Adoption Program


Primate Sanctuary Adoption Kit

The Born Free USA Primate Sanctuary offers macaques, vervets and baboons rescued from abuse and exploitation a second chance at a more natural life. After being denied the freedom they deserved, these individuals have been given a new start at the Sanctuary, where they can live out their remaining days.

You can give the sanctuary residents the gift of a bright tomorrow by "adopting" one of them today! Adoptive sponsors make annual donations to help us provide food, care, and rehabilitation to their adopted individual. For $25, $52, or $100 a year, you can make a difference in a primate's life. Sponsors receive various materials about their adopted individual, as well as the sanctuary's semi-annual newsletter, The Primate Post, which includes updates on adopted animals and on life at the sanctuary.
