Apply for a Monkey

Our service monkeys are provided at no cost to our recipients.

How much does a monkey cost?

We place our monkeys with recipients free of charge. All of the costs associated with training and placing the monkeys (about $40,000 per animal) are funded by individual donors and foundation grants. There are however some long term financial commitments such as food, vitamins, shampoo, and a once a year veterinary wellness visit that we hope our recipients can contribute to but it’s not a limiting factor for acceptance if you need some help with these costs. Helping Hands will cover all placement costs and any major medical care if the need arises.
