Edgardo Zuniga Juarez may very well be the ultimate dog lover. This selfless man is so passionate about saving dogs that people started calling him Edgardo Perros. Perros is Spanish for dogs.
Edgardo has spent the last six years walking thousands of miles along Mexico’s perimeter, saving stray dogs that he meets during his journey. According to the kind dog lover, he has helped rehome 400 to 500 dogs already. And it seems that he has no intentions of stopping.
Around and back
Edgardo hails from a little Mexican town called Bucerias. He has always loved dogs and has dreamt of doing something big for them. So when he got the idea of walking around and do whatever he can to help strays, he set out a plan and made it happen.
His first move was to get a cart where he could put all his essentials. Then, he set out his course. The plan was to walk along the country’s borders until he eventually ends up in his hometown.
Then one day, without any fanfare, he went on his epic journey. Joining him was his own three rescue dogs, Negro, Blanco, and Chilletas.
Edgardo brings along food for the dogs and feeds every stray that he meets along the way. Many of them follow him, and the kind man takes care of them until he can find someone to adopt them.
Sometimes, he meets dogs that are beyond help already. With his meager resources, all he can do is give them comfort until their final moments.
Thankfully, a lot of supporters have helped Edgardo care for these poor dogs. Many have sent him money and supplies so that he can continue his good work.
According to him, once he circles back to his hometown, he has no plans to stop helping dogs. His next move is to go to the big cities where the street dog population is much larger.
Hopefully, Edgardo gets even more support so that he can change more lives.
