Thank you everyone who joined us on our Live Instagram video! Clay was enjoying fishing "termites" out of his artificial termite mound. (It's really a mixture of oatmeal and dried fruit) Hope you will join us again next time! #savethechimps #claythechimp #sanctuarylife

Meet Larry, a Save the Chimps resident. The first ten years of his life were spent at Monkey Jungle in Florida. He was then sold for biomedical research use where he spent ten years in a small cage before being rescued by @savethechimps in 2002.
Go to to learn about Larry and the other residents of the sanctuary.

Placed 2nd in my age division at this year's #Chimpathon 🐵 The race raises about $50k each year to support the 251 rescued chimps @savethechimps - the LARGEST chimp sanctuary in the world 🌎

The painting I'm holding was made by Cheetah, a 45 year old chimp who endured 31 years of painful laboratory testing 🐒 After a congratulatory photo, I broke down in tears after reading Cheetah's heartbreaking bio. Fortunately, life changing sanctuaries like Save the Chimps exist and provide chimps like Cheetah with a happy ending, surrounded by family, friends and acres of land to truly LIVE her life.

Please help end the cruel, unnecessary practices of animal testing 💉 Only purchase certified #crueltyfree vegan products and actively fight to end laboratory testing. If you're local to South Florida Please join @smashhls in fighting Worldwide Primates (located in Doral, Florida), the 3rd largest monkey smuggler and distributor in the US ✊🏼 No one should be stolen from their family and forced into a life of slavery and torture 💔 •
Thank you so much to everyone who donated to my fundraising page, helping to raise $435 for an amazing cause 🙏🏼 If anyone is still interested in donating, please check out the link in my bio 💚

While recovering from a procedure, Freddy enjoyed being spoiled by his caregivers and the veterinary staff. 💕#savethechimps #sanctuarylife #freddythechimp

It was a rainy day at the sanctuary today! Most of the chimps seek shelter inside the building attached to their islands, but some don't mind getting a little wet! Here's Timmy sitting nice and dry inside an overhead tunnel, watching the storms roll through. #savethechimps #sanctuarylife #timmythechimp
