It is so heart warming to know there is a great sanctuary available to provide a beautiful home for the hundreds of chimpanzees who were rescued from bio-medical labs. THANK YOU SAVE THE CHIMPS!

I was first told about Save the Chimps from a friend of mine who lives in Colorado. I discovered that the sanctuary was only 30 minutes from my home town in Florida. I couldn't wait to see if they would accept volunteers. That was over a year ago and I've been helping out at Save the Chimps ever since. I'll never forget the first day I was taken to see some of the residents. Looking into the eyes of Ron, a chimp who shares the same name as my dad - well, he had a thoughtful look that was irresistible to me. And Ron had been subject to terrible treatment in his past. Never would have known it from looking at him in his peaceful Florida home. Here's to Save the Chimps! Can't wait to get back and help make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches again soon!
