Nike, Samantha's Birthday & Monkey Business!

December 15, 2011

Dear Friend of Jungle Friends,

Many of you know my goofy old dog, Nike, and for those of you who do not know Nike - she is one of the Jungle Friends rescue dogs and just may be the sweetest dog you will ever meet! Nike has 6 ruptured discs in her spine and requires special medication.

She has had several steroid treatments when she could not walk without assistance. The injections have worked very well. However, the last time I took her to the vet because she was having trouble walking, the blood tests revealed that Nike was in ‘mild' renal failure!

Nike was able to receive a reduced steroid treatment and is now walking again, whew! Lulu and Jackie are both very happy Nike is on the mend. Keep Nike in your thoughts and if you are able, please make a donation to our Memorial Medical Fund.

Don't forget about Samantha's big day! She turns 19 next Sunday and is looking forward to opening more gifts. We already gave her one of her gifts - Sammy says,"Thanks Gayle - nuts are my favorite, how did you know?"

The Birthday Bash will be here at the sanctuary on Sunday, the 18th at 4 pm, there will be a vegan lunch, provided by Loving Hut and we will be decorating our Christmas Tree. Be sure to RSVP! If you can't make it, just send gifts!

For those of you who are not on our mailing list, you can view and print out our latest Monkey Business newsletter from our website! Read about what has happened over the past year and get an update on Timmy and Dylan. Be sure to email us your mailing address, so you do not miss out!

For every new monkey sponsorship or upgraded sponosorship, we are offering our 2012 Monkey Calendar, so become a Monkey Sponsor Today!

Lots of monkey love,
Kari and the monks

P.S. Please consider making a substantial donation to Jungle Friends as you are sending out year-end donations, the sanctuary exists only through the generosity of our loyal supporters!
