'Land of the Strays' is home to 900 dogs and you can visit and adopt them

There's a place in Costa Rica that's home to hundreds of stray dogs who are all available for adoption. It's called Land of the Strays.

The Land of the Strays, or Territorio de Zaguates, is a privately funded, volunteer-run organization in Costa Rica that takes care of 900 dogs.

The pups are fed, bathed, and taken on scenic walking tours for exercise. It's a completely open space, so the dogs spend their days freely roaming around the property. There are indoor areas for sleeping, bathing, and eating.

Technically it's a paradise for dogs, which it is - but it is also 1000 percent a paradise for humans, too.
