Jeannie’s Story
Jeannie was born on October 7, 1973, most likely in a lab. When she was only six years old, her owners, pharmaceutical company Merck, Sharp & Dohme, donated her to the Buckshire Corporation, a private lab.

In 1988, Jeannie entered New York University’s Laboratory for Experimental Medicine and Surgery in Primates (LEMSIP). In 1993, when she was 20 years old, Jeannie was infected with HIV. For the next two years, she endured intensive studies and suffered indignities. Records show that Jeannie was repeatedly given vaginal washes and cervical biopsies. She often needed to be treated for self-inflicted wounds and suffered from anorexia - refusing to eat.

In 1995, as her stress and inability to cope mounted, she had a “nervous breakdown,” and spent the next two years heavily medicated for anxiety. However, the medication did not help or prevent her from having episodes during which she screamed, ripped off her fingernails, and thrashed out at anyone who came near. Nor did her emotionally debilitated condition get her released from the lab sooner.

When LEMSIP closed, Jeannie was rescued into sanctuary at Fauna Foundation where her caregivers ensure that she gets love, respect, and everything she needs to continue on her road to recovery.

Rest in peace Jeannie

 "I am not interested to know whether vivisection produces results that are profitable to the human race or doesn't…The pain which it inflicts upon unconsenting animals is the basis of my enmity toward it, and it is to me sufficient justification of the enmity without looking further."

I am writing to ask you do you let monkeys in heaven?
I hear that there are trees in heaven. If I am allowed in heaven, can I climb trees? I have never been allowed to climb a tree. I have been serving mankind.
If I am allowed in heaven, will my mother be in heaven too?
The reason I ask, dear God, I was forcefully taken from my mother as an infant, to serve mankind. Just once I would like to cling to her, tell her I missed her.
I have been a helping hands monkey all my life. If I am allowed in heaven God, will I be able to take the pack off my back, will I be allowed to take the shock mechanism off my tail, I am told it is for positive reinforcement, to better serve mankind.
Will I get my teeth back? They were extracted to better serve mankind.
Will I be free to be what I was born to be ~a wild animal?
Will I still be called a hellion, destructive, aggressive and not what was expected of me when I was serving mankind?
I have been a research monkey all my life, and suffered great loneliness, pain and then death in a cold, stainless steel cage.
I was serving mankind.
I have been a pet monkey all my life. I have been neglected, abused, tortured, fed the wrong diet, kept in a small cage and have been denied the company of my own species all my life.
I was serving mankind.
