We are gearing up for an amazing day of giving in Kentucky! This year the Primate Rescue Center is participating in Kentucky Gives Day on May 14th, 2019. This worldwide day of giving, hosted by the Kentucky Nonprofit Network, is specifically for nonprofit organizations in Kentucky to spread their message and raise funds for their cause.

The Primate Rescue Center is the permanent home for nine chimpanzees, as well as one siamang gibbon and forty monkeys. We will be raising funds all day on May 14th to support the daily care of these amazing primates. We want to spread the word so that all of our supporters have the chance to give and encourage friends and family to give and support the care of all the primates at the PRC.

This year on Kentucky Gives Day, we will be focusing on raising money for our Primate Health & Wellness Program. We are committed to giving all of our residents the best nutrition and the healthiest lifestyle possible and we spare no expense to provide organic produce, essential vitamins and supplements, nutrient-rich chow biscuits and other essential dietary requirements for the 50 primates in our care. Each primate eats 3 balanced meals per day and we have many residents who require special diets due to medical conditions such as diabetes, IBS and food allergies. We hope that by participating in Kentucky Gives Day we can raise the necessary funds to continue providing the best health and wellness possible for years to come. Your donation will go directly to the care of the apes and monkeys at the PRC – from exotic and healthy produce, to natural wellness supplements, your gift helps cover the cost of these necessities.

We will be using our social media pages to share about Kentucky Gives Day and we would love your support in spreading the word! You can visit our giving page here and share the link with your family and friends to help us raise funds for all of the primates at the PRC. You don’t have to wait until May 14th to give, so visit our giving page to give your gift today!
