Space is limited so to ensure resources are available for animals we learn of and can’t take in, partnering with other organizations is critical. It truly takes a village!
In 2016, the nonprofit organization World Animal Protection released a survey on responsible ownership. The study showed that Costa Rican’s generally have deep affection for their pets, but can be better owners. For example, a dog’s dental health, and even desire for exercise and distraction, is often overlooked. While most owners say they mainly keep their dog in the house or in the backyard, 15% will tie them up all day. Enclosing or tying up a dog is one of the most harmful things you can do. A dog needs exercise and stimulation to maintain its health, just like humans.
