Primate Rescue Center Overview
The mission of the Primate Rescue Center is to alleviate the suffering of primates wherever it occurs by:
Providing sanctuary or referral to appropriate facilities;
Working to end the trade in pet primates in the U.S. and abroad;
Educating the public about the plight of primates caught in the breeder/dealer cycle;
Assisting researchers and zoo personnel in finding appropriate placement for their surplus primates;
Encouraging compliance with applicable local, state and federal laws and animal welfare statutes.
We've been around for over 25 years, and are planning for the next 50. Our youngest chimpanzee will easily live that long!
