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.

The following videos were made and shared by our amazing volunteers! By watching these, you will get a very authentical idea about our Rescue Center, our work and more over: our rescues! We are very thankful that our volunteers took the time and the effort to create those videos!

Thanks to volunteer Agata Pietrzak! She said: "The Costa Rica Animal Center. A place where animals are provided a safe environment to grow, heal and flourish. The success of the center is based solely on the efforts and donations of its volunteers. No matter how small or large- every donation makes a difference and allows the centre to continue its incredible work with these animals.
