BENEFITING: SAVE THE CHIMPS
At Save the Chimps, the annual cost to care for one chimpanzee is $16,000. Sometimes chimpanzee residents require extra care. Indie suffered through experimentation even as a young chimp. Indie has been diagnosed with pulmonary emboli, or blood clots in her lungs. Although many people can be treated with the more common drug, coumadin, it is too dangerous for Indie because we can't check her bleeding times. That is why we need to use a newer anti-clot medicine. Once she has been treated, she will have to go on a lower dose possibly for life. The first three weeks of treatment will cost $425.00 then a maintenance dose @ 3 dollars/day. Learn more about Indie's extraordinary life.
