Chimp Haven is a unique organization working to provide a humane, cost-effective environment for the lifetime care of chimpanzees no longer needed in medical research, entertainment or as pets.
Chimpanzees are highly intelligent and form life-long family bonds. They are genetically similar to humans and have served as research models for the biomedical research industry. As a result, humans have received the benefits of lifesaving vaccines and medical therapies. The challenge has been where to place them for long-term care—especially those that have been used in infectious disease studies.
Focusing solely on the welfare of the chimpanzees, Chimp Haven provides for the retirement of these deserving individuals and assures that their social, long-term care and health needs are met.
