The Las Pumas (cat) Rescue Center is located in an old farm land called Hacienda La Pacifica, in the heart of Area de Conservación Guanacaste World Heritage Site. Most animals are brought to the Rescue Center by government officials, rescued from human interaction. After rehabilitation, many species are reintroduced to the wild with approval of veterinary care.
