Adopt a Chimp for $300.00 

The cost to care for a chimp is $16,000 per year.  By symbolically adopting a chimp, your donation of $300 or $25/month will provide one week of care for your adopted chimp.  This complete care includes three fresh and nutritious meals of fruits and vegetables daily, loving care from the staff, medical care from our veterinarians, maintenance of the their beautiful island homes, and enrichment activities to fulfill their lives.  Adopting a chimp also makes the perfect unique gift to a fellow primate for any occasion!

The adoption packet includes a certificate, biography, update, and a beautiful portrait suitable for framing. 

Among the chimps available for adoption are Garfield a large, handsome, dignified alpha with appetite to match; Rufus, who, at 47, is the elder statesman of the group—and an inspiration to all; Scarlett, whose years in a research lab left her depressed and withdrawn, but whose time at the sanctuary has put a smile on her face; and Melody, the youngest and most rambunctious of the group.

You can help to make sure the chimps have healthy, balanced and flavorful meals every day.  All of the chimps eat three meals per day of fresh fruits and vegetables. Variety is the spice of life so the menu changes daily.

Feeding over 250 chimps translates into approximately 1925 lbs of apples, 2520 lbs of bananas, 840 lbs of oranges, 980 lbs of tomatoes and so on, per week – for an annual food bill of over $350,000.
