Wish List

Due to COVID-19 safety precautions, Chimp Haven is only able to accept new items at this time.

Help provide much-needed supplies for our growing population of retirees! Our Amazon wish list is always up-to-date with the chimps’ latest needs, and is the best and easiest way to send the chimps supplies and goodies:

Don’t forget: if you make all your purchases on smile.amazon.com and designate Chimp Haven as your charity of choice, Amazon will donate 0.5% of all your purchases to us!
