This Wonderful Shelter Lets Over 900 Homeless Dogs Wander Freely On Rolling Hills


Usually when we hear the word shelter, we imagine a place where there are kennels where dogs are kept. Most shelters would also have a play area where dogs can play and run around. But this shelter in Costa Rica is totally different. This place is like a wonderland for homeless dogs!

Welcome to the Territorio De Zaguates, also known as the Land of Strays–a no-kill shelter where over 900 homeless dogs can run and wander free on beautiful green hills.

Watch the video below and learn more about this beautiful and heavenly place!
