In Costa Rica, there is a dog rescue. Tourist come to walk a rigorous 1 mile walk up a mountain. So you better be fit if you want to visit. Those who opt out of the walk visit with the puppies, recuperating dogs and dogs that may run off.
For dogs this is certainly paradise. For dog lovers, it is an answer to their wishes for stray dogs. Each dog is named and given a breed to encourage their self esteem. Being loved is a dog's desire. Pictures show very happy dogs.
