Located in Dilley, Texas, the API Primate Sanctuary is home to more than 400 nonhuman primates — many of whom were rescued from abusive situations in laboratories, roadside zoos, and private possession — and gives them a second chance for a more natural life. You can give our sanctuary residents the gift of a brighter tomorrow when you “adopt” one of them today. Your monthly or annual donation helps API provide food, care, and rehabilitation to these individuals.

You may choose to adopt a snow monkey, vervet, or baboon — each of whom has his or her own rescue story and comes with a Welcome Kit complete with full-color photo, certificate of adoption, and the semi-annual newsletter, The Primate Post. Your adoption donation is tax-deductible to the full extent of the law, and we will provide you with a receipt for your records. Click here for more information.

Thank you for speaking out to protect captive primates!
