ed**Adopting a baby monkey is not an easy task, and can be a lengthy process. ** Most states and countries have laws and regulations that prioritize the welfare of the animals and require that applicants meet specific criteria before adopting.
To be granted permission to adopt a baby monkey, for example, many organizations require applicants to first complete an educational or informational course about primates and their care. Once approved, individuals may have to provide a quarantine area or cage, food, toy, and certified veterinarian for the baby monkey. Additionally, many states may require individuals to pass a home inspection or have the species of primate they are wanting to adopt be approved by the state before they are allowed to adopt.
There is also usually a fee associated with adopting a baby monkey.
