Symbolic Animal Adoption

Symbolic adopt a JRC AnimalOur animal family at the Jaguar Rescue Center is growing every day. Hundreds of animals are received each year, many of them victims of trafficking and hunting; others are orphaned babies who require constant care and attention over long periods of time.

Each animal rehabilitated in the rescue center, comes with a large expense, which can at times be difficult for us to cover. Depending on the species and the animal, the cost of feeding, veterinary treatments, medical supplies and construction of enclosures can quickly add up.

Adopt a Costa Rica SlothWhen you choose to make a symbolic adoption of one of our animals, you are helping to cover part of the expenses incurred and support the rescue and rehabilitation process. A $100 donation is required to adopt the animal of your choice for one year. While this donation is greatly appreciated it hardly covers the weekly expenses for even one animal, so any additional contributions are greatly appreciated.

By symbolically adopting one of the amazing animals below you will receive:

  •  A personalized certificate of adoption
  •  Background story of the animal you adopted with more high resolution photos.

Once you have chosen your animal and we have received your payment we will send you an email asking you for the name to put on the certificate. If you do not receive an email from us within 24 hours please contact us via email at [email protected]

*Please note that we send all documents in PDF format via Email.


Diavolino

Diavolino

After being confiscated by the Police between the border of Costa Rica and Panama as a victim of the illegal pet trade, Diavolino was brought in malnourished and weak. This feisty little Margay was one of the first wildcats that the JRC ever received! When adopting Diavolino, 100% of the proceeds will be helping us, help them!

Gnocchi

Gnocchi

This baby two-toed sloth is more than just a cute face! Many of our baby sloths arrive at the JRC after being orphaned or abandoned by their mothers. When they appear healthy, we try recording their cry and go back to the area they were found to see if their mother will respond to their cry. In the case of Gnocchi, and many others, we were not able to find the mother. When adopting Gnocchi, 100% of the proceeds will be helping us, help them!

Floqui

Floqui

Floqui is one of the most unique sloths the JRC has ever received! Why? He is a 2 toed sloth born with only one 'toe' on each hand and foot! We can’t be sure why he was born with this genetic defect but we have a few theories. When adopting Floqui, the proceeds will be going towards tracking sloths with radio collars.

Sparky

Sparky

One of the strongest sloths you’ll ever meet! Sparky is a 2 toed sloth that survived one of the worst electrocutions we have ever seen at the JRC. Adopt Sparky and you will learn about his incredible road to recovery as well as support our “Shock Free Zone” Campaign. This campaign is designed specifically to help make the powerlines safer for animals!

Sisi

Sisi

The sweet collared peccary, Sisi! She came from a farm where her owner was concerned about her lack of appetite and rapid weight loss. As she was recovering from a surgery that removed the blockage in her intestines, we began falling in love with her. Little did we know, she was in need of a much more serious surgery. Adopt Sisi and find out why she looks so silly! When adopting Sisi, 100% of the proceeds will be helping us, help them!

Morgana

Morgana

Colorful not only describes the beauty of this Keel Billed Toucan but her personality as well! Morgana was just a young fledgling when she was found on the ground at La Ceiba Natural Reserve. We suspect she fell from her nest and now suffers brain damage. When adopting Morgana, 100% of the proceeds will be helping us, help them!

Rico

Rico

You’ve never met a more spoiled monkey than Rico! Rico, a Howler Monkey, arrived as a baby with fractures to his shoulder that left him crying in pain. After spending nearly a month under Encar’s constant care the pain finally subsided, but their bond didn’t! When adopting Rico, 100% of the proceeds will be helping us, help them!

Filomena

Filomena

The last of 12 green sea turtles that came in the middle of the night, July 2019. All having been confiscated from poachers with harpoon wounds in their shells and their fins tied together. One passed away and the rest have been released! Filomena is still at the JRC due to the severity of her wounds. When adopting Filomena the proceeds will be used for a salt water swimming pool for her and the sea creatures that come to the JRC in the future!
