Senior-Living Company Cancels Planned Valentine’s Day Monkey Act

After hearing from PETA and our members and supporters, Juniper Village at Mount Joy has canceled a cruel act featuring a monkey named Django that had been scheduled for Valentine’s Day.

This victory for Django comes just one month after a Christmas event in Chestertown, Maryland, decided not to host this act. PETA is calling on everyone to help animals like Django by avoiding any events that use animals.
