How long is the waiting list to receive a monkey helper?

The pool of potential monkey helper recipients fluctuates throughout any given time period. As mentioned above, we place an average of 6-8 monkeys/year. However, our waiting list is not, “first come, first served.” Because our monkey matching process is so unique we are really looking for the “right fit” when it comes to matching our monkeys with recipients. An individual may hear immediately after we review their application that they are accepted, while others can wait up to a year for an appropriate monkey to finish training. That being said, we don’t want our applicants to feel discouraged—we want you to assume you may be a perfect fit for a monkey we have in training right now.
