About The Primate Rescue Center
Located in Central Kentucky, The Primate Rescue Center is a nonprofit sanctuary providing lifetime care to nearly 50 primates, including a group of 9 chimpanzees and a variety of monkey species.
Rescue Circumstances & How They Are Notified
Primates face many challenges from being used in entertainment, threats in the wild, private ownership, and research. The Primate Rescue Center responds to primate needs across the country. Sometimes they are notified by the authorities and other times they are contacted directly by people who can no longer take care of a primate. You can read more about some of the key issues here.
