  • Millie the Sloth’s Fundraiser

    As implied by their name, TRR was initially established as a rescue center for toucans and other birds. But the second Millie arrived, rescuers knew: Their mission was evolving. Since opening their doors in 2004, the need for help has only become more prevalent amongst several of Costa Rica’s native species, with an alarming rise in the number of abused and injured sloths.

Both babies were found as orphans, roughly around the same age. Spud, spotted on the ground near the westside of the capital of Costa Rica, San Jose; Tater, discovered at the base of a tree.

    Kisses is a small baby Tayra (part of the weasel family), who arrived at the Ranch scared, hurting, and stressed, after being attacked by a dog. Luckily, the dog’s owners heard the attack and rushed outside to step in. And thank goodness they did – because their quick thinking is what saved Kisses’ life.
