"They come here after they're too hard to handle or too dangerous to keep,  and then we

  maintain their lives for the time that they have left to live, however long that is."

 

DANA SAVORELLI - Founder & Director, Monkey Island Rescue And Sanctuary

 MONKEY ISLAND RESCUE AND SANCTUARY

FOUNDER AND DIRECTOR - DANA SAVORELLI

From a very early age Dana Savorelli has been working with and teaching others about animals, their handling, care and conservation. His passion for animals led him to create Midwest Tongs, the world's leading company for the creation of innovative tools specifically designed for the handling of animals in captivity and the wild. Midwest Tongs is the first choice among professionals around the globe for the safe and humane handling of reptiles, mammals, and other animals. Midwest Tongs are even found in industrial or commercial settings where safety in reaching and lifting are paramount. Dana is a recognized expert in the humane handling of animals in captivity and the wild.

 

Dana founded Monkey Island Rescue And Sanctuary as a place of rescue for unwanted and abandoned exotic animals. Without his intervention, many of these beautiful animals would have died from neglect or euthanasia. Each day, Monkey Island Rescue And Sanctuary cares for over 250 animals with food, shelter, medical care and enrichment. The animals vary from apes and monkeys to cobras and sloths. Each species has special diet and habitat requirements along with round the clock monitoring of their health and welfare.

 

Monkey Island Rescue And Sanctuary is a federally recognized 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, care and housing of unwanted and abandoned exotic animals. Additionally, MIRAS is licensed by the United States Department of Agriculture as a requirement for some of the species in their care. MIRAS was founded by Dana Savorelli, who operated as its director. MIRAS is located in Greenwood, Missouri. The facilities are not open to the public, however the organization operates a very active FACEBOOK page where people can see their work, learn more about the animals, ask questions and donate to support the organization.

 

Those local to the Greenwood area interested in volunteering at Monkey Island Rescue And Sanctuary may contact us directly for an application. To volunteer you must be over 18. Experience working with animals is helpful, but not required. Ideal for college students studying biology, zoology, veterinary medicine, or other life sciences fields.
