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!

Naomi and Abby Chrystal had made survival bracelets over the summer and decided after their trip to Puerto Rico last year that they would like to sell the bracelets to raise money for Save-a-Sato. They did just that and since we were going back to Puerto Rico, they decided to donate the money they raised, in person. They were so excited to visit the shelter and make their much so that they want to continue to raise money for the shelter. Thank you! We are so proud!

Make this year a special one for the Satos at our shelter! and for the ones, that are about to come, in this 2016.
