Letter from Polly Schultz on Our Ministry, and Primate Research and Rescue - 25 Feb 2006
I work with these souls everyday of my life. ANYONE who works with them HAS to understand that they have the same emotions, the same fears, the same desire to be free that we do. They are unique individuals just like we are! I don't understand what kind of a person could actually do this. I just don't get it. I talked with a lady a couple years back who used to work at a research center, who quit because of the nightmares she continues to have to this day. She said an experiment where infants were isolated in the dark, with no interaction, screamed out in fear to her every night in her dreams. I'm a very sensitive person, and I can feel these creatures pain, I can see it in their eyes and hear it in their cries. This has to stop. I think that education is the key, and to NEVER stop fighting for the rights these creatures deserve.
Please don't ever stop what you're doing. When we get to a point where we can afford financial support to your cause, we will certainly do just that! Until then I will refer as many people to your website as cross paths with us.
You are Truly Angels!

Thank you very much for your kind and encouraging words.
We believe the word you are seeking to describe those people is "evil". They have no sense of what it means to be compassionate, they feel nothing for another living being. They don't care if they're in pain and suffering.
You are doing a wonder job, too, and have a very nice web site. We receive a lot of interest in the animal stories we have posted on our web site, we didn't notice any on your web site. If you do have any stories (with photos), we would love to publish them with active links to your web site.
We have found that the most effective way to reach people is by grabbing them emotionally, either through "shock therapy" as our photos do, or through having people become involved with the emotions and feelings of the animals, which the stories do. Education seems to play a very minor part in making people more compassionate.
We will also place a link to your web site on our Rescue and Sanctuary link page.
In the Love of the Lord,
Frank and Mary
