The Strays of Malinalco

Photographs by Zixian Chen

Stray dogs are a ubiquitous presence in the small touristed town of Malinalco, promoted by the Mexican government as a “magical town.” Some local residents have launched a campaign to better care for the health and well-being of these homeless animals. Photographer, Zixian Chen, sought out the strays of Malinalco finding food and taking shelter where they can.
