Chance was found in the box she had spent her whole life in after being taken from her family, her head swollen with fluid most likely from blunt force trauma, her legs were atrophied & she was rocking back & forward, she was very nervous & in a video by the Dodo you can clearly see her jolt with fear. Her future was uncertain, would the fluid cause her problems going forward, would she even be able to live a free life in the sanctuary forest ?
They all need alot of sleep when they arrive & start to feel safe
But then she started to smile
She made friends
Boxes are now her toys ~ not her prison
The swelling on her head subsided, she learned how to ‘chimp’ from her new orphaned family and grew into the happy girl she is today ~ unrecognisable from the swollen little head & tiny body much smaller than was normal for her age
Now YOU can experience the joy of Chancey ~ adopt her today & feel the love in your heart from doing an amazing deed.

There are nearly EIGHTY orphans at LCRP, each one has witnessed the murder of their parents & extended family for both bushmeat & in order to steal the babies, as many as eight chimps may be murdered to steal one baby. They come in in all kinds of conditions, usually very ill, puffy eyes through dehydration & poor diet, always traumatised & often dead behind the eyes. The work LCRP do is INCREDIBLE, Jimmy Desmond is a vet who gets to work immediately to fix the physical, Jenny Desmond gets to work on fixing the mental & emmotional ~ because they experience the same feelings as us, they have nightmares too!! Then the team at LCRP come together to nuture & provide. Before the Desmonds arrived in Liberia there were NO conviscations of chimps even though it is illegal to be in possesion of one, there was nowhere to place them so they didn’t bother to apply the law, NOW ~ the Desmonds have created that place as work continues on the new purpose built sanctuary, they have built relationships with locals, law enforcement & government, this has resulted in all these orphans arriving on the door step and most importantly CONVICTIONS have started to happen, not everytime but it’s becoming more regular, sending out the message that this vile trade in bushmeat & orphans will no longer be tollerated, but this comes at a cost, so PLEASE adopt a chimp in March for yourself, for a gift, for Mothers Day ~ help to feed all these little tummies & to continue work on the new sanctuary.
