Twelve years ago Pepper, NEAVS' adopted chimpanzee, was rescued from the Laboratory for Experimental Medicine and Surgery in Primates (LEMSIP) by the Fauna Foundation sanctuary. Her records were incomplete and so, like many chimpanzees, Pepper was assigned her own special birthday. Every year on December 3rd, Fauna celebrates Pepper with a party and lots of extra TLC.
Pepper is playing a crucial role in the growing success of the Great Ape Protection Act (H.R. 1326) which has more than 100 cosponsors. Her story is being told to millions through news stories, presentations, articles, documentaries, and in NEAVS' outreach YouTube message.
Help us reach the goal of 112 cosponsors by December 3rd in honor of Pepper's 12 years in sanctuary. Please contact your representative TODAY. Ask him or her to sign on to the Great Ape Protection Act (H.R 1326).
