The day Charlotte fans have been waiting for...brave little Charlotte finally took her first steps out into Gismo troop today to join her new family. This little lady has overcome so much after being shot in the head with a pellet gun. We are all so happy for her Charlotte was exploring all the trees and having lots of fun. Tonight she decided to go back home to her intro cage with female Uh-Oh but will go out again tomorrow. #nevergiveup #everythingispossible PC @punilu ...

Orphans whose mum's were killed by cars...Kappi & Roddy fast asleep. There were storms today so they spent the day in the indoor baby area called Loveland with their human carer and cozy hot water bottles. #monkeysarenotpets #primaterescue PC @connie.needham ...

Orphans Kappi & Roddy are doing great together both are drinking their milk well. They had just had a drink so they aren't hungry but they do look for comfort now and again which is natural as they don't have their mum's teats. So for now they get comfort from other monkeys and their human carers who are with them 24hrs a day #monkeysarenotpets PC @connie.needham ...

Charlotte has been playing a lot lately and also pulling at the door to the troop to go out, here she is with foster mum Uh-Oh. The 2 of them will go out into Gismo troop this week, exciting for Charlotte who was shot in the head by a pellet gun not so long ago. #nevergiveup #everythingispossible PC @punilu ...

Orphan Roddy is just 8 days old, look how well he's drinking from a bottle now. It takes a lot of time and perseverance to get them drinking from a bottle but they do need to be able to so they can meet their monkey foster mum at 6 weeks old for their next steps iin their rehabilitation. We have had some messages asking why we don't post many photos of his human carers computing him and holding him, this is because of the sad fact that some people still try to keep them as pets or sell them. No primate should be kept as a pet, they belong with their own kind in a wild environment. Rest assured Roddy is with a human carer 24 hours a day getting all the love, care and support for him to thrive. #primatesarenotpets ...

Charlotte sandwiched between foster mum Uh-oh on the left and Poppy on the right. Still going good at Gismo integrations. We just have her spending a little more bonding time with the alphas like Plotty before she joins the troop to ensure she has enough protection in her new extended family. Look out for the new Charlotte adoption online... PC @connie.needham ...

Orphan Roddy is getting more confident and strong by the day, here he is taking a few steps... he's now on 3 hourly feeds at night as he is drinking milk well which also means his human carers can get a whole extra hour sleep too 🙂 #primatesarenotpets #primaterescue #monkeysanctuary ...

Update on little orphan Roddy now 4 days old. His mum was killed by a car and he still had his umbilical cord attached. He's doing fantastic, listen to the commentary by VMF baby mum @connie.needham . He will need to stay in human care for at least the next 5 weeks but then we will be happy to see him get a monkey foster mum and be hands off from people so he can live as wild a life as possible. #notpets #primatesarenotpets #primaterescue ...

Roddy's second day at the sanctuary as he's just woken up. He is doing very well and drinking more milk. We can already see he's going to be quite a little character and look forward to the day he will meet a monkey foster mum. As he's so young it's important we try to mimic what they would do in the wild which at his age is basically clinging on to mum, getting a bit of a groom and suckling (in this case from a bottle). He doesn't have any teeth yet so won't be starting solid foods until a few weeks time. PC Hana Bruger ...
