PATA Samara Animal Rescue operates solely on the generosity of donors like you. As a legal non-profit in Costa Rica, we receive no government or charity funding, making your support crucial for our survival.


Every month, it costs us $4,082 on average to provide essential care for the animals. This includes:

  • $1,102 for refuge rent and utilities,

  • $830 for supplies,

  • $636 for vet services,

  • $576 for food,

  • $374 for medications,

  • $236 for petrol,

  • $188 for merchandise,

  • $140 for castration clinics.


Everybody at PATA is a volunteer, including Sally and Emma. We are all dedicating our time and effort to rescue and rehabilitate animals.


Despite organizing fundraisers, maintaining financial stability is incredibly challenging due to the high number of animals in need in the Samara area. Many of the animals we rescue arrive in terrible conditions, suffering from malnutrition, tick fever, injuries, and/or neglect. The initial costs of taking in these animals are substantial, as they often require immediate medical attention, rehabilitation, and ongoing care for months before they can be adopted. It costs on average $500 to rescue a new dog. 


Additionally, we extend our support to local families by helping their dogs and cats whenever possible. This community outreach increases our financial needs, making regular donations even more critical.

Your monthly donations ensure that we can continue to provide consistent, high-quality care and respond to emergencies promptly.


Without sufficient funds, our ability to save and support these animals is severely limited.
