and clearAdopting a monkey involves a tremendous amount of effort and it is not something that should be taken lightly. The first step is to research if it is legal or illegal to own a pet monkey in your state.
Some states require permits and/or licenses in order to keep a pet monkey. Next, potential adopters should contact a reputable rescue organization or an experienced veterinarian that specializes in exotic animals to find out more about how to safely and responsibly care for a monkey. Finally, since primates require more space and social companionship than most other types of pets, those interested in adopting should make sure they are able to provide for the monkey’s emotional and physical needs.
