Symbolic Classic Adoption: Oncilla


The Toucan Rescue Ranch is one of the only centers in Costa Rica to have an oncilla. Major reasons for its rescue is due to deforestation, fur trade, poaching, and the illegal pet trade.


By symbolically adopting the Oncilla you will be directly helping with the species’ ongoing food and care. With your donation, you will receive an ADOPTION CERTIFICATE and thank you email with your tax-deductible information. The Classic Adoption pays for your adopted species costs for roughly 3-months!

We do not physically sell or adopt out any of the rescued wildlife in Toucan Rescue Ranch’s care. Our Adoption Program is purely symbolic and a unique way for supporters to donate to our mission and their favorite animal.
In Costa Rica, it is illegal to sell or own any native fauna. As a licensed rescue center, it is our duty to uphold the law and what it stands for. As well as being illegal in the country of Costa Rica, it is a core part of TRR’s mission to protect wildlife from the illegal pet trade – as this is something we combat every day. ADOPTION DONATIONS ARE NONREFUNDABLE.
