Giving Back

Dana Savorelli has dedicated his life to the safe and humane handling of animals and it is the core operating principle of his company, Midwest Tongs. One of the biggest ways that Dana fulfills this calling is in the founding and operation of Monkey Island Rescue and Sanctuary, a non-profit animal sanctuary and retirement home for over 250 animals. Not exclusive to primates, Monkey Island Rescue and Sanctuary offers food, shelter and acquires veterinary care for unwanted and abandoned exotic animals of all types. These animals require special accommodations and handling skills that most animal control agencies do not possess, and thus many of these animals are euthanized. By providing Monkey Island Rescue and Sanctuary, Dana has saved the lives of countless animals. He is a sought-after expert in the rescue, rehabilitation and housing of distressed exotic animals.
