Howler Supports Costa Rica’s Centers Adoptions
The animal rescue community in Costa Rica is very active and very necessary. When I moved here in 2014, problems with stray animals In the area were apporent. However. I learned that many active groups had made significant headway over the years in educating local pet owners to take care of their animals and treat them as members of their families.
This is thanks to the dedication of numerous groups and volunteers making sure that the spay and neuter clinics operate often. Efforts to avoid the birth of animals destined for abandonment or abuse have been successful It still astonishes me to see the long lineups at spay and neuter clinicx. It’s a never-ending concern requiring daily attention.
Those who operate animal rescue and protection groups in Costa Rica need many forms of help and support. Forever homes for adoptable pets an: just one example. Finding is also an ongoing need to be effective and successful I Please donate whenever possible to ensure animals are never denied the medical care, food, and housing they need.
Remember, there is always another vulnerable animal waiting to get in. So it is very important to find loving forever homes for the pets that have already been rescued, checked out, medically treated and now ready for adoption. They just want to love you.

This puppy had been mistreated and then abandoned. One Lovely Lady put her in a foster home hoping to fly her to the States. Instead, she kept Kia in the foster home until I arrived in Costa Rica. Kia is close w 3 years old and we’ve been together since Aug 10, 2010.
We moved here with our two rescue pets, an orange bob-tailed cat. Rex. and our dog. Titan in January 2019. Since then. we’ve adopted 2 street cats- one from Brasilito and another from Potrero. Cali. the calico. we took in after slowly gaining her trust.
The love that I could see in their eyes was so pure that I understood that they already had a pact. Today Tauro is a beautiful dog. Trained. Obedient. Loving. A real champion… Lol, he even has an Instagram account
Tootsie This is ‘footsie (he’s a boy). We rescued him as a small kit-ten in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia He flew with us to Costa Rica in 2015 and will emigrate to Can-ada as soon as flights open up. A true rags to riches story for our ‘Toots”! Unfortunately, the expat life-style has left him with a small drinking problem…the start of mydaughters first year in Uni-versity in Halifax.
