Charlie's Angels Costa Rica



Charlie's Angels Animal Rescue Costa Rica is a compassionate and dedicated foster-based organization that tirelessly works to rescue and provide care for abandoned dogs and cats who have often suffered from extreme physical conditions or abuse.


Our top priority is ensuring that each animal receives the proper medical attention and care they need to make a full recovery. Before any of our rescues are adopted into loving homes, we make sure they are spayed / neutered, fully vaccinated, dewormed, and protected from fleas and ticks.

 At Charlie's Angels, we believe that every animal deserves a chance at a happy and healthy life. Thank you for your support in helping us give these deserving animals the second chance they deserve.


We are operating out of Rivas in the Perez Zeledon Region in the Southern zone of Costa Rica. The organization is officially registered as a non-profit charity association in Costa Rica and was founded in 2015. 


We rely on donations to sustain our rescue efforts, as the adoption fees alone are not enough to cover all our expenses

Foster Program:

Our rescue relies on the support of foster families who provide temporary homes for dogs until they find their forever families.

We believe that every dog deserves a second chance at a happy life, and our foster families are essential in making that possible.

By opening your heart and home to a foster dog, you provide them with love, care, and socialization needed to prepare them for adoption.

Our rescue provides all necessary supplies and medical care, as well as support and guidance to ensure a successful foster experience.

Monthly Pop-up Spay&Neuter Clinics:

We also hold monthly pop-up castration clinics with an excellent vet team from San Jose.

These clinics provide pet owners with an affordable way to spay/neuter their animals and help reduce the number of strays and unwanted pets in the community.


We want to stress that adopting an animal is super important, and we strongly discourage purchasing pets from breeders.

There are countless dogs and cats in need of loving homes, and by adopting, you are giving them a second chance at life.

If you are interested in fostering, adopting, or would like to learn more about our organization, please contact us today.

Together, we can give these animals the love and care they need to find their forever homes.

Rescue Center

Rescue Center

Although we had to close Charlie's Angels Animal Rescue Centre in July 2021 due to the workload becoming too much for our small team to manage, we're thrilled to report that our work hasn't stopped.

In fact, we're even happier to continue our mission with the help of our supportive and helpful Foster Homes. Despite the challenges brought about by the pandemic, we've been able to rescue and find homes for the same amount of animals as when the shelter was still in operation.

Thanks to our dedicated team and the unwavering support of our Foster Homes, we're able to keep making a positive impact on the lives of animals in need.

Spay & Neuter Clinics

Spay & Neuter Clinics

We're proud to offer monthly pop-up spay and neutering clinics for cats and dogs in remote areas where people have limited access to veterinary care.

Our clinics are always located in these areas to ensure that everyone has access to affordable and high-quality services.

The clinics are set up as pop-up clinics, and the licensed veterinarian arrives with her own mobile vet ambulance, fully equipped to perform the necessary procedures. Thanks to our team's dedication and commitment, we're able to bring these critical services to communities that otherwise may not have access to them.
