Apply for a Monkey

We support all our service monkeys for their entire lives.

How do you decide who makes a good candidate?

We base this decision on several different factors. Our monkeys, much like humans, have a variety of different personalities. Some of our monkeys are very outgoing, some are shy, some like to explore, some like to cuddle, some are reserved while others are confident. Some monkeys prefer men over woman or vice versa, some need a dominant personality in their life while others would prefer someone passive.

We base our “monkey matching” on personality profiles of our candidates and the monkeys that are currently in training. We often say that applying for a monkey is, “half adoption process, half dating-service.” Other factors that we consider are: other individuals in your life, home environment, a candidate’s task needs, and general personality traits required to develop a positive relationship of trust and understanding with a monkey.
