In Zimbabwe, Africa, an orphaned monkey named Horace has learned to make friends with any animal he meets.
Horace lost his birth mother when he was very young, and so was sent to the Twala Trust Animal Sanctuary.
“He came to us when he was very young,” Sarah Carter, founder of the Twala Trust Animal Sanctuary in Zimbabwe, said. “His mom had been hit by a car on a very busy highway. He was found sitting on her body, on the side of the road. He’s lucky that he got picked up by the right person, who then brought him here.”
Upon his arrival, the sanctuary was unfortunately short-staffed. Without enough personnel to devote individual rehabilitation to each rescued species, the team decided to raise all of its newly rescued orphans together. In the process, these orphaned animals grew to completely love one another: cats, dogs, deer, monkeys, and so on.
The bonds this particular group of mismatched animals formed early on at the sanctuary have carried on unshaken, even as new animals of each of their particular species have since arrived at the facility.
Horace and his friends love to cuddle and explore and live their lives together.
Happy Monkday :_)
