DOUBLE DOWN FOR CHIMPS!
Thanks to advocates like you, government agencies have acknowledged that chimpanzees—our closest relatives in the animal kingdom—should not be subjected to invasive research. Thank you for speaking out! But it’s not over yet. Now the chimps formerly used in research desperately need a place other than a lab to call home.
AAVS started the BUILD IT! Campaign for that reason: to fund construction of NEW space at sanctuaries. Chimp Haven, the designated sanctuary for chimps from government labs, is the beneficiary of our 2018 Campaign. Over 200 chimps still housed in research facilities should be transferred to Chimp Haven, but space isn’t available for all of them—yet.
You can make a difference for all those chimps still in labs. And thanks to the extraordinary generosity of an anonymous donor, all gifts made to BUILD IT! will be matched dollar-for-dollar. Your $10 gift will become $20! A $50 gift increases to $100! And a $250 donation doubles to $500!
Along with a new home, your support will also ensure that these chimpanzees will enjoy a rich and nutritious diet filled with a variety of fruits and vegetables, expert-level veterinary care, and multi-acre forested habitats where they can learn species-typical behaviors like tool use and climbing. Their lives will be filled with choice, compassion and stimulation that can only be found in sanctuary.
AAVS’s mission isn’t complete until all animals in labs are free. Working together, we can build a brighter future for animals who deserve a wonderful retirement.
