Costa Rica News – Imagine a relaxing walk through the mountains and rainforests of Costa Rica, hearing the chirping birds, the buzzing insects—and the happy yips of hundreds of dogs trailing behind you.

Territorio De Zaguates is a no-kill shelter, homing stray or abandoned dogs from all over Costa Rica. The shelter itself was founded in 2005 in the home of Lya Battle and Alvaro Samut outside San Jose.
