The chimps at the sanctuary are rescues from the entertainment and biomedical industries. Since being rescued, they've thrived and formed terrific social bonds with each other in their new, enriched home.
Spring is just over a week away, even though it might not feel like it. But the clocks turned forward yesterday and crocuses and daffodils are starting to bloom. We're getting lots of new spring items in as well. We now carry Vegetarian Shoes, a shoe company from England. Lur Apparel arrived last week too. They recycle pre-consumer apparel waste and turn it into amazing clothing!

We're offering 10% discounts on everything in the store and we'll donate 10% of the day's totals to Days for Girls, an org that empowers girls and women around the world by providing sustainable feminine hygiene products.
