Save the Chimps (STC) is the largest chimpanzee sanctuary in the world, with approximately 250 chimpanzees in their care. STC is a recognized leader in the field of chimpanzee care and is committed to continuing to provide loving care, specialized medical treatment, daily enrichment, and most importantly, companionship to more chimpanzees in need from research laboratories, entertainment, and the pet trade. STC does not receive government funding, and is supported through the generosity of their donors, foundation grants, special events, and their large, dedicated volunteer force. Caring for chimpanzees is very expensive, about $16,000 per year, per chimpanzee. Your generous donation will help us continue to provide exemplary care to the chimpanzees, including optimum nutrition, preventative and diagnostic veterinary care, and an enriching, naturalistic environment where they can thrive.
