A Delicious Part of a Peaceful Retirement

Primates Incorporated's mission is to improve the quality of life for monkeys by retiring them from research facilities, private ownerships, and the entertainment industry. Therefore, we have built an indoor/outdoor sanctuary near Westfield, Wisconsin with some lip smackin' good accommodations for even the most temperature-picky monkey seeking retirement. And fruit––we have lots of yummy fruit.

Just the Plain Ol’ Facts

According to the 2016 USDA animal care report, there are approximately 111,000 monkeys living in U.S. research laboratories. Some researchers have asserted that sanctuaries are unnecessary because the monkeys are re-used or euthanized.

However, many other researchers would like to retire their monkeys but are often unable to find space for them at the nine existing sanctuaries. Those monkeys who had a brief chance at retirement will likely not get another opportunity.

View Our Vision

Primates Incorporated believes as long as the FDA testing regulations and the primate research industry exist, the least we can do as a society is give back to the primates by retiring them out of laboratories into spacious and enriching sanctuaries.
