For example, Primarily Primates, Inc.
, which housed several retired research chimps, is apparently a pit of despair.
Also, facilities that receive federal funding such as Chimp Haven
must return animals to laboratories if they are requested to. In my book, that's not really retirement.
Project R&R has a list of sanctuaries that can take animals
, and notes which have received funding, and I assume approval, from them.
Personally, after watching Chimpanzees: An Unnatural History
on PBS and getting to "know" Gloria Grow
, I think the Fauna Sanctuary
is truly a place that's earned it's name.
