Help us to help others
With an attentive and affectionate monkey helper, our recipients are defined more by what they have gained than by what they have lost. It is impossible to calculate the value of this transformation. No price can be put on the independence, self-respect, and renewed sense of purpose that these small creatures bring to their human partners.
But we do know that the average cost to train and place these special service animals is $40,000. That’s because our entire staff, and our state-of-the-art facilities, stand behind each monkey helper and make each partnership possible. And because we engage in a deep and active partnership with each recipient for the duration of their monkey’s service, along with overseeing our monkeys’ lifelong needs. With no government or insurance funding, gifts from generous donors are of critical importance to ensure our monkey helpers are placed at no cost to our recipients or their families. Your gift is an investment in a powerful relationship, and in the idea that a human-animal partnership can change lives forever.
There are many ways to give and to be a part of these life-altering partnerships.
