Although we specialise in the care and protection of primates we cannot stand by and see other animals in need of help. You will therefore find wolf dogs, horses, donkeys, cattle, pigs, and others at our sanctuary.
At Wales Ape and Monkey Sanctuary we regularly receive requests from people who have animals in need of a new home.
As well as being an accredited Quarantine premises Wales Ape and Monkey Sanctuary has had Approval under the Balai Directive for 16 years. In the UK the Sanctuary is constantly under scrutiny by APHA (UK Veterinary Ministry), Zoo Inspectorate, Local Council Authority and Fire Protection Services.
