At 98.4% shared DNA, chimpanzees are our closest relatives. Similarly, we are their closest relatives. They are more related to us than they are to gorillas and other apes. As a result, we can receive blood transfusions from them and react to life events in the same emotional and psychological ways. Like us, chimpanzees suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder when put into captivity. In Africa, Chimpanzees are considered a prestigious food item, and so are being butchered to extinction. Oftentimes, their baby infants are sold as pets or into the entertainment industry. When they reach adolescence, they are sent to medical laboratories in the USA. In the USA today, chimpanzees are still undergoing invasive and damaging medical experiments. For example, many chimpanzees undergo liver biopsies, often without any post-surgical medication. And to this day, chimpanzees are infected with HIV and develop AIDS. The use of chimpanzees in AIDS research has not helped research in this field at all.

When chimpanzees in laboratories suffer from PTSD nervous break-downs, they are euthanized.

The Fauna Foundation is an organization that rescues captive chimpanzees. They are offered a safe and peaceful sanctuary until they pass away from the effects of their bio medical laboratory treatment. Please visit http://www.adopt-a-chimp.com/ and adopt a chimpanzee for $25/month or make a one time donation of your choice.
