Project Chimps, in partnership with the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, announced an agreement to relocate 220 retired research chimpanzees to its new sanctuary in northern Georgia.

Donations can be dropped off during business hours at the facility located at 106 Commercial St. in downtown Franklin.
