Happy 40th birthday to Queen Negra!! The Cle Elum Seven were rescued five years ago today!! You can help celebrate by donating to these amazing, inspirational beings by clicking here.
The first photo is from when Negra first arrived (Jamie is also pictured) and the lovely photos displayed after are what Negra looks like now :)
The perseverance these seven persons have shown through their willingness to try again at life, and even to form new relationships with humans, is absolutely incredible. They hold a special place in my heart.
