We are permanently suspending all new placements, but are committed to the care of all our service monkeys. Learn More.

Small Animal, Big Assistance

We support all our service monkeys for their entire lives.

Who we are

We are a non-profit organization that, for more than 40 years, has helped adults with mobility issues by providing them with a capuchin service monkey to help with their daily tasks. We raised and trained them, carefully matched them with recipients, and provided support for the lifetime of each placement. In 2021 we made the difficult decision to cease our training/placement services. We will use our vast knowledge to transition to an organization providing global insight into the human-animal bond.

Our commitment to every animal in our program is of critical importance and we will continue to support our current recipients, special care homes, and older monkeys.


Why a Monkey

The most obvious difference between capuchin monkeys and other service animals is their dexterous hands and amazing fine motor skills. Learn why monkeys or watch our
