Since 1992 Profelis has taken care of confiscated felines that were injured, abandoned or otherwise unable to survive in the wild. The center welcomes volunteers, especially veterinary students, biologists and experienced animal keepers.

Profelis is headquartered at Hacienda Matambú, a private wildlife reserve in San Rafael de Paquera, about 5km west of Paquera.

The project concentrates on smaller felines, including the margay, ocelot and jaguarundi, with the goal of rehabilitating the animals and reintroducing them into the wild.
