There is a Big Cat rescue practically in my back yard (Serenity SPrings) and they do great work (photos on my profile page). They don't however, have monkeys. these animals are going to The Wild Animal Sanctuary near Denver, and at least a couple of those commenting on the site have been there and speak well of it.

What possesses people to amputate lions' toes, break (or pull) their teeth, and make them perform tricks? I hope that soon ALL abused circus animals will be retired to sanctuaries.
