While most of us are so indifferent when it comes to help innocent animals, some are capable to do impossible things for the seeks of the four-legged ones. It’s the case of Edgardo Perros, a humble man from Mexico, and his huge heart.
In 2013, the kind-hearted man started his mission, born out of his compassion, empathy and kindness for the stray dogs. Back then, Edgardo decided to help out the homeless dogs all over the country. So he took a trolley and begin his 9,500 miles journey around Mexico.
“It is never too late for us to do something good, no matter what mistakes we have made in the past,” Edgardo told Quinta Fuerza. “Even if there is no food or medicine, I try to rehabilitate them with love and affection and put them up for adoption.”
So far, Edgardo “Perros” Zuniga has managed to help around 500 dogs and he’s only 900 miles away from achieving his goal. Over the last six years, this man walked more than 8,500 miles pushing a trolley full of food and medicines for dogs. He admits sometimes he took some daily jobs to feed himself and his furry friends, but he said he also relied on the kindness of people he met.
The 49-year-old says he begin this journey “to awaken people’s consciousness.” According to him, it’s not the dog’s fault they live on the streets, but their owners’.
“What hurts me the most, is not the battered, hurt…dogs. It is the person that is doing it,” Edgar said. “I work with the strength of the animal, what I do, I do out of love for them, not out of pity. Dogs don’t care if it’s raining, if we are crossing a desert or if they’re hungry, they will always be by my side.”
“Dogs are full of love and protection, that’s why it’s important that we take care of them as well!” Edgar told Bored Panda. “I can’t live the rest of my life just saying ‘I traveled once around Mexico and helped dogs.’ I want to continue to work with dogs.”
That’s what real-life heroes do
