Dear Dr. Collins:
 
PLEASE see that the Alamogordo chimps, including those sent to the lab in Texas, be permanently retired and placed in the care of a sanctuary as soon as possible.  The American Anti-vivisection Society has pledged to pay for their care for the rest of their lives.  All NIH owned and supported chimpanzees, many of whom are elderly and sick, deserve loving care in a sanctuary; perhaps none more so than the Alamogordo chimps, many of whom were used in highly invasive experiments.  Time is short for many of these chimps.
 
Would you please make retiring these chimps to accredited sanctuaries a priority?
 
Thank you.

Yours truly,
Darlene Kaiser
