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. 

2013 World Rabies Day Event

2013 World Rabies Day Event

Sacramento, CA.   What do a 3-month-old calf pastured next door to an ice cream parlor in Rhode Island, a kitten born to a barn cat in Colorado, and Bluetick/Walker Coonhound mix puppies for sale in Oklahoma have in common?  This summer, all of these animals exposed numerous people to rabies.  In each case, post-exposure treatment was necessary for every person who had contact with the rabid animals.  The rabid animals either died or were euthanized.  This all could have been prevented if the animals had been protected by rabies vaccination.

Rabies in people and their pets is rare here in the U.S.A., primarily because of the pet licensing and rabies vaccination requirements in most counties.  Nevertheless, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports approximately 6,000 cases of rabies in animals within the U.S.A.
