My name is Chrissy Beckles and I am fighting so these dogs do not have to. And I mean that literally not figuratively. I am a champion Amateur Boxer who fights to make a difference for these pups. I first visited Puerto Rico with my Husband, who is a Stuntman and was filming on the island over eight years ago. We love dogs and were horrified at what we encountered. It is hard to visit a beach without seeing its residents; usually very cute pups who sometimes chew rocks because they are so hungry. It broke our hearts. We are Brits who now live and work in New York. I researched the ‘net and found a couple of rescue groups working in PR and began volunteering and donating to them. We adopted our second ‘fur child’ from a horrific situation in the Arecibo shelter in 2008.
I have been rescuing full time in Puerto Rico since 2009 and launched The Sato Project in November 2011.
