Primates More Comfortable at the Folsom Zoo Thanks to La-Z-Boy Owners

Primates More Comfortable at the  Folsom Zoo Thanks to La-Z-Boy Owners

Two small primates named Darwin and Wallace will spend their days a little more comfortably thanks to Jim and Liz Reego, owners of the La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries.  The Reegos, whose daughter Grace volunteered at the Zoo this past summer, recently donated $2,500 to the Folsom City Zoo Sanctuary to provide a more safe and enriching living space for the adorable macaques.  

"Grace came home after her shift at the Zoo and told us about Wallace who suffers from epilepsy and often falls suddenly," said Liz Reego, "We all decided that we wanted to help him have a more comfortable and safe life.  Since we don't make recliners quite that small, we asked the Zoo what could be done."

The upgrades will include demolishing old man-made rocks, adding sand for them to play in as well as installing more play and climbing structures for both macaques, who have been at the zoo for a long time, to enjoy.

Local community challenged to #EmptySacShelters over the course of one weekend

Sacramento, CA (October 14, 2013)—Later this week, shelters from around the country will collaboratively attempt to place thousands of homeless animals into new homes over the course of just one weekend for the ASPCA’s Mega Match-a-thon initiative.

Four local animal shelters have joined the initiative and are calling on the Sacramento community to #EmptySacShelters from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday, October 18 to Sunday, October 20.

The local effort, aptly named the Empty Our Shelters Project, will provide individuals and families the opportunity to be a part of something big by helping to end homelessness for animals found in shelters. That weekend, participating local animal shelters will allow Sacramentans to adopt any animal from any shelter for just $20!

Participating shelters include:
