GIVING DAY FOR APES – 2 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 remaining 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
4/Doguy a vulnerable chimpanzee
Keep in mind that this huge fundraising event will give DOGUY the chance of not becoming blind.

D Day -2 / Doguy, one-eyed chimpanzee
As mentionned yesterday, DOGUY underwent a huge surgery in September 2017: the removal of his right eye! We are extremely lucky DOGUY is a very easy going chimpanzee and that he didn’t touch his wound and let it heal without any problems.
When he went back into his group, some of his friends immediately noticed something in his face had changed! .
DOGUY ajusted to his new life very quickly and enjoyed having BF ZAMBA still around! Since then, DOGUY had a normal life again among others of his own kind! We were all very happy for him!
