Picture this: You’re on a grassy hillside in Central America, cloaked by the soft warmth of the sun, surrounded by hundreds of dogs who want nothing more than to lick your face. That’s the dream, right? Well, guess what — for just the price of a plane ticket to Costa Rica, all your dreams can come true.
Territorio de Zaguates (‘Land of the Strays’) in the middle of Costa Rica is home to more than 750 stray dogs who have been saved from the streets. Funded totally by donations, the massive sanctuary serves as a place for these dogs to roam safely and freely while being provided with food, medical care and love.
