Comments: The monkeys at Frisky's Sanctuary are all ex pets. Choices were made to have a pet monkey are usually made by well meaning yet naive people who thought they could provide a good home. Frisky's Wildlife and Primate Sanctuary Inc.,is the answer to this problem. We were established to help those ex pet monkeys in need of a home. Kept in the life style in which they have grown accustomed to and or better. We have never had an escape or a health issue. With large secure, clean,and with many enrichments these monkeys are thriving.
