The kindness from our friends around the world as well as here in Costa Rica has truly made a difference in the lives of so many animals.

Cally Barnes

Cally Barnes

Cally Barnes, a past volunteer, ran the London Marathon on April 28th. She worked hard to get sponsors before the race and was able to raise and donate $836 to the Rescue. We are so appreciative Cally... thank you so much for your kindness and generous donation. Cally told us to use the donation for what we felt was best so we decided to allocate the funds to finish the raccoon/coati new enclosure. There have been numerous donations towards this project and we plan to recognize all of them with a visual plaque when its finished. Side note...Cally also ran the race in 4 hours and 6 seconds. Great job!
