Recently, our chimpanzee “playroom” received an extreme makeover! New windows were installed, ceiling tiles were replaced, and an amazing mural was painted by two talented volunteers. Veteran Volunteer Retta Ritchie-Holbrook and her friend Shannon Johnson took a vision we had and made it more amazing than we could have ever imagined. We would also like to thank Sherwin-Williams in Nicholasville for their generosity and support of this project.  

You can visit  our Facebook page at to see video of the chimp's reaction to their new mural.
