NMCF’s Chimpanzee Sanctuary Fund, supported by Animal Protection of New Mexico, celebrated landmark success in 2016, granting $248,000 to help 29 laboratory chimps reach sanctuary.

In 2017, the Chimpanzee Sanctuary Fund aims to double its impact and help some of the last chimp survivors of invasive testing reach the safety, peace, and dignity of sanctuary. Read the latest

This photo shows Bo, one of the first chimps from Alamogordo, New Mexico, to be retired to sanctuary after being subjected to testing for nearly 15 years. NMCF grantee, Chimp Haven, reported, “Bo, a handsome 33-year-old male, arrived at Chimp Haven just a few months ago, and he is adjusting well to his new life of retirement. Bo was a bit shy when he got here in October, but he has slowly come out of his shell and is starting to show off his personality. He and Gidgette were recently introduced to Cocoa and Ellie, and Bo seems to be enjoying his time with the three females.”
