From Lisa Marie -
Primate freedom tags are available to those who are
concerned about the primates being used in research. They are a unique
record pressed into a stainless steel tag ("dog-tag") that can be worn
as a necklace or placed on a key chain. They are special because each
one holds the serial number of a monkey or nonhuman ape being held for
experimentation in one of our nation's Primate Research Laboratories.
The record includes the date of birth, gender, species, and location of
After receiving your tag, you can wear it to educate
others about primates in research and how they too can obtain a tag to
support them. There is also information that comes with your tag on how
to contact the specific primate center to ask them for more information
about your adopted primate.
By writing to them, this also reminds them that they are
responsible for their cruelty against animals.
Please visit <

how to donate $10.00 and receive a tag if you are interested in
supporting a primate at a research center.
You might not like to wear the tag because of what it is
representing, but you will feel good knowing that you are wearing it
because of your support for the animals. And when you educate others
while wearing your special tag, it will be close to your heart.
