Volunteer travel at Rescue Center Costa Rica

The Rescue Center is dedicated to protect and help endangered Costa Rican wildlife indigenous to our beautiful country. First and foremost, our goal is to ensure the welfare of injured animals and help them recover from their physical and psychological wounds.

We staff a team of experienced veterinarians who work at our on-site hospital in addition to the thousands of volunteers from around the world who have helped us over the past 10+ years.

We rescue, rehabilitate and when possible release the animals back to their natural habitat. We are privately owned and receive no government help financially. The passion of the owners, dedication of our staff and generosity of our volunteers, interns and donors makes everything possible.

Register for our Costa Rica volunteer trips and you will get work hands-on with many different animals including but not limited to monkeys, sloths, kinkajou, coati, raccoons, possum and exotic birds. Also, in addition to your work with the animals you get to experience first-hand all the beauty and adventure Costa Rica has to offer. Each week we run tours throughout different places around the country including Jaco Beach, Manuel Antonio National Park, Monteverde Cloud Forest and Arenal Volcano. The tours are private and we supply all food and transportation from our team of experienced, safe drivers.

We don't believe we can solve all of the world's problems but we do believe the work we do makes the world just a little bit better. We hope you feel the same way and if you do please click the links above and join our team as a donor, intern or volunteer.

Travel. Volunteer. Have Fun. Make a Difference.

Pura Vida!
