Dog sanctuary is heaven on earth where thousands of dogs run free

13 years ago the owners of Territorio de Zaguates in Costa Rica decided to help stray dogs making their life easier and better.

Lya Battle and Alvaro Saumet opened a no-kill dog sanctuary that was truly heaven on earth for dogs.

Costa Rica had 2 million stray dogs who didn’t deserve street life. Gradually Lya and Alvaro brought more and more dogs and kept them all in a small backyard.

Soon it was impossible for all of them and Lya tried to find a proper place for all of them. Se decided to move to her grandparent’s territory which was 378 acres. As her grandparents also loved animals she thought that building a sanctuary there will be an honoring job.
