Sarah was seven years old when she arrived at Jungle Friends at the end of May 2003. She was the oldest of three sisters who came to the sanctuary together.

Sarah and her sister Anna Claire were both diabetic. Sarah and Anna Claire quickly responded to the Jungle Friends environment, and with a controlled diet, low stress, and plenty of exercise, both girls' diabetes came under control. Katie Scarlett, the youngest sister, is blind, but the way she navigates the habitat, you would never know it!

Sarah, unlike the more deliberate Anna Claire, was a little speed demon. She was constantly in one runway or another visiting with the neighbor monkeys, or climbing up and down on the wood perches that run all around the habitat. She especially enjoyed visiting with the retired laboratory monkeys who have a habitat right next door. Those boys also seem quite interested in the beautiful sisters.

Sarah spent her days romping and playing with Anna Claire and Katie Scarlett. She loved swinging on ropes and jumping in and out of hammocks and barrels. At night the three girls all snuggled up together in their blankets for a good nights' sleep.
