Sanctuary Support

What is NEAVS Sanctuary Support?

We support animals rescued from laboratories. These rescues are rare opportunities to change the lives of former research victims in an immediate and gratifying way, as we work toward the day when all animals will be free from vivisection.

We award a range of grants (including some for lifetime care) yearly to sanctuaries with dogs, bears, monkeys, orangutans, chimpanzees, and other animals. Previous recipients of this grant include: Animals Asia; Center for Great Apes; Chimp Haven; Chimpanzee Sanctuary Northwest; Fauna Foundation; International Primate Protection League; Jungle Friends; Mindy's Memory; Primate Rescue Center; Save the Chimps; and Poject Chimps.

Who have we helped?

We currently sponsor Emma, a chimpanzee at Project Chimps. We believe in Project Chimp's mission to provide lifelong exemplary care for chimpanzees retired from research. Previously, we made lifetime care commitments to two chimpanzees, Pepper at Fauna Foundation and Dana at Save the Chimps, both of whom sadly passed away in 2012. We also support lifetime care for Dante, a horse at Lockwood Animal Rescue Center rescued from a PMU (pregnant mare urine) farm where mares are kept continuously pregnant for their urine used in hormone replacement therapy drugs. In addition to helping raise funds for other sanctuary lifetime care endowments for animals from labs, such as a group of capuchin monkeys at Jungle Friends and orangutans Popi, Allie, and Mari at the Center for Great Apes, we provided major funding to Animals Asia for the building of dens and care of moon bears rescued from bear bile farms throughout Asia – including a lifetime care commitment to the moon bear, Shima.

Thanks to our generous supporters we are able to work together with national and international organizations to save and protect animals.
