Terry and Jeannie are two chimpanzees that have recently met for the first time. But right away they felt a strong bond between them and they became best friends.
Jeannie was rescued from a medical laboratory and Terry was rescued from a small zoo where he spent most of his life, about 18 years all alone!
Save the Chimps uploaded this video where the two chimpanzees held on each other and both refuse to let go.
“Terry recently met Jeannie and they didn’t want to let go of each other’s hand,” explained Save The Chimps.
The two chimps are now under the supervision and care of Save the Chimps which is a non-profitable organization that provides sanctuary for rescued chimps from research laboratories, pet trade or the industry of entertainment.
Save the Chimps exerts great efforts and does amazing rescue work, rescuing many, many chimpanzees who lived cruel circumstances. Both Jeannie and Terry are recently brought to the organization and they are looking after a much better life away from laboratory experiments or captivity. They deserve that kind of life!
