Sanctuary Owner Plans on Killing the Animals

Two nationally recognized and accredited sanctuaries have offered to provide or locate new homes for the animals at the Genesis Wildlife Center.

In an interview last week, Ms. Miller said her center would have to close if the city cuts its $50,000 annual appropriation, the only dedicated funding the center receives. Furthermore, she claimed new laws in Pennsylvania prohibiting the ownership of primates and a lack of sanctuaries to place her animals would leave her no choice but to euthanize all of them. She reiterated that claim at Scranton City Council's meeting Tuesday night.

A representative of the Pennsylvania Game Commission said the state's new primate law, enacted last April, does not prohibit licensed menageries like Genesis from keeping primates, donating them to other sanctuaries, taking in confiscated monkeys or even selling accidental offspring, but it does prohibit them from importing more primates from outside the state."

Front page of their website it says:
"A place where all sick and abandoned animals can feel welcome"
