We are currently fighting hard for the survival of this newly born vervet monkey (Chlorocebus pygerythrus).
We collected him from SPCA Carletonville after he was found next to his dead mom. With the umbilical cord still attached, he was newly born and highly compromised, still covered in blood. His prognosis is guarded and we are doing everything we can to ensure his survival.
Our thanks to the Carletonville SPCA and inspector Bokkie for their assistance and for collaborating with us as well as primary carer for this vervet, permitted volunteer, Lauren Beckley.
We treat indigenous animals free of charge, relying solely on the donations and support of our community.
