Jenny and Jim Desmond are aware of how to save animals. They lead Liberia Chimpanzee Rescue in West Africa. One day, as Jenny drove through the streets of a remote Liberian village, she spotted a tiny fur baby in need of urgent help.
She took the dying puppy, named Snafu, to the sanctuary, where Jenny and her husband gave her medical attention. But Snafu was in bad shape. Not only was she hungry, but she was also suffering from infections and worms, so they kept her under control not knowing if she would survive.
In a few days, her eyes cleared and her skin improved. The couple decided to introduce Snafu to the other residents at the shelter. They had no idea how well she would fit in with the other residents.
The chimps immediately fell in love with Snafu. They not only loved and helped her, but were always her playmates. As Snafu grew older and stronger, the chimps continued to care for her, but they could no longer cuddle the adorable youngster as they had before.
When Snafu was fully recovered, Jenny found her a forever home with her nieces in Colorado. She is now in a loving home with two sisters and a very loving mom and dad. All thanks to a caring shelter and some loving chimps.
Watch Snafu’s incredible journey and the friends he makes along the way in the clip below.
