Help Save The Dogs of Cancun, Mexico: Part 2, The Street Dogs


Photographing the street dogswas the hardest part of this experience; it had a profound effect on me.  It was incredibly heartbreaking and devastating to see these dogs suffering so severely on the streets.  There is little to no regard for these animals.   The level of cruelty it nothing like we see here, it’s much, much worse.  “The truth is that local governments usually have limited funds to contribute to a humane solution.  Instead, their response is often to round up stray animals and destroy them by electrocution, drowning, or worse. This inhumane “fix” not only fails to solve the underlying problem, but also results in negative publicity and lingering stigma” ( CANDi International ).

There are a limited amount of rescue groups and volunteers who work to save these dogs.  These rescue groups need our help to save these dogs.

I cried more tears than you can imagine after photographing these animals.  But tears and feeling sorry for the dogs does not create change, action does.    I took action to help save these dogs.  Now I am asking you to take action andmake a donation to help these street dogs.  Your donations give these dogs an opportunity to get off the streets, sterilized, and into loving homes.
