Help the 14 Chimpanzees in San Antonio!

With your help, we continue to fight to end chimpanzee experiments. The National Institutes of Health halted the transfer of 186 chimpanzees from Alamogordo, N.M., to a Texas facility where they would be placed back into invasive experiments. They were given a reprieve while the National Academy of Sciences investigates the use of chimpanzees in invasive research. However, 14 of their companions, who were already moved to San Antonio, Texas, still need your help because they may be used in painful experiments any day.

Please ask Francis Collins, M.D., Ph.D., director of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), to have a heart this Valentine’s Day and send the 14 chimpanzees back to Alamogordo where they will be safe from experimentation.

These chimpanzees have already been used in painful experiments for decades. Levi was taken away from his mother Jody on the day he was born, Nov. 23, 1983. While Jody has lived Chimpanzee Sanctuary Northwest since 2008, Levi awaits experiments in San Antonio with the other 13 chimpanzees.

Tell NIH that it is unethical to use these 14 chimpanzees in cruel experiments. Please e-mail or call Dr. Collins and ask that he send Levi, Rosie, Randy, and their companions home for Valentine’s Day.

Thank you for your help.

Best regards,
