nl-23nov2001-monkeys1.jpg (12144 bytes)nl-23nov2001-monkeys2.jpg (9616 bytes)A research facility has contacted Mindy's Memory Primate Sanctuary in Oklahoma regarding the release of two 13-year-old male rhesus monkeys.  The director of the sanctuary, Linda Barcklay, would like to take these monkeys in and it needs to be done immediately.  We are working with the research facility to keep these monkeys from being sent back into research.

Currently there are 36 residents at Mindy’s Sanctuary, 7 of them being former research animals.  The sanctuary does not have any more space without building another cage.  Other sanctuaries were approached by the research facility and turned them down.

If you can send a donation for this project we will appreciate it very much.   Normally Mindy's would not try to raise funds in this manner, however this is an URGENT situation.  Construction costs will be approximately $8,000.00.  If we cannot raise the amount needed, the funds WILL BE RETURNED to you.  If you would like the funds to be used to benefit the residents already at the sanctuary in the event the enclosure CANNOT be built please indicate this when you make your donation.
