Amy wants her friends to move to Project Chimps!
MATCHING GIFT ALERT!
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.
Project Chimps in Georgia will be the beneficiary of this year’s Campaign. Project Chimps has already begun the process of transferring over 220 chimps from the New Iberia Research Center (NIRC), a facility that maintains the largest population of privately-owned chimpanzees in the nation. There are still 150 chimps at NIRC—moving them is dependent upon construction of additional facilities. Project Chimps plans to build three new habitats, which will include unique features and structures that promote autonomy and free movement. But they need funding.
You can make a difference for all those chimps still in labs. And thanks to the extraordinary generosity of anonymous donors, all gifts made to BUILD IT! will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $25,000. 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.
