Looking For A New Fur Family Member?
Each year Costa Rica gets more progressive regarding the humane treatment of animals. Some think….how is it possible that a developing nation might be so progressive?
Well, this small Central American nation happens to have some of the most advanced laws when it comes to protecting animals. This breakthrough came in 2003, when the first law that prohibits euthanasia as a method of pet population control was passed.
- Help train communities, like Guayabo, to organize low-cost spay/neuter clinics.
- Offer support, in the from of educational programs, and adoption services to bring more awareness to the need.
- Involve more private veterinarians to offer lower cost services, and also have organizations like ours offer medical support when able.
- People here do love their pets – it’s time we offer more support!

Meet Princesa. This sweet 7 month old puppy came to us by another rescue (PABSA) who didn’t have any space to take her in. We are happy to be able to help, especially because she is so very sweet. Princesa does need to gain weight as she was severely emaciated. She once had owners, but they moved away without taking her with them and left her alone and starving. If you can open your heart for this sweet puppy, please do!Meet Princesa
Meet Anna. This super loving and sweet momma is in need of a great new attentive family. She nursed her puppies to health even after being abandoned in the woods far away from any possible support.

Adoption Application Process
If you want to adopt from another country, it is possible, but of course more paperwork is needed. We can help ‘walk’ you through the process. You do have to also consider the airlines, as some do not allow dogs to ride with you in the cabin, and checking a dog in as luggage is not something we recommend. There are some airlines (private and commercial) that allow a larger dog to ride inside the cabin area. Again, we can assist you with the various options.
Thank you for your interest, as it truly takes a village!
