callot-medicalKeeping several hundred chimpanzees healthy through a preventative healthcare program and treating such conditions as heart disease, diabetes, hypertension and arthritis, is more than a full-time job. The well-being of every individual is something we strive for every day!

YOUR donation to our 2017 Annual Fund Campaign will allow us to continue providing healthcare to our Sanctuary residents and may have a significant impact on other chimpanzees as well.

Save the Chimps is becoming a world leader in chimpanzee veterinary healthcare thanks to you. We are collaborating with primate experts around the globe to share information about conditions, diagnostics, and state-of-the-art medical treatments.

Please support our 2017 Annual Fund Campaign today.

As the Senior Veterinarian at Save the Chimps, I see the impact of your generosity every single day. Your support allows us to shed new light on serious health threats such as heart disease which is the leading cause of death in male captive chimpanzees, but is rarely reported in the wild.

Other medical conditions that affect the chimpanzees include arthritis, strokes, hypertension and renal disease. A significant percentage of the chimpanzees at Save the Chimps are growing older and advancing age brings with it geriatric health issues. Most of the chimps spent years confined in laboratories used as research subjects and that too has had a major impact on their health. The more cutting edge medical care we can provide, the more we can help give them longer, happier lives at their sanctuary home!

Your Annual Fund gift today will help to provide:

And now, we are about to embark on the next phase of our Sanctuary veterinary care!

Save the Chimps is in the planning stages of a comprehensive Chimpanzee Care Center — a world-class veterinary facility at the Sanctuary, with state-of-the-art equipment to address the various diseases and other threats to the chimps’ health.

Like everything we do at Save the Chimps, providing healthcare is a labor of love. Every chimpanzee is a unique individual with his and her own needs. A specialized healthcare plan is designed for each chimp – just as your doctor would do for you.

Your gift to our Annual Fund Campaign helps make this happen!

Thank you, as always, for your friendship and support.
