Dignity and care for every dog
When Stephen McGarva and his wife moved to Puerto Rico, they hoped to find inspiration and adventure, and a break from the ordinary routine that their lives in the States had become. McGarva, an artist and adventure sportsman, was excited to pursue the boundary-pushing, adrenaline-rush activities he loved--hang gliding, scuba diving, kite surfing. One day he visited Playa Lucia, a postcard-perfect beach with shimmering white sand, palm trees, and dazzling blue water. There, instead of relaxation and fun, he found a sick and abandoned dog. This dog, and the quest to save him, transformed McGarva and gave him a new purpose in Puerto Rico. He soon learned that this slice of paradise was known to locals as Dead Dog Beach--a notorious dumping ground for the island's unwanted canines, and Stephen McGarva knew he had to act.
In The Rescue at Dead Dog Beach, Stephen McGarva shares the story of his time in Puerto Rico working to help the satos, or unwanted dogs, of the island. Often considered a threat to the area's lucrative tourism industry, these defenseless animals were in constant danger of brutality and death. Enraged, and refusing to accept such cruelty, McGarva began protecting these helpless animals in any way he could, soon discovering that there were many people working to do the same--but just as many, if not more, determined to stop him. In the process, McGarva's friendships, marriage, personal safety, and even sanity were in jeopardy.
McGarva spent but two years on Dead Dog Beach, and in the process saved hundreds of dogs. A call to arms for animal lovers everywhere, and full of insights and practical information to help strays anywhere in the world, The Rescue at Dead Dog Beach is as powerful as it is heartbreaking.
