Toronto Star Picture Editor Wanda Goodwin shares these delightful images from a little known animal sanctuary in Costa Rica. The center shelters over 100 orphaned and injured sloths which receive rehabilitation before being returned to the forest, according to Judy Arroyo, a co-owner of the sanctuary.

Such remarkably cute pictures of sloths! So decidedly cute and cuddly. Thanks so much!

soooo cute! i love this place!

That is the cutest place ever. if I had the money to travel to this place and learn and help i totally would!

Photos like these are the reason I don't eat animals, especially mammals.

Great pictures and cute also,thanks for the chance to see this little guy

Oh, just from these pictures i should say you are really an attending feeder. And the animal is very cute

I love these pictures. I love animals that are rescued. They love and seem more happy in life then most animals. I rescued kittens that were thown away at one week old. Now they are three years o;d and full of love. I sometimes think, were would they be had I not picked them out of a trash can. I would not trade them for anything in the world.

Wooow, the animal is so cute.

This is so cute! I liked the sloth on Ice Age and the fact that he carried three Tyrannosaurus Rex eggs and put little faces on them.

they r soooo cute i want one

amazing!! i so wanna join u guys.....

So beautiful animals love it

Back in may I posted a video of baby sloth's from a rescue in Costa Rica. Up until I watched that video, I had never thought much about them. But, they really do have personalities just like other animals. I think they have just gotten a bad rap as lazy & stinky. Maybe if people just took the time to watch them and see their cute faces...we would all think differently when we hear the word sloth.

So cute. In that picture with the lady in the apron he's just looking up like LOVE ME!!!!!

awwwwww

So sweet, see how the one she is holding looks at her, like she/he adores her very being :D

Wow, I never knew they could be so cute.
