Vegetarian Times - December 2012

From VT's Annual Charity Guide

by Aurelia d'Andrea


What: Whether working to protect endangered species from canned hunts (in which animals are kept in confined areas) or facilitate low-cost spay/neuter procedures for cats and dogs, Friends of Animals has been at the forefront of animal advocacy since 1957.

Jordan at Primarily Primates

Today, one of its most important projects is the Primarily Primates sanctuary near San Antonio, where 400 chimpanzees, monkeys, lemurs, and other animals have found permanent safety after hard lives as research subjects, zoo exhibits, circus performers, and even family pets.

Gift idea: $50 provides two days' worth of bananas to nearly 400 primates.

Get involved: Distribute the organization's anti-fast-food posters at libraries and schools, or donate unsalted nuts and seeds for primates to eat.

Cool fact: In 2011, Primarily Primates received certification from the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries, an internationally recognized organization providing standards for sanctuaries and rescue centers.
