Want to hang with monkeys? Sanctuary for unwanted exotic pets needs your help

A nonprofit group in the Santa Clarita Valley has become a sanctuary for unwanted exotic pets that cannot be returned to the wild -- and now it needs a little help.

Animal Tracks Inc. in Agua Dulce aims to educate the public about these animals with up close encounters. The sanctuary takes care of animals that were illegally kept as exotic pets or have been used at the circus or in movies.

FOX 11's Matt Johnson got to hang there Tuesday morning! Watch the video above.
