Jun 3, 2016 — Our campaign to hold the New York Blood Center accountable keeps going! More than a dozen celebrities including Rachel McAdams, Jessica Chastain, Joaquin Phoenix and Kate and Rooney Mara are speaking out for the chimpanzees! As the New York Post has reported, the celebrities signed a petition asking the New York Blood Center to reinstate financial support for the chimpanzees they abandoned in Liberia more than a year ago.

The petition reads, in part “…until NYBC keeps its promise and reinstates funding for the care of these chimpanzees, its name is synonymous with shameful animal neglect. We implore NYBC not to ignore the plight of these chimpanzees any longer and work with The Humane Society of the United States to provide financial support for the chimpanzees without further delay.”
