Primate Rescue Center

A sanctuary for primates in need

The Primate Rescue Center, in central Kentucky, is a nonprofit sanctuary that provides lifetime care to more than 50 monkeys and apes, including 11 chimpanzees.

In addition, we strive to alleviate the suffering of primates everywhere by working to toughen animal-protection laws and end the private trade in these animals, both in the U.S. and abroad.
