If Costa Rica wasn’t in your bucket list of places to visit, it should be now.

 

若以前哥斯大黎加不在你一生必遊的清單中,那麼現在應該列入。

 

Territorio de Zaguates or "Land of the Strays," located in the mountains of Santa Bárbara in Costa Rica’s Heredia province, is a dog sanctuary to more than 900 dogs.

 

位於哥國埃雷迪亞省聖塔芭芭拉山的「浪浪之地」,是安置900多隻狗狗的狗兒庇護所。

 

The privately funded and volunteer-run organization is a "No-Kill" shelter that has been standing for 8 years, thanks to founders Lya Battle and Alvaro Saumet. They dedicated the land to the "well-being and respect of the animals," which also includes cats, according to the official Facebook website.

 

由於創辦人芭托與邵梅特的堅持,這個由私人出資、義工經營的組織,是運作了8年的「零安樂死」收容所。他們將這塊園地奉獻於「動物的福祉與尊重」上,這些動物也包括貓咪,其官方臉書網站指出。

 

According to the website, they sterilize all incoming dogs, just like any other shelter. Territorio de Zaguates has enclosed facilities for the dogs as well, approximately 1,000 square meters, but the dogs get to freely roam around the hills with companions, volunteers and visitors who stop by. Walking with the dogs is free of charge, but its encouraged for visitors to schedule their visit ahead of time.

 

根據該網站,就像其他收容所一樣,他們將所有收容的狗狗結紮。「浪浪之地」也有可供狗狗活動的專屬場地,該區約有1000平方公尺大,狗兒可以與同伴、義工以及路過的訪客一起在山丘上漫步。遛狗是免費的,但希望訪客來訪前事先預約。
