We support all our service monkeys for their entire lives.

Do monkeys go out in public?

No, monkeys do not assist with tasks in public. Monkeys are trained to perform tasks within the home environment only. We believe it’s important to respect our monkey’s hierarchy and acknowledge that service in public would be stressful on both monkeys and their recipients alike.

In a placement home, once a bond has been formed and a recipient is given approval from their staff advisors, monkeys enjoy outdoor time with their recipients when weather allows. Many of our monkey-recipient pairs relish their playtime together in the backyard or on the deck or patio. During these times, monkeys are leashed to keep them safe.
