Adopt a Chimp for $300.00

The annual cost to care for a chimpanzee is $20,000. While you can sponsor a chimp for a year through our ALPHA page and support his or her care, you can also “adopt” for a smaller donation of $300. $300 helps provide a chimp with complete care which includes three fresh, healthy meals of fruits and vegetables, loving daily care from specially-trained staff, and medical care from our veterinarians. Your $300 donation helps us to maintain your chimp’s beautiful island home and provide the many enrichment toys and activities that fulfill their lives. Adopting a chimp of your choosing also makes the perfect unique gift for a friend or loved one for any occasion!

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

Please note that you can also adopt a chimp with a $25/month commitment, which will automatically renew each year.

Adoptable chimps include Garfield, a handsome, dignified, and powerful male with an appetite to match; Rufus, who is the elder statesman of his family group—and an inspiring leader of his troop; and Melody, the youngest and most rambunctious of her family.

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

Feeding nearly 250 chimpanzees translates into nearly 2000 pounds of apples, more than 2500 pounds of bananas, 840 pounds of oranges, almost 1000 pounds of tomatoes and so on, each week – for an annual food bill of over $350,000. But your gift will help ensure healthy, good eating every day! Feed a Chimp »
