Cappelluti originally moved to Costa Rica from Berlin, Germany, to start a yoga retreat. But when she saw how many dogs and cats needed help there, she decided to do something about it.
Ever since early 2015, she and her network of animal rescuers have been helping animals like Fiona find the homes they deserve. "Some of the animals on the street run around, they have old collars around their necks and are just in terrible condition," Cappelluti said. "Sometimes when people have babies, they sort of just let their pets go."
