Stop Government from Purchasing Tortured Monkeys

This baby monkey was rescued from a laboratory.

Target: The Honourable Rona Ambrose MP, Minister of Health, Public Health Agency of Canada

Goal: End your ties with the abusive distributer Primate Products, Inc.

Primate Products, Inc. is a Florida-based monkey dealer that was recently cited by the USDA for seriously abusing its animals. In fact, the federal government issued more than 25 violations against the company. The Public Health Agency of Canada has recently placed an order for monkeys from PPI, and we must stop it from seeing the purchase through. Encourage the Canadian government to cut its ties with PPI.

Primate Products, Inc. imports wild and factory-bred primates to sell them into cruel animal experimentation. PPI monkeys suffer digit and tail amputations, have their teeth pulled out, and are kept in conditions so cold they suffer frostbite. Monkeys are not given anesthesia or pain medication during and after experiments, and the U.S. Congress continues to investigate additional allegations against the company.

It is mind boggling that Canada would purchase monkeys from an organization that has well-documented animal rights violations. It is bad enough that our northern neighbors are purchasing monkeys in the first place, but to buy them from a company that has been issued USDA violations is even worse. We must end this abusive retailer’s business. Demand Canada cancels all orders and cuts ties with Primate Products, Inc.


Your Honour,

I am extremely distressed to learn that the Public Health Agency of Canada has ordered monkeys from the American primate retailer Primate Products, Inc. This monkey dealer is notoriously cruel to the animals it imports and exports, and it has been issued USDA violations for animal cruelty. In fact, PPI remains under close congressional watch.

Monkeys imported to PPI are ripped from their natural environment or born and raised on squalid and inhumane factory farms. The animals are then subjected to severe neglect and torturous acts while in PPI possession and sold into inhumane animal testing. Why would Canada desire to do business with such a horrific company?

The animal abuse at PPI is well documented; there is no doubt as to the horrible things committed to the monkeys in PPI’s care. Please do not solicit this inhumane monkey dealer. Please cancel your orders for monkeys from Primate Products, Inc., and stop the cruel and inhumane treatment of primates by cutting your ties with this disgusting retailer.
