Nosara Animal Care (NAC) is a Costa Rican based, nonprofit, animal welfare organization located in Nosara, Costa Rica. NAC’s mission is to provide quality health care for Nosara’s most vulnerable animals. They rehabilitate homeless, injured, and sick animals and find them loving homes. The rescue/rehab program takes all at-risk animals, restores them to health, and houses them until they are adopted. NAC also works with the community through educational programs to promote animal health. Additionally, NAC has a low-cost spay/neuter program and offers low-cost veterinary care for at-risk animals living in low-income homes. The goal is to eliminate animal suffering and promote compassion.
The Guanacaste Community Fund supported NAC in initiating its Super Dueños Education Program. This educational program teaches 4th grade children to treat animals with kindness and respect. After completion of the program, parents are invited to attend a forum to discuss what their children have learned about animal care.
