The Costa Rica Animal Rescue Center is privately owned and receives no government support or grants. We receive animals that are injured and need medical care and attention. Our number one priority is always to rescue, rehabilitate and ultimately release. However, many of the animals we have at the current time and ones that will be brought to us in the future will never be released. They will become permanent residents at CRARC and it's our job to ensure they live a safe, rewarding and fulfilled life. At the current time we have over 130 permanent animals who need proper enclosures, nutritious diets and proper medical care. Payment for these items comes from the generosity of our volunteers and donors. All donations big and small are always appreciated but never expected.
