Yes, we finally have a new cooler! Thanks to the success of our crowdfunding campaign on LoveAnimals.org, we have been able to purchase and install a new second cooler for our fruits and veggies in our Animal Care Cottage. The cottage is where our daily food preparation for the gibbons takes place.
Prior to this spring, we did indeed own a trusty old cooler, and it did the job fine. But when Costco began donating truckloads of amazing produce to us every Tuesday, we knew we needed more space to store the weekly windfall. So we decided to ask for a little help via LoveAnimals.org.
Our crowdfunding campaign went very well: many, many thanks to all our wonderful supporters who contributed. In the end we reached 101% of our goal.
That meant we were able to purchase our new cooler pronto. We took delivery promptly, and although it was a bit of a squeeze getting the thing into the building, the installation went smoothly.
Now we’ll be able to keep the gibbons in chilled watermelon all summer long—thanks to Costco, and our wonderful supporters!
