Where the chimps came from
Save the Chimps provides a peaceful and dignified retirement to chimpanzees rescued from research laboratories, the entertainment industry, and the pet trade. Our original 21 residents were used by the U.S. Air Force for space exploration testing. The majority of our residents were rescued from biomedical research, while others were retired from the entertainment industry and the pet trade. Here you can search for the chimpanzees in our care by their background in each of these areas.
