For sale for the first time is the Costa Rica Animal Rescue Center in Turrucares, Alajuela.  Situated about 30 minutes due west of the SJO airport, this facility not only earns enough money to pay for itself but it also comes with a 4/2 home and caretakers quarters.

If you have ever wanted to start an animal rescue, you don’t have to.  You can buy one!  The operation has been in business for 20 years and it is time for the owners to retire and focus on their health.  Revenue is generated from veterinarian interns, volunteers, donations, walk-in ticket sales and a robust cruise ship deal which bring tourists by the bus load.

This 8-acre property is developed with cages and facilities throughout to accommodate the many animals who simply cannot be released back to the wild due to abuse, illegal captivation or trade or injury.  But the goal is to release as many back to the wild as possible and to educate the public of the importance of helping those who cannot help themselves.

Please visit their website at for more information and pictures of the facility.
