Getting a Checkup

Helping Hands is committed to providing the very best care for all our service monkeys—whether they are in our facilities or living elsewhere under our care. Our Medical Advisory Committee, which includes primate experts from throughout New England, sets our standards for monkey care and helps our veterinary staff continuously evaluate and improve monkey care techniques. Loading a CDThese same high standards guide the highly qualified veterinarians we work with around the nation, as they monitor the health, diet, and medical needs of our monkey helpers in placement. Recipients are expected to carefully follow our monkey care policies and protocols, which are designed to keep our monkeys healthy and happy. Because the health of our monkey helpers is so important, we provide financial support for ongoing veterinary care when needed.
