Om programmet

Our rescue center is considered one of the best animal Volunteer program in Costa Rica. We are located in Alajuela Town ,on a 10 acre farm which is just short drive from Juan Santamaria International Airport. 

We have an on-site hospital staffed by dedicated vets/interns and comfortable living quarters which can house up to 60+ volunteers at any time. The animal enclosures include but are not limited to an aviary, sloth gardens, and monkey cages all surrounded by nature in order to allow the animals a place as close to their natural habitat as they recover from their wounds.

It's amazing how much of a tight-knit community we've become. With one common goal of caring for injured and displaced wildlife, we have built a family of caring, likeminded people who truly want to make a difference.We work incredibly hard, but our reward isn't financial in nature. Instead, it's seeing the animals we care for survive and thrive. Our Costa Rican volunteer program is instrumental in making that happen.

We have welcomed thousands of volunteers over the years from countries around the world. The passion and commitment they bring to our program has made everything possible for us to continue not to mention the countless injured animals who have been saved. The experience and friendships you make at our program will last a lifetime and the difference you make will be noticed and remembered for years to come.

Very friendly staff but I feel like they could do way more for the animals!
