Meet Chrissy Beckles, Boxer and Animal Rescuer

Why Should You Care

What would you do to save an animal from suffering? On Puerto Rico’s “Dead Dog Beach,” Chrissy Beckles discovered thousands of abandoned and abused dogs—and was inspired to lace on her boxing gloves and devote her life to fighting for them.

This film from director Bryce Dallas Howard follows Chrissy to the Yabucoa province where she rescues the satos (the local term for stray dogs) and brings them back to their forever homes in the United States. And we see her at her charity boxing match in Brooklyn, where she fights for the funds and awareness she needs to ensure that The Sato Project continues to offer new lives to these forgotten animals.
