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;

Encouraging compliance with applicable local, state and federal laws and animal welfare statutes.
