OPR is a USDA licensed sanctuary. We are an
independent, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that was
first established on a small acreage in Dallas Oregon in
In 2008 we were blessed with a secluded 28 acre
sanctuary in beautiful Longview, Washington. Safely
nestled among the fir trees and surrounded by nature,
this truly is a place where the monkeys feel at home!
Oregon Primate Rescue has adopted the name "OPR
Coastal Primate Sanctuary" due to our new location
and not wanting to appear geographically specific.

The mission of OPR is to provide lifetime care in a humane and enriching environment to unwanted,
orphaned or crippled monkeys that originate from private owners, from government agencies, and to
those retiring from a life of research.
OPR raises awareness of the complexities involved in keeping primates as pets, and to discuss adult
or aberrant behaviors caused by various aspects of captive life, in hopes of reducing the number of
unwanted primates in the private sector. OPR stresses the importance of preserving wildlife habitat,
and how human encroachment affects primate species in the wild.
OPR offers health, diet, enrichment and management information to all who care for captive
primates, to promote humane conditions for primates maintained in all captive environments.
