We are permanently suspending all new placements, but are committed to the care of all our service monkeys. Learn More.

Support Us

We support all our service monkeys for their entire lives.

Ways to Give

My wife Judy is immobile in her chair—when she goes for the phone and it slips out of her hand and drops to the floor—it's 18 inches away, but it might as well be 18 miles away.  Now Sophie is by her side to help her bridge that gap.

Why Give?

Your donation, no matter the size, links you to a caring group of individuals who know the power the human-animal bond has to change lives. In order to provide our service animals free of charge, we count on individual, corporate, and foundation donations and grants. While we can give you plenty of great reasons to support our organization, we think our recipients, supporters, and even some of our trainers and monkeys do it better. So take a minute to view our videos and know these are just tiny pieces of the moving story your donation helps to create.  

Ways to Give

We want you to be able to select both the amount and method that best fits your needs. We have tried to include a variety of ways you can help. If you have any questions please feel free to email our Development Office or call us at (617) 787-4419 ext. 105.
