Where Broken Hearts Are Mended
OPR Coastal Primate Sanctuary
OPR is a USDA licensed sanctuary. We are an independent, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that was first established on a small acreage in Dallas, Oregon in 1998. In 2008, OPR was blessed with a secluded, 28 acre Sanctuary in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Safely nestled among fir trees and surrounded by nature, this is where OPR Coastal Primate Sanctuary now resides. This truly is a place where monkeys thrive!

Unlike a zoo, we are not open to the general public
The health and emotional well-being of our resident primates is our number one concern. Many of our residents have
experienced trauma or cruel abuse in their previous homes which resulted in devastating emotional or behavioral issues.
Having unattended visitors can be very stressful for them. So in order to allow the primates privacy in their sanctuary
home, continued healing, and avoid unnecessary stress, OPR does not provide open hours to the general public.
Scheduled on site and off site educational presentations are available for various adult groups during the warmer spring and summer months.
