Save the Chimps rescues Terry from the Closing Las Vegas Zoo

Save the Chimps is the world’s largest sanctuary for rescued chimpanzees. Its mission is to provide and build support for permanent sanctuary for the lifelong care of chimpanzees rescued from research laboratories, entertainment, and the pet trade.

So when the Las Vegas Zoo abruptly shut their doors in early October, Save the Chimps immediately mobilized a team, led by Sanctuary Director Jen Feuerstein, and headed to the rescue. And now, Terry, a 33-year-old male chimpanzee who had been living alone at the zoo since 1995, is headed to his new forever-home at Save the Chimps in Fort Pierce, Florida!

Terry will now live at the Save the Chimps’ three-acre island sanctuary home, complete with hills, shelter, and climbing structures for the chimps. The sanctuary has a hurricane-proof indoor housing area, where Terry and the other chimps are served healthy meals three times a day.

Here at The Engage Group, we’re beyond happy to support Save the Chimps’ vital work for these deserving animals. Please join us in supporting this great organization by liking them on Facebook and/or making a donation to Save the Chimps so they can continue to rescue and care for chimps, just like Terry.
