This center sounds like it really does a service for the animals. I hope it prospers.

More service and rescuse of this sort needs to be provided, it's a pity they have to be there at all, if only the primate testing and all the other cruelty would stop.

What a wonderful ending to a very sad beginning. It's so sad that their mothers were killed but hopefully they will live a good life now.
