Let’s save Costa Rica’s

wildlife together!

We've worked with the
best in the field.


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.
