Birth Month: January

Chimp Haven’s only former pet, Henry was found inside a garage where he had lived in deplorable conditions for 15 years, severely underweight and almost completely bald due to malnutrition. Today, he’s healthy and has overcome many of the struggles that came with transitioning from life as a pet to greater freedoms that Chimp Haven can provide. Not only has Henry adjusted well to living among other chimps, he’s flourished in his group with Donovan and other friends. He loves interacting with care staff, attempting (unsuccessfully) to gain Barbara’s affections, and rough-and-tumble play sessions with his boy pals.
