Costa Rica is home to Territorio de Zaguates, or “Land of the Strays.” This one-of-a-kind “shelter” is run by volunteers and privately funded in the wide-open, lush landscapes of paradise where dogs roam freely and do as they please!
This unique shelter is open to the public, and all of the dogs are up for adoption. Hiking and interacting with the dogs in such a beautiful place helps with bonding and takes the stress out of the adoption process.
This wide-open “shelter” gives the dogs plenty of exercise and allows adopters to get a true feel for the dogs in a fun, stress-free environment.
In addition to being outside as much as they want, the dogs have access to a modern indoor facility. This is where they can eat, bathe and sleep. Fresh water is available all over the property to keep them hydrated.
Anyone can visit this paradise, and there is no pressure to adopt. It’s a no-kill shelter with extremely happy and healthy dogs doing as they please! 🙂
