The Lucky 9 - Baboon Rescue

We're thrilled to announce the arrival of nine new baboons to the Born Free USA Primate Sanctuary in Dilley, Texas! These female baboons, ages 13 to 23, were just retired from a research program at a laboratory in New York. Pearl, Missy, Chloe, April, Friendly, Spicey, Brooke, Kennedy, and Lulu join 13 other baboons, 4 vervets, and more than 600 macaques at the Sanctuary. Before receiving Born Free USA's loving care, they lived in separate cages, never experiencing the outdoors and only rarely the company of other baboons. Upon arrival at the Sanctuary, they we're released into a temporary safety shelter to all be together. They even reached through the fence to feel grass for the first time: a touching moment for all. Please help us make sure that Pearl, Missy, Chloe, April, Friendly, Spicey, Brooke, Kennedy, and Lulu transition smoothly to Sanctuary life, and that they receive the necessary ongoing care to keep them happy and healthy... for the remainder of their natural lives.Just click the "donate" button on this page.
