In Puerto Rico, a US Common Wealth the size of Connecticut, there are 250,000 stray dogs romaing the streets. Stray dogs are called "Satos" by the locals and often severely neglected or abused. On the South-East coast of the island, a beach is known as a horrific dumping ground: Dead Dog Beach. On that beach, dogs are dumped on a daily basis and would suffer terrible abuse and death if it weren't for Chrissy Beckles and her non-profit group The Sato Project. With her volunteers, she makes sure dogs are fed every day and as soon as her resources allow it, she pulls them off the beach, vet them and fly them to the US where they are adopted.
