I am looking for a zoo which offers a "behind the scenes" encounter with monkeys, ideally in North East USA/Canada.

In Australia, many zoos offer special animal encounters which enable you to pay extra and see "behind the scenes" for some of the animals at the zoo. Depending on the animal, you can feed the animal, learn more about their care from the animal handler, and sometimes even interact with the animal.
Are there any zoos in North Eastern USA/Canada which offer a similar experience, particularly with a monkey exhibit?
I have seen this old question
and those answers, combined with my experiences in Australia, suggest that maybe zoos in the US are more strict about these kind of encounters?
