You Can Help


The Born Free USA Primate Sanctuary is a division of Born Free USA. Born Free USA and the Sanctuary are supported by tax-deductible contributions from individuals who want to help us further our mission.

Born Free USA does more than just rescue and provide a home for nonhuman primates. As an animal advocacy group, Born Free USA has a long history of success in captive and exotic wildlife issues. We work proactively to protect nonhuman primates, and other wild animals, from being kept as "pets" or used in research or in zoos in the first place. Through public education, legislative advocacy, media, grassroots organizing and litigation, our efforts have had an enormous impact on public awareness of the mistreatment of animals.

By contributing to Born Free USA, you can support the critical work of the Primate Sanctuary, help reduce animal suffering, increase legal protections for captive exotic animals, and restore wildlife's rightful place in the wild. To learn more about how you can help, choose an option below.

Feed Our Felines!

Over the years people have dumped at our doorstep feral felines they've captured — and also deposited their unwanted pet cats. We feed these non-primate animals and provide them with veterinary care when needed — not a small expense. Please consider making a generous donation to our cats' kitty, which we call Prairie's Fund.
