Rafiki is 7 months old, and was part of a group of animals, (not a circus) no longer needed in a traveling animal show. Due to space requirements and nutritional problems the animals were left in the care of another facility to help find permanent homes for them.

Along with Rafiki there was also a bear and a baboon that also found a forever sanctuary to live out their lives.

We welcome Rafiki with open hearts and joy! To watch this baby boy grow will absolutely be one of the biggest rewards we will experience.
