Born 1975 in captivity. Celebrated birthday: August 23rd
Missy had four babies during her years as a biomedical research subject. She was also used for hepatitis vaccine research. Missy has such a playful spirit, it is easy to imagine her playing with her young children. Unfortunately, she never had the chance to do this as they were all taken from her when they were merely infants. At the sanctuary, she is making up for lost time and spends hours each day playing with enrichment objects, humans and other chimpanzees. Missy likes to play games of tug-of-war with her human caregivers and chase with her chimpanzee companions. She and Annie are best friends and are often seen playing and relaxing together at the sanctuary.
