Note: When this video was taking there were over 700 dogs. At the moment of writing there are over 900!
Territorio de Zaguates is a “No-Kill Shelter,” a doglike sanctuary where they do not believe in euthanasia as a solution to the problem of abandoned dogs in Costa Rica.
Their mission is to find a home for all dogs that are in their care. They are a temporary home for hundreds of dogs looking for a second chance, and they are also the permanent home of many others who may never find their own family.
Territorio de Zaguates is a nonprofit organization founded by Lya Battle and Alvaro Saumet, who for 8 years have dedicated themselves to promote animal welfare and respect for animals.
1. Rescue and improve the quality of life of stray dogs.
2. To promote the adoption of animals rescued by the organization.
3. Reduce the number of stray dogs by neutering and creating awareness about caring and responsible ownership of pets.
