Sophie's Haven Primate & Exotic Animal Rescue was established in May of 2003, after Victoria rescued a little, approximately 6 month old Rhesus/Java hybrid that was living in a very small dog carrier with the bottom covered in feces & old decaying food.
This little monkey, who was later named Abou, was a very wild little primate that had never been handled by a human and had been abandoned, along with over 50 other primates to starve to death by a breeder.
He then wound up with a Animal Broker who kept him in a very small pet carrier, living in filth, with no enrichment of any kind!
Unfortunately, this type of abuse happens daily !
This little guy and the horrific living conditions he endured, moved Victoria to establish Sophie's Haven Primate & Exotic Animal Rescue, to create a Forever home for displaced Exotic Animals, filled with enrichment & love.
