The life of an animal rescuer is never simple — and that's what Tania Cappelluti learned yet again earlier this month when she arrived back in her hometown of Berlin, Germany.
Cappelluti has been living in Costa Rica for the last several years. She moved there to start a yoga retreat. Then, after seeing how many stray dogs and cats there were wandering the streets in need, she teamed up with some locals and started something else, as well: Charlie's Angels Animal Rescue Costa Rica (CAARCR).
Since then, she's helped dozens of animals with nowhere to go find loving homes. And so, when she arrived in Berlin earlier this month, helping animals didn't stop just because she was several thousand miles away.
"This is so unbelievable," she wrote on Facebook on August 16, posting a photo of an obviously pregnant dog leaning against the facade of a blue house. "I really don’t understand how people can do this to their dog."
