Dexter arrived unexpectedly on Independence Day! He was less than two years old when he arrived. Luckily Dexters humans realized he needed more monkey socialization and drove him to the sanctuary all the way from Kansas. They also came back to visit him for the next few days which helped Dexter know that Jungle Friends was indeed a safe place. 

We are hoping to get Dexter socialized with an older female that will take on the "mom" role for him.
