Costa Rica Animal Rescue Center

Dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of Costa Rican wildlife.

The Costa Rica Animal Rescue Center is a non-profit organization that gives animals a second chance at life. Our dedicated staff and selfless volunteers work tirelessly to help these animals heal, keep them safe, rehabilitate them, and eventually re-release them into their natural habitat in the Costa Rican rainforest.







At our center, we try to provide the best possible environment for the animals and we are keen to improve the conditions in every way we can. With the new center, we are now taking another step towards our goal to provide natural living conditions for the animals and we are happy to see the center developing. In order to be able to improve the conditions further, we are interested in feedback, ideas and questions from former employees, volunteers, or anyone who is interested in the welfare of animals.

If you have any suggestions or questions concerning the center, please contact us.
