CENTER FOR GREAT APES
September 21, 2013

I've only been there once, but what an experience. They do a wonderful job taking care of their animals. Everything is well taken care of, from the enclosures to the animals. I donate to them when I can, as I know they do great work.

UNITED STATES ZOOLOGICAL ASSOCIATION
November 12, 2012

I love this organization. They help all animals, not just one species. They are doing a wonderful job in helping educate people on various animals. If you teach people about the planet and it's animals, then people will want to help save this earth. We all must work as a team to preserve our animals.

FRISKYS WILDLIFE & PRIMATE SANCTUARY INC
August 23, 2011

I visit Frisky's several times a year. This is my favorite wildlife sanctuary in my area. They do wonderful work and I would not hesitate to take a hurt animal there for rehabilitation. Colleen does wonderful work year round with never taking a day off. She rehabilitates and releases those animals that can be released. She has several primates which are my favorite to visit. As a primate owner, I enjoy visiting her to compare ideas on various topics concerning primates. Her sanctuary is always clean and well kept. All animals are well cared for and happy to be there. As a member of the Simian Society of America, I can state that she runs one of the best sanctuaries in the country.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I've seen several animals that have been rehabilitated and released. It nice to know that they are now alive and well because of Frisky's Sanctuary. If left in the wild, they would have died without her care.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make it possible for the public to know more about this sanctuary, so they would be willing to help make donations.

MY ROLE:
Donor & I donate money when I can and visit as often as I can. My chapter of the Simian Society of America has fund raisers for Frisky's.
