How You Can Help Monkeys in the Year of the Monkey
We’ve always had a thing for monkeys.
When PETA investigated a primate laboratory in Silver Spring, Maryland, in 1981, we secured the nation’s first arrest and criminal conviction of an animal experimenter for cruelty to animals, the first confiscation of abused animals from a laboratory, and the first U.S. Supreme Court victory for animals used in experiments.
The “Silver Spring monkeys” effectively launched PETA, and we’ve been helping monkeys and other animals in laboratories ever since. And now, as we ring in the Chinese New Year—the Year of the Monkey—we’re working harder than ever to free monkeys abused in laboratories, but we can’t do it alone. Check out how you can honor and help save monkeys during their namesake year:
