About Frosty

Frosty holds a very dear place in everyone's hearts as he was our first ever rescued capuchin monkey here at The Monkey Sanctuary! He arrived in 2001 after we were contacted by the agricultural college that were keeping him. The students had fed him chips and chocolate bars and he was so overweight and unhealthy when he arrived that he could barely climb around his enclosure. However, his former life is a thing of the past and he now enjoys a much healthier, balanced diet and he even has lots of ladies to chase around, which keeps him in shape! He lacked social skills on arrival, having being deprived of a natural social environment, but he is now the leader of his very own group of capuchins. He is a real character and very popular with both monkeys and humans alike! Since his arrival, he has seen upwards of twenty other capuchins arrive and be given a home for life - a far cry from his isolated start!

Adopting Frosty means that you are helping to provide the resources needed to give Frosty the best life possible. Your adoption also enables Wild Futures to continue its vital work campaigning for an end to the primate pet trade in the UK and abroad.

PLEASE NOTE: Our adoptions are purely symbolic and are a great way to support our sanctuary, where the monkeys shown on our website (who have been rescued from traumatic lives as peoples pets) have a home for life.
