Saying Goodbye to Tom

December 15, 2009 • Posted in Project R&R News

It is with great sadness that we share that on December 10th, 2009, Tom, Project R&R’s Ambassador, died suddenly and unexpectedly at Fauna Sanctuary. Our condolences and love go out on behalf of all our supporters to Fauna director Gloria Grow, the chimps, and everyone at Fauna.

Tom inspired us, taught us, and earned the distinguished role of Project R&R’s Ambassador on behalf of all chimpanzees still languishing in laboratories everywhere.

PLEASE, in loving memory of Tom, call your Representative today and ask him/her to sign on to the Great Ape Protection Act (H.R. 1326) because it is the right thing to do.

If your Representative is already signed on, thank them and share with them our loss of Tom. Remind him/her that Tom’s sudden and unexpected death sends a tragic message that chimpanzees in labs have precious little time left. We must get them all to sanctuary by passing GAPA into law.
From of all of us at NEAVS, thank you for your love and care.


Theodora Capaldo, Ed.D.
