Apes and monkeys have been used as lab subjects, entertainment animals and even tried as household pets for decades. As a result, many primates have suffered emotional and physical traumas and need our help!

Fortunately, the Primate Rescue Center exists to provide a safe haven for these wounded animals. We work tirelessly to undo past traumas by providing physical and emotional rehabilitation to each individual we rescue. 

Over the last 30 years, the center has expanded to house over fifty primates, including 8 chimpanzees who live together as a family group, 1 siamang gibbon and over ten species of monkeys. Our sanctuary currently occupies 30 acres of land in central Kentucky, with buildings and grounds designed to afford the residents a quiet, peaceful place to spend their lives. Most of the primates have traumatic pasts and we have evolved a distinguished rehabilitation and recovery process in order to give them a second chance at life.


It is our mission to relieve the suffering of primates wherever it occurs. We dedicate our time and energy to providing rescued primates with the care and comfort they deserve. The Primate Rescue Center is a tax-exempt, nonprofit organization that receives no direct funding from the federal government or the state of Kentucky. We rely on the donations of passionate, caring individuals to sustain the medical, psychological and biological needs of the residents.
