Animal Shelter Wish List

Animal Shelter Clinic Costa Rica

Eunice & Friend Refugio Shelter

If you have any of the items listed on our wish list page that will assist the Refugio you may drop them at the Refugio during shelter hours. Or, we can arrange to either pick them up, if you are within a 25 km radius of the shelter in Costa Rica.

We can also arrange to acquire physical items from the USA by having donations shipped to a trusted source located in Florida who will forward them to us here in Costa Rica.

Please understand that we can only accept new, unused and sealed products. We ask your assistance in getting these items shipped to Florida in the United States by contacting us.

From Costa Rica, please contact Lilian Schnog to arrange for pick-up or delivery.
