Monkey Helpers for the Disabled
We have all heard of the wonderful dogs that help- and assist blind people. Now, we Monkeys are doing our best to help humans who are slightly disabled and need help and companionship.
We are a non-profit organization that helps adults with spinal cord injuries and other mobility impairments live more independent and engaged lives. We do this by providing them, free of charge, with a unique service animal: a highly trained capuchin monkey to help with their daily tasks. The only organization of our kind, we raise and train these special service animals, carefully match them with appropriate recipients across the nation, and provide active support and care for the duration of each placemen
