Where To Buy A Monkey In The Us?

It is illegal to own a monkey as a pet in most states in the US, so it is not possible to buy one. However, some accredited zoos and sanctuaries such as the Zoological Wildlife Foundation in Miami, FL, the Zoo Miami in Miami-Dade County, FL, and the Lion Country Safari in Loxahatchee, FL offer monkeys for adoption. A person can adopt a monkey as long as he or she has the proper caregiving skills and documentation.

The adoptee must obtain a certificate from the state that acknowledges the individual is capable of caring for the monkey.
