Chimpanzees in Need

7GA has hosted a Special Purpose Fund to support the animals at Southern California’s Wildlife Waystation. After 40 years of caring for abandoned and surrendered exotic and domestic animals, the Wildlife Waystation closed its doors in early 2019.

  • The fund helped to offset the costs for vital veterinary care, feeding and housing for the wild animals that are still at the Wildlife Waystation.
  • In 2022, we completed our 3 year, $4M emergency fundraiser to rescue 40 chimpanzees from a closed animal refuge. The work doesn’t end there…
  • Chimpanzees In Need has shifted to focus on chimpanzee capacity planning, to ensure that chimpanzees in captivity in the US can be successfully rehomed at accredited, reputable sanctuaries.
