Twenty-five years ago, Barbara Deppe came to Costa Rica from Germany with a passion for animals and the purpose of starting an animal rescue center. She set out to help the many homeless, sick and forgotten animals in her area and give them a second chance at life. Over the years she has helped thousands of street animals and mistreated pets through spay and neuter clinics, responding to urgent rescue calls and rehabilitating abandoned wildlife.

‘It’s rewarding work and
I wouldn’t want to be doing anything else.’

Since Barbara’s rescue center never releases animals back into the street, she is always looking for loving homes where animals can be adopted. She also personally looks after the sick, old and unadoptable animals in her Flamingo facility, ensuring they receive food, care and most importantly, the love they deserve.

“I am so appreciative of all the support the community gives me,” Deppe says. “I couldn’t help as many animals as I do if it weren’t for volunteers and donations. I’ll never understand how some people can treat animals or not care for their pets. It’s rewarding work and I wouldn’t want to be doing anything else.”

Help support Barbara’s Rescue Center at the 7th annual Dog Day Afternoon fundraiser on Sunday, March 22, 2020 at Camaron Dorado in Brasilito. Starting at 4 p.m., the festivities include live music, a live art painting, live and silent auctions and a 50/50 draw. You are sure to have a great time, and even the opportunity to add a new member to your family! Also be assured that 100% of the proceeds from this fun event go towards helping care for animals however they need it most.
