Rico hopes that if people see how personable and sweet the dogs at the shelter are, they can start changing how they're thinking about rescue dogs. "With education, great things can be done," Rico said.
Until that time comes, these dogs can take pleasure in the little things, like walks on the beach. Rico also hopes that foreigners will also take an interest in adopting the street dogs from a distance, which is something ADAN has done in the past. Hopefully soon some of these dogs will know the biggest pleasure of all — having a home.
