At the Born Free USA Primate Sanctuary, our mission is to provide nonhuman primates as high a quality of life as we can, with as little human interference as possible. Now that the Wild Animal Orphanage rescue is complete, the 186-acre Sanctuary, located near San Antonio, Texas, is home to more than 600 individuals, many of whom were rescued from abusive or exploitive situations.
In honor of the 107 macaques and one baboon — a total of 108 primates — who have joined us from the WAO, we are encouraging donations of $10.80! You can enter a higher donation amount if you choose. Thank you for your support! Once we receive 108 donations starting Sept. 27, 2012, we will randomly select one of the 108 donors to receive a WAO prize package that includes a free primate "adoption" kit, a Born Free USA T-shirt, a plush toy primate and other prizes.

Your generous donation to our Rescue and Rehabilitation Fund ensures that we are able to continue this vital work of rescuing and rehabilitating individual monkeys in need, as well as providing them with an enriched, natural environment alongside others of their kind.
In addition, your gift greatly assists in the lifetime care of these individuals — including our ability to supply them a varied and nutritious diet of fresh produce, nuts and seeds, and monkey chow.
Thank you for making a difference in the lives of these wonderful animals who deserve the second chance at a more normal life that our Primate Sanctuary offers them.
