About Story Book Farm Primate Sanctuary
Story Book Farm Primate Sanctuary is a sanctuary in Ontario which provides a permanent home for primates retiring from biomedical research, zoos, universities, pet stores, and private residences.
At Story Book Farm we believe all animals have rights: that animals have the right to live free of fear or pain from humans in any form and, that we can all make a difference, one being at a time.
Currently, we are home to 19 monkeys who come to us for peace and solace from a variety of backgrounds, some of them with stories difficult even to share, let alone survive.
We are supported by private donations and a solid base of volunteers, who have a combined experience in primate care and husbandry of over 100 years.
We appreciate each and every individual who support our residents.
Story Book Farm is a place of safety. We offer freedom from fear. We are a place of healing and recovery from trauma.
