“A good idea still waiting for more volunteers”
Review of Centro de Rescate Guayabillas - CLOSED

Centro de Rescate Guayabillas
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Located within city perimeter, this animal treatment center has a huge reason for being - to rescue, protect and treat animals at risk. However, the apparent difficulty in raising funding and volunteers make it less attractive to the visitors center.

My boyfriend and I volunteered at the Rescue Center for a couple of weeks spring 2011. As far as I understood, there was/is not much help to get from the Government and there are very few funds supporting Animal Rescue in Eduador even though the need for it is huge. But there is absolutely no doubt that the families behind the center LOVES the animals and spend all there time on improving the center and the conditions. We stayed with Oscar and his amazing familiy and we where impressed by the effort these people put into this Center. It is not an ostentatious Center and there is a lot of work to be done, but they DO whatever they can with the money they get. We thought is was an amazing experience and we would without a doubt volunteer there again. They need all the help they can get and thank god for loving and helpfull people like Oscar and the other employees!

I had tears welling up in my eyes at the sight of a pair of lions in a concrete pit about the size of an Olympic size swimming pool; there was a sad looking condor in a cage no taller than 12 feet; a couple of wildcats in a pitifully small enclosure... How dare they call this a Rescue Center -- it's more like a prison.
