Main aim of the charity

The mission of the Primate Rescue Center is to alleviate the suffering of primates wherever it occurs by: -Providing sanctuary or referral to appropriate facilities -Working to end the trade in primates both in the United States and abroad -Educating the public to the plight of primates caught in the breeder/dealer cycle -Assisting researchers and zoo personnel in finding appropriate placement for surplus primates -Encouraging compliance with applicable local, state, and federal laws and animal welfare statutes

How the employee got involved and why

I follow many animal sanctuaries, namely those involving primates such as chimpanzees- I have been fascinated by these beautiful animals since I was a child. I first learned about the Primate Rescue Center about a year ago, and was surprised and happy to know that there was a sanctuary devoted to caring for them right here in Kentucky.

What work does the employee do for charity?

Previously, I have donated to the PRC; but last weekend I was given the opportunity to come and meet the staff and the animals, and to create puppet treat bags for enrichment. It was an amazing experience, and I look forward to volunteering and helping out more in the future!
