In October of 2018, AHPPA Costa Rica rescued these dogs from a home where they were neglected and mistreated… Both malnourished and in need of immediate medical attention, our veterinarians started treatment and implemented a dietary plan envisioning a full recovery and possibility for adoption by a new family… Today, a little over 90 days later, we are happy to see how a dog (pictured on the left), who was rescued from the worst conditions imaginable, has fully recovered and is enjoying a second chance at life. YES, WE CAN!
We are proud to look back at 2018 where with the help of our donors, our volunteers, our staff and everyone who dedicated their time and effort to helping us help the animals in Costa Rica, we were able to achieve more than we had ever expected. Consultations: 9,179 veterinary consultations Surgeries: 4,658 dogs and cats Sterilizations: 20,981 dogs and cats Vaccinations: 5,894 dogs and cats Adoptions: 3,980 dogs and cats
A few good people can make a BIG difference in the life of some poor animals. This dog was pregnant and was tied to a post without food or water in the hopes that she would die. We received a phone call and were able to go out and rescue this poor dog. After receiving some much needed nutrition and TLC, she blessed us with the birth of her puppies at our Animal Shelter.
This dog was abandoned, tied up, hungry, cold and in a lot of pain….Together with ASCR, POLICE, and YOU who denounced this case, AHPPA was able to rescue him! He has tumors in his mouth and our vets are doing their best to help him!
We are continuing our efforts to help the animals affected by Hurricane Nate. Together, the AHPPA, DR. ALVAREZ, SENASA and HSI went into the hardest hit towns and suburbs. We treated 50 dogs/cats today with neutering, deworming, treating and closing wounds, defleaing along with the adminsitration of vitamin supplements and antibiotics in addition to general veterinary consults. They really needed our help and we were glad to be there for them.
This beautiful Labrador was rescued from a pig farm where he lived abandoned, sick and very sad. After being treated against Ehrlichiosis and getting the necessary blood transfusion, this wonderful animal will fully recover soon and have a second chance at a better life. A big “THANK YOU” to the rescuers and to the veterinarians at AHPPA for saving another life.
