Petey was a spider monkey who was rescued from a life of horrible neglect in April of 2002, his condition upon arriving here so dire that our veterinarian feared he’d last only days. But this amazing monkey defied the odds, fighting his way out of intensive care with a will that inspired us all. Although he remained permanently disabled as a result of his ordeal, Petey bonded with the other spider monkeys and lived a comfortable life until his demise.
