    Does anyone know anything about this place? It's where the "IKEA monkey" was taken and there are huge arguments on Facebook between the supporters of his previous owner and supporters of this place. It doesn't look wonderful in the photos but it's possible the animals are well cared for. Has anyone seen it?

    This is definitely a rebutable sanctuary. The primates are taken care of very well, and several experts on primates and animals (such as Toronto Zoo staff) are involved/volunteer there. Definitely a credible sanctuary.

    Thanks for this, you can't tell properly from photos.
