Help END Inhumane Primate Trade
Action Alert from

FROM AAVS American Anti-Vivisection Society
April 2019


A bill that would put a stop to people owning pet monkeys was introduced in the House of Representatives last month. If enacted, the Captive Primate Safety Act would prohibit the import, export, sale, and transport of any non-human primate.

Although baby monkeys may look cute and cuddly, they soon grow strong and become more aggressive, as they start acting on their natural, wild instincts.

 Owners will then often confine the monkeys to small cages and have their teeth pulled. A few lucky ones make it to a sanctuary. But oftentimes, these facilities are also caring for primates who have been released from labs. This further strains valuable resources, making it more difficult for sanctuaries to provide refuge to animals released from labs.

Thank you for everything you do for animals!
