Welcome to Rescue Center Costa Rica! A nonprofit organization that relies on our global community and your donation. Here, we have a team of veterinarians, interns and volunteers, who not only take care of our furry friends but also make sure that they get all the love and attention they need. Our facility is equipped with comfortable living quarters which can accommodate up to 100 volunteers at any time.
We are proud to have an aviary, sloth gardens, and monkey enclosures full of enrichment that replicate a similarity to their natural habitats where animals can recover from their wounds or injuries. We even introduce some species into these spaces so that they can learn how to live together peacefully while enjoying the beauty of nature around them.
Here at Rescue Center Costa Rica every patient gets exactly what they need: love and attention from people who truly care about them and Costa Rica’s wildlife.
The Rescue Center is dedicated to protect and help endangered Costa Rican wildlife indigenous to our beautiful country. First and foremost, our goal is to ensure the welfare of injured animals and help them recover from their physical and psychological wounds. We staff a team of experienced veterinarians who work at our on-site hospital in addition to the thousands of volunteers from around the world who have helped us over the past 10+ years.
We rescue, rehabilitate and when possible release the animals back to their natural habitat. We are a non-profit and receive no government help financially. The passion of the owners, dedication of our staff and generosity of our volunteers and donors makes everything possible. We don't believe we can solve all of the world's problems but we do believe the work we do makes the world just a little bit better.
