Nosara Animal Care (NAC) is a Costa Rican based, nonprofit, animal welfare organization located in Nosara, Costa Rica. Nosara is a rural, relatively isolated Tico village on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica's Nicoya, Guanacaste region. NAC's mission is to provide quality health care for Nosara’s most vulnerable animals. We rehabilitate homeless, injured, and sick animals and find them loving homes. We work with the community through educational programs to promote animal health. We have a low-cost spay/neuter program to reduce the numbers of unwanted animals, and we offer low-cost veterinary care for at-risk animals living in low-income homes. Our goal is to eliminate animal suffering and promote animal compassion.

We have a NO-KILL policy. Our rescue/rehab program takes all at-risk animals, restores them to health, and houses them until they are adopted. We do not euthanize unless an animal is suffering with very little chance of recovery. Ours is a costly, labor-intensive effort, and we rely on grants, donations, and volunteers to stay operational.
