PEACEFUL VALLEY DONKEY RESCUE INC
November 17, 2012

Who would think donkeys? But when it comes to abandoned and abused animals, no creature should have to live in deplorable conditions. Mar and Amy Myers have taken it upon themselves, traveling throughout the country to rescue these beautiful animals and give them a chance to heal physically as well as emotionally and live out their lives with dignity and without the fear of torture. While on a mission visiting one of their sanctuaries in Florida, Mark and Amy made a special visit to us to show their personal appreciation as donors. It is something we didn't expect, nor was it necessary, but it demonstrates their heartfelt thanks for all the support that they receive. You can be sure that your donations are going to a great cause and Peaceful Valley Donkey Rescue is run by truly dedicated people.

CENTER FOR GREAT APES
November 17, 2012

The Center for Great Apes is celebrating their 20th anniversary. For the past 20 years Patti Ragan, founder and president, has dedicated her life to creating the most amazing sanctuary that cares for about 44 chimpanzees and orangutans. Most of these beautiful apes have been raised in horrific conditions. Whether they were in show business and then sold off to roadside zoos when their services were no longer needed, or were in experimental labs for decades or kept and caged as pets trying to be domesticated until they grew into the animals they are, The Center for Great Apes has become their home in which they live out the rest of their lives in a beautiful environment. The Center has taken in and rehabilitated apes that have cerebral palsy, or apes with no arms or legs or apes who have never seen the light of day for years or decades. The Center's amazing habitat includes over a mile long chutes connecting the apes to their various habitats and enclosures creates an environment in which they can live out their natural lives as apes - the way they should. A definite 5 star +++ rating. Thank you Patti.

JUNGLE FRIENDS PRIMATE SANCTUARY INC
November 8, 2012

What an amazing experience being at Jungle Friends and seeing all these monkeys in such a tremendous environment. It's hard to imagine being ripped from yur mother at a few days old and either being held captive in cages as pets or in a science lab, never knowing what a monkey should experience or never knowing another monkey of their species. It is so wonderful to see how playful and rehabilitated these monkeys are and to see the extra joy they get when they see Kari walking around. She is truly amazing in dedicating her life to these beautiful animals. She has created a fantastic environment for them to run, play and just be monkeys. Kudos to Kari and her "monks"!
