This agency is the best they involve clients and the public in activities and their newsletter is the best. I especially love the giving days when they request a certain item of need. Although money is greatly appreciated by this organization they allow and encourage donations of supplies and food stuffs. I feel attached when I know I am giving something they really need. This past request was for items in a kit and then they showed us pictures of the kits put together. I know where my gift went and I really felt like I accomplished something for the great chimps at Chimp Haven. The best experience of giving ever.
A fantastic organization that for over a decade has done stellar work on behalf of chimpanzees that so dearly need an advocate. Top-notch care is provided to chimps retired from research laboratories who have given so much to humankind. The very best chimpanzee sanctuary in the country.
Such a special mission to provide the chimps a healthy and happy environment. The staff truly provide TLC to well deserving animals.
Chimp Haven is the most amazing place to visit and view rescued chimpanzees. The chimpanzees are so well cared for and nurtured. Chimp Haven makes it possible for all of us to give back to these incredible creatures.
Chimp Haven is an incredible place for chimpanzees! As a former intern, I got to see first hand how much the staff at this sanctuary respect, adore, and appreciate the animals in their care. Keep up the excellent work, Chimp Haven!
Love this organization and how they help the chimps
Chimp Haven has been an incredibly positive force in the lives of over 200 chimpanzees, and I as well. Both a donor and a former intern, I have seen and heard firsthand of the wonderful things this facility accomplishes every day. The staff are pioneers in their fields and work diligently to ensure that all of the sanctuary's residents are well-taken care of and happy. I will continue to praise Chimp Haven for all that they have done and all that they will continue to do in the future.
When there were so few humane solutions to an unspeakably cruel practice, Chimp Haven has developed, maintained, and expanded a marvelous haven for abused and tortured primates. People of huge hearts and great efforts have brought quality lives to these poor, damaged beings. It breaks my heart to think of their lives prior to Chimp Haven and it fills my heart to witness their compassion and hard work.
I have been to Chimp Haven several times. The care and respect shown for the chimpanzees is spectacular. So honored to have this facility in my home state of Louisiana.
Wonderful folks taking care of these beautiful animals...I have been a supporter of Chimphaven for many years and will continue to do all I can to help!!!
if it were not for chimp haven, I have no idea where these beautiful creatures would have ended up. bless them and all that they do
I worked in the teaching hospital near Chimp Haven when it opened. I was acutely aware of the use of animals in medical testing and from the beginning, I was filled with a respect for this facility that grants these magnificent creatures the dignity and peace they deserve. I have followed Chimp Haven's growth and development throughout the years as I relocated around the US, and it fills me with pride to watch the dedication these wonderful people have for the chimpanzees, the quality of life given to the chimps and the the expansion of the mission tp wprk with other programs.
People who make it their mission to help these deserving animals finally achieve the peace and retirement they deserve!
Wonderful how they take care of the retired chimpanzees.
The discovery days are a great way to see and learn what all they do at Chimp Haven.
Excellent facility with dedicated and friendly staff!
I was an intern with Chimp Haven in the summer of 2015 and it was absolutely amazing. The level of care they provide to these Chimps is exceptional.
Have followed their fantastic work with these beautiful animals online. It is my dream to one day visit. Thank you so much for giving these wonderful animals a chance to enjoy life.
Chimp Haven provides a variety of outdoor and indoor areas to their retired chimpanzees. Each day the chimps are provided with choices in space, diet, play and socialization. This is a wonderful sanctuary that has merited several prestigious accreditations and holds their animal care to the highest standards.
I was able to intern with Chimp Haven under the enrichment department during Summer 2015. I can honestly say my internship was one of the greatest experiences of my life. The staff is so kind and supportive of each other, the interns, and the chimpanzees. There is such a loving and respectful atmosphere!
I will always feel both amazed and blessed that I was able to be apart of Chimp Haven and their mission to give retired chimpanzees a great life. I got to leave my mark, by installing climbing structures in Habitat 2, and I hope the chimpanzees will enjoy it for many years to come.
I'll forever be appreciative to the staff for their role in my internship. But, more importantly, I'll always be appreciative to the chimpanzees for teaching me what cannot be learned in a classroom.
If you ever get a chance to visit Chimp Haven during their public days, or even better, can intern with them, definitely do! You will leave a changed human.
Thank you to the staff for everything you do to respect and care for the resident chimpanzees!!
