Dear Friend of Jungle Friends,

Jungle Friends interns, Mimi and Shira, are kicking off their rubber boots and going 'formal' to our VIP (Very Important Primate) Jungle Jamboree. So, if any of you are looking for an excuse to get all decked out, you got it! And for those of you who are in Gainesville so you would never have to dress up, no worries, all attire is welcome at the Jungle Jamboree!

We have some great news...Loving Hut is not only providing all of the scrumptious vegan food for the Jamboree - David and Kieu Tran, coordinators of Loving Hut Orlando, are also offering a FREE vegan cooking class Saturday October 1, right here at the sanctuary. There will be limited space so Please RSVP. (The event was sucessful and has concluded.)

Thank you so much to all of you who have donated for Brandy's medical bills helping with her recovery. Your generosity, compassion and prayers for Brandy have meant so much to me. Brandy goes back to the vet today for more blood tests and I will keep you posted on how she is doing. Brandy is such a special dog and has been at the sanctuary for nearly 12 years!

We have been asked to accept another monkey in dire need! A roadside zoo in Arizona is bankrupt and there are three monkeys in a desperate situation. One lone capuchin who is in a small, dirty barren cage needs our help. If you can make a substantial donation or help with transportation from Arizona to Florida, please contact me ASAP!

A very special THANK YOU to Lynn & Karen, Jody, Gail & Mark, Eve, Angie, Chris and Mary Anne! Without your 'emergency money' we would not have a new walk-in, generator and propane tank! The wheels are in motion and we expect to have everything in place by the end of the month. No more spoiled produce and we'll have full power when a storm hits, whew!

And a heartfelt thanks to Claude and Shannon, who are probably the only people I know willing to tread through the sewage when the septic tank was stopped up, yuck - and Shannon smiling all the while.

WOW, not only do I have over 100 monkeys to give meaning to my life, I know all the best people. I am so lucky!

Lots of monkey love,
Kari and the monks
