Primate Legal & Regulations

Each state has different laws regarding the keeping of any primate. Before buying on impulse because you want one, think about the consequences if you buy one in an illegal state.  If you are caught, (which will happen) is it worth loving something so much and watching it all disappear?

STATES WITH NO REQUIREMENTS FOR PRIVATE POSSESSION OF NONHUMAN PRIMATES:
Alabama, Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, Wisconsin


STATES WHICH REQUIRE A PERMIT:
Delaware, Idaho, Michigan, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Dakota, Washington

SERVICE ANIMALS WHICH HAVE THEIR OWN LAW TO TRAVEL WITH NON-HUMAN PRIMATES:

  Primate owners whom think the fake ID badge from S.A.R.A or any other orgnization for Service Animal Registry is real, think again.  As of 03/01/2011 no primates (except those whom are court certified before 03/01/2011) will be grandfathered in.  If you do not have a court certified service monkey, you will not be able to travel on planes, nor to other states.  Anyone whom illegal travels with these fake ID's will be fined, and or their primate/primates taken away.  All airlines have been notified, so think before you travel.
