Traer Scott is a Rhode Island-based photographer who has traveled throughout Puerto Rico and Mexico in order to capture the plight of stray dogs on camera.
“In making Street Dogs, I traveled extensively with animal rescuers throughout urban and rural areas of both countries in an attempt to document the many facets of animal abandonment and abuse as well along with the efforts being made to bring about change,” she writes on her website.
The result was a photo series of dogs, begging, frolicking, struggling, and surviving. Check out these images from her collection called Street Dogs, which we borrowed, with permission, from her website.
