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.

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!

Sparky

Sparky

One of the strongest sloths you’ll ever meet! Sparky is a Two-Fingered Sloth that survived one of the worst electric shocks we have ever seen at the JRC. Adopt Sparky and you will be supporting our ‘Shock Free Zone Campaign’. This campaign is designed specifically to help make the power lines safer for animals!

 

 

 

 

Georgis

Sparky

Georgis will melt your heart. She is a howler monkey that arrived newborn with only 10-15 days old. Georgis fell from a tree in an urban area, we played her howl in a speaker but because of the noise and people density her troop did not come back for her. She is very charismatic and loves to play. Georgis will start a process to learn how to be wild and when she gets old enough she will join a troop at the center to be released together. When adopting Georgis, 100% of the proceeds will help us help them!

 

 

 

Floqui

Floqui

Floqui is one of the most unique sloths the JRC has ever received! Why? He is a Two-Fingered Sloth born with only one digit 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.

Gnocchi

Gnocchi

This baby Two-Fingered 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 a baby sloth seems healthy and appears to have simply fallen from a tree, we try recording their cries and going back to the tree where they were found to see if their mother will respond to their baby’s call. 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!

Scarlet & Panettone

Sparky

Scarlet and Panettone are always together and love to do mischief at the center. Scarlet lived in captivity during her first three years of life and was confiscated by authorities. Because her natural behavior was altered, she has a very strong attachment to people and her lack of natural instinct makes it difficult for her to survive in the wild. Panettone is a Great Green Macaw that was brough at the center because it fell from the nest and fractured its wing, because of this it will not be able to fly again. They both serve as education ambassadors about the consequences of captivity of wild species and about the critical endangered of extinction of the Great Green Macaw.

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!

Sansa

Sparky

Sansa is a female spider monkey who was found when she was a baby in Gandoca. She was on the ground after being pulled off of her mother by a male spider monkey, during a fight between two troops. She has a lot of personality and never stops teasing the other monkeys. Sadly, she’s slowly becoming blind and we are now looking for a treatment for her. When adopting Sansa, 100% of the proceeds will be helping us, help them!

 

 

Makena

Makena

Makena is the sweetest two-finger sloth of the center. She is the most active of the baby sloths and a lover of hibiscus flowers. Makena arrived because her mother was attacked by dogs and unfortunately died. Sloth mothers will protect their children by placing them in their belly and covering them with their body. By adopting Makena you will be part of her two years process completing sloth kindergarten, elementary school, middle/high school and sloth university which is the final step of pre-release!
