The Land of A Thousand Stray Dogs Is The Perfect Place For The Dog Lovers

Land of the stray dogs? More like, “Land of the Good Boys/Girls!”

For the dog lovers out there, have you ever wondered how it would feel to be surrounded by hundreds of man’s best friend? Would you ever believe if someone tells you that there’s a land filled to the brim with a thousand stray dogs?

Somewhere in Costa Rica, there is a place called Territorio de Zaguates. This place is a rescue facility, and it is a no-kill dog shelter that currently harbors roughly around 970 stray dogs.

The place is located an hour drive from downtown San Jose.

The shelter is able to harbor the astounding number of dogs because of its size. Famed for its 378 acres of tropical mountain land, the shelter is the perfect haven for the poor stray dogs looking for a helping hand and a place to live in.

The great news is that aside from the caretakers, there are also frequent volunteers making sure that the stray dogs are getting the right amount of attention they deserve. Dan Giannopoulos, a British photographer and a self-proclaimed dog lover currently living in Nicaragua, explained:

To look out and see hundreds of dogs running across the field was completely breathtaking to me. I’ve never seen anything like it.

According to Giannopoulos, the dogs were all friendly and well-behaved. He even shared one of his experiences where a Labrador with a paralyzed leg followed him around for a whole day while he took some pictures. During his departure, the adorable lab followed him all the way to the gate, seemingly saying goodbye as he finally got into the taxi.

So, if you’re a certified dog lover, this place should be included in your bucket list.
