Video: A Moving Excerpt from a Film About Stray Dogs in Puerto Rico

Written by: Phil Monahan

Excerpt from ’100,000′: Los Machos Beach and Island Dog from Juan Agustin Marquez on Vimeo.

Here’s a heartbreaking scene from the Emmy-Award-winning documentary 100,000, about stray dogs in Puerto Rico. (From the film’s website: “If you would like to see ’100,000′ with English subtitles, please send an email to We will send you a private link watch the documentary.”) The two women featured here work to rescue strays on a beach where people routinely dump unwanted dogs, and for their heroic efforts, the women are subject to ridicule and scorn. Their commitment to these dogs that no one else wants and their willingness to endure the unfair fallout from their actions are inspiring.
