ed. In order to get a pet monkey, you must first do your research.
You must make sure that it is legal in your area to have a pet monkey, as many jurisdictions have placed restrictions on monkeys as pets. You should also check with your local zoo or other animal-care facilities to determine if you can adopt a monkey, as most facilities do not allow for the sale of primates. Additionally, you may need to contact a primate rescue or sanctuary to see if they have any adoptable monkeys.
Once you have verified that it is legal to own a monkey in your area, you can begin the process of finding a monkey for adoption.
