Support our Capuchin appeal

Our very first rescued monkey was Martin the Capuchin. It was a big day for us when he arrived at the Haven over a decade ago.

There have been lots of changes over the past 10 years as our charity has expanded to care for all kinds of creatures in need. The Capuchins have always been very special to us and now we have a little family of these mischievous monkeys.

Please help us build them a beautiful new des res by:

  • donating by text, or online below
  • adopting a Capuchin or
  • visiting us when you can.

Meet the Rhesus Macaques

Rhesus Macaques share 93% of our DNA – around 25 million years ago we would have been the same species!

They live in troops of up to 200 in the wild. The females run the show and how important a monkey is within the group will depend on who their mum is.

Spok is the joker of the pack. He was named after Mr Spock from Star Trek due to his pointy ears. He was born here. His mum, Tammy, was pregnant when she came to the Haven – but we had no idea, so it was quite a shock when little Spok was born!


Star supporters

We are grateful to every single person who visits the Haven or tells their friends about us or writes a review on TripAdvisor. A big thank you also goes to everyone who donates their money or time to help us care for animals in need. Every animal adoption is much appreciated too. And every single gift chosen from our Wish List gives the animals and staff a lovely boost.

Thank you, everyone. You’re all awesome!

Sponsor us!

We have a limited number of opportunities for individuals and businesses to sponsor an enclosure at Monkey Haven. All sponsors have a custom-made plaque outside their animals’ enclosure, and we’ll also thank you on our website. As an added bonus, due to our charitable status, certain donations and sponsorships will qualify for tax relief.

Sponsorship runs for one year with prices depending on the size of the enclosure and the popularity of the animals. By sponsoring an enclosure, you will be helping our primate rescue centre to expand and develop… and the monkeys (and our staff) will be extremely grateful!
