An excellent end to a sad situation.
I had to find out so I inquired and yes...these animals have all been spayed or neutered through Save the Chimps. I am hoping it is the same for all the sanctuaries. This means a dwindling number of animals as time goes by but I will bet that, unfortunately, there will always be chimps in need of rescue.
In time, perhaps these facilities will be adapted to help other animals in need of compassion. I hope so.
