Primates

Primarily Primates, Inc. (PPI) is a not-for-profit sanctuary providing permanent, lifetime care and housing for rescued animals, mostly primates. The animals residing in Sanctuary have been saved from biomedical research, the pet trade, and/or the entertainment industry. PPI cares for each animal individually and holistically, focusing on both physical and psychological health. PPI was founded in 1978, making it the first primate sanctuary in North America and the first to rescue chimpanzees requiring lifetime care following medical research. As a true sanctuary, PPI is not open to the general public and does not breed, sell, trade or use animals commercially. A community of supporters and collaborators keeps PPI energized and maintained. PPI is committed to giving each animal, for the remainder of her or his life, a life free of exploitation.
