A few months ago, I was driving out of the small Mexican town of Mazunte, Oaxaca, when I saw a peculiar sight on the side of the road. A man was pushing a trolley along the road surrounded by dogs. Dogs were on top of his trolley. Dogs were behind him, in front of him and by his side. Tails were wagging furiously, barks were sounding and he just kept pushing his trolley through the heat.

This is the story of Edgardo Perros. He has walked 14,000 km around the perimeter of Mexico saving injured and sick dogs! Over the last six years, he has saved nearly 500 dogs. His humility and compassion for all beings were so striking that it touched me. For example, when he finds a dog that is too injured to be saved, he lies down with it on the road so it has company as it passes on.

His selfless attitude and service to these animals and the people he meets are so inspirational. Check out his Facebook page.

“I think that what someone in this situation needs, no matter if a person or animal, is some company and even a little bit of love”

Over the past six years, he has rescued and successfully homed close to 500 sick and injured dogs

He has found many dogs that were too damaged to be rescued. “Usually, I just keep them company, until in a natural way, they rest,” said Edgardo
