Dying puppy is nursed back to life with the help of some loving chimpanzees

Jenny and Jim Desmond know a thing or two about saving animals; they run the Liberia Chimpanzee Rescue in West Africa.

When Jenny was driving along the streets of a remote village in Liberia one day she spotted a tiny fur baby in dire need of help.

Jenny and her husband provided Snafu with the medical attention she needed at the sanctuary after they drove the dying puppy back.

They kept a close eye on Snafu, uncertain if she would survive, not only because she was starving, but also because she had infections and worms.

  • The couple decided she was ready to meet the other sanctuary residents once her eyes became brighter and her skin began to improve.They had no idea how well she would get along with the rest of the residents.

The chimpanzees immediately fell in love with Snafu and not only loved her and helped her but were always on hand to be her fun playmates.

As Snafu got bigger and stronger the chimpanzees continued to keep an eye on her but could no longer cuddle this cute pup as they had done.

  • Snafu was adopted by her nieces in Colorado after she had fully recovered.A sanctuary that cares and some loving chimpanzees have helped her to find a loving home with two sisters and a mom and dad she adores.The clip below shows Snafu’s incredible journey and the friends she meets along the way.
