About Joey

Joey was stolen from the wild as a baby and kept as a pet in wardrobe-sized cage for 9 years in a flat in Camden, London. He arrived at our Sanctuary in August 2007. Due to a lack of exercise, poor diet, cramped living conditions and lack of sunlight, Joey had developed severe nutritional bone disease leading to many irreversible disabilities. More disturbingly, on arrival at our Sanctuary he displayed abnormal behaviours, such as rocking backward and forwards; signs of severe psychological damage caused by boredom and stress. We were initially pessimistic about Joey's chances of survival but his zest for life surprised us all. He is a truly resilient and inspiring character; stealing the hearts of all that meet him.  

Adopting Joey means that you are helping to provide the resources needed to give Joey 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.
