Money does make happy endings possible. No one wants a sick animal so Vet care is required to rescue. Donations are easy, just click and help or use our buttons below.  If you’d like to send a check made out to Defensa or donate items** you can USPS them to Defensa Animal de Rincon – HC1 Buzon 4749 – Rincon, PR 00677.   If you can afford as little as $5 a month please consider joining our Sponsor Club with monthly payments of your choice – cancel anytime, through your paypal account.

Sometimes the best home is not locally in Puerto Rico so airline travel may be required.   However, you can be certain that when you make a donation 100% goes to helping animals rescued from the streets of Puerto Rico.  We do not pay rent, employees or staff.   We post our financial numbers monthly at Defensa Our Numbers.

We are a registered 501c3 (our EIN 660811657 for your tax records).   Read more about us and what others have written about us on our About Defensa page.
