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 Rescue Center - Paradero Paradise!

After being forced to move from Moín, near Puerto Limón, in March 2015, the center found a new, but temporary, home in San Miguel, Alajuela. The location was sadly much too small for our animals and volunteers and so a the search for a new location began immediately!
Luckily just a short drive down the road, in Cebadilla, we found a fantastic site with little rivers, medows, hills and big beautiful fruit trees! It suits our animals and volunteers perfectly  and we began the move here in June 2016; with lots of volunteers helping in the process - who we are eternally grateful for! We are still working every day on improving the place and enclosures but so far we built a animal hospital, a huge aviary, two sloth gardens and various big monkey cages, including trees and equipped with many enrichment items to keep our rescued ones active - physically and cognitive. 




New enclosures are being build on the property all the time, with staff working non stop and even volunteers helping! Enclosures are built with entirely donated materials and according to designs the rescue center staff have developed through experience and advise. 

For more information on our enclosures please feel free to visit our ''Enclosures and Enrichment'' Page.


In the evenings you can take amoment and enjoy the romantic Costa Rican sunset over the tree tops...
Pura vida.
