNERABLE CHIMPANZEE
For about a year, DOGUY’s disease in the right eye didn’t progress and we were happy to see that, despite this handicap, DOGUY was living a normal chimpanzee life!
Unfortunately, the disease came back and no treatment helped curing the disease. This eye issue seemed to provide DOGUY with some discomfort which made him become a vulnerable member of the group. His strongest friends tried to bully him, but DOGUY had his Guardian Angel : ZAMBA!
Yes, ZAMBA had been DOGUY’s best friend since his quarantine period and she had been DOGUY’s protector and guide.
