Chimpanzees in Canada, you say?
Giving back to our community is a forty-year tradition at i24 Call Management Solutions,
The organizations we support are those that help our most vulnerable.
At the Fauna Foundation, it’s chimpanzees rescued from Biomedical research.
(from the Fauna website)
The primary objective of Fauna Foundation is to provide a protected environment for neglected, abused farm and domestic animals and former biomedical research chimpanzees.
We aim, through education, to foster a better understanding of all animals while exploring our ethical responsibility as humans for the well being of all earth’s creatures.
The chimpanzees were retired from biomedical research and were used in the testing of human vaccines. For this reason, they have special needs and require specialized, more expensive care to ensure the health and safety of the chimpanzees and the humans who work with them.

In addition Fauna’s mission, we have a deeply felt concern for environmental issues, arising as much from shared and deeply-held beliefs as from the necessity to offer our Sanctuary residents a protected habitat in which they can thrive.
This awareness has led to Fauna’s sanctuary land being designated as a Natural Reserve by the Québec government, under the name Réserve Naturelle du Ruisseau-Robert. Our land management program strives, among other things, to increase local bird populations.
Gary recently received the following card (with calendar) from the Fauna Foundation.

“Every once in a very long while you meet someone who changes your life for the better – forever.
I had the good fortune to meet Gloria Grow, founder of the Fauna Foundation, almost forty years ago now.
Gloria inspires me every day to live a kinder and more generous life towards all living things and I will be eternally grateful to the universe for bringing her into my world. “ – Gary Blair
We don’t seek validation for giving back to our community. It’s our duty.
It’s rewarding and motivating to know your contribution makes a difference. Hearing that from people you admire for their selflessness is inspirational.
