TY for posting Giana. This is a very important initiative that has been going on for some years now. I am currently reading the book "The Chimps of Fauna Sancturary" a Canadian story of resilience and recovery by Andrew Westoll. The sanctuary is located near Chambly, Quebec. It is an amazing story of how some of the chimps were smuggled out in the dead of night during a raging snowstorm from research labs in the US. It is written with compassion, warmth and humour.

Get all vivisction victims into sanctuaries! Arrest the vivisectors for their crimes. Make the vivisection labs pay for the animals care as long as the animals are alve.
