About Us

Halfway Home Animal Shelter in Tamarindo, Costa Rica is helping to make a difference.

About us

Animal Rescue, Veterinary Care, Adoptions & Foster Homes

Halfway Home is a grassroots organization whose efforts are to contain the dog population in and around Tamarindo, Costa Rica. There were so many homeless and abused dogs people had brought in to the clinic that overcrowding grew to crisis levels, and something had to change.

I brought him home once I saw Buddy's adorable face. Halfway Home had already handled his required vaccines for entry into the US, making the process easier than expected.

There is no better feeling than knowing you were able to change the life of a dog who didn’t have a home. I never knew adopting could be so easy and affordable. Many thanks to Halfway Home!

We said we wanted a puppy but when we saw Cocoa there was no doubt she was perfect for us. We are so happy to have rescued an older dog. Halfway Home never gave up on her and neither will we!
