Happy New Year!
Thank you for finding us and for reading this post! We could use your help!
We are wondering if you might have any extra materials or supplies that will help us fulfill our non-profit mission of constructing a much-needed indoor/outdoor monkey sanctuary near Westfield, WI that will provide permanent homes to monkeys retiring from research facilities, the pet monkey trade, and the entertainment industry.
I worked in a lab 15 years ago with 97 rhesus monkeys, which inspired me to form Primates Incorporated. I thought the very least we could do is send them to an enriching and spacious sanctuary after their time in research, don’t you agree?
For additional donation opportunities, please view our wish list here: http://www.primatesinc.com/support/wishlist/
We also have sponsorship opportunities here: http://www.primatesinc.com/store/
We are set to complete construction and retire the first three male rhesus monkeys by February 2018 from an out-of-state laboratory. Please see the monkeys’ pictures below.
Your tax-deductible donation is greatly appreciated!
Thank you in advance for your consideration and support.

This is the first indoor/outdoor structure that can house 4-20 monkeys, and it is estimated to cost $275,000 after it’s completed. We will use the chain link fencing to create the enclosures and walkways.
