In Monkeys Don’t Wear Diapers: Heartwarming and Heartbreaking Stories from a Monkey Sanctuary, Polly Schultz tells the stories of a special group of monkeys who have come to OPR Coastal Primate Sanctuary, which Polly founded and continues to direct. Some of the monkeys at OPR came from merely misinformed people who meant no harm, but had no idea how to care for a monkey. Others were horribly mistreated by abusive owners, who reacted with anger or abandonment when the bewildered animal failed to become a tame and docile pet. One was rescued from the smugglers who stole him from his wild family. Still others were brought in as retirees from research institutions. All have unique and amazing stories.
