FORT PIERCE, Fla. -- Legendary television host and animal advocate Bob Barker has donated $250,000 to Save the Chimps sanctuary.
"Chimpanzees that have been tortured both physically and mentally for years in hideous research experiments at long last find the first peace, contentment and love they have ever known at Save the Chimps," said Barker. "I invite you to join me in helping Save the Chimps to continue their splendid work."
This is the second generous gift Barker has given Save the Chimps. In 1998, just months after Save the Chimps was founded, Barker donated $10,000 to the organization.
