Save A Sato is a non-profit, all volunteer organization dedicated to easing the suffering of Puerto Rico's homeless and abused animals. "Sato" is slang for street dog. We rescue Satos from the streets and beaches, give them medical care, food and shelter, and plenty of love. When they are healthy, we send them to one of our shelter partners for adoption into loving homes. For more information, please read our Mission Statement.

Latest News from the Shelter

 This was an amazing rescue! Meet Bella, this little one was rescued about 4 months ago living in awful conditions beside a hot dog cart. Nobody would even look at her. But God is always watching over the ones in need and all the way from New York, and a past adopter from us, who was visiting the island saw her and it broke his heart...he called us and of course we took her in. Alberto and Jill send medicines and everything she needed to get her back in shape, with the promise that once she was ready she will fly back to NY in search for her new forever home. The day has come and tomorrow little Bella would be traveling to NY to a great and beautiful life.

We want to thank everyone that help us, Alberto and Jill and also Jessica, the wonderful foster home that took her in for all this months, she could have not done it without you. Have a safe trip little one! your new life will begin tomorrow!

Latest Update on Chloe

  Laurie and I wanted to update you on the voyages of Chloe, our adorable Sato who we adopted from the Northeast Animal Shelter, MA six years ago. After enriching our lives in suburban New York she has recently embarked on a new adventure as we have all moved to Hong Kong for several years. After a bit of jetlag she now loves accompanying us on long hikes across the many beautiful trails here and in The New Territories. She has also learned to swim and she is slowly learning to speak to all the Chinese dogs she plays with on the beach. Peter Ling
