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
During a Police intervention, the owner of this dog was arrested, without a possibility, to be out. A volunteer was called to take Marcus away, because the police did not wanted to give him to the local dog pound, to end up euthanized. Save A Sato is now taking care of Marcus, and after a vet visit, a bullet was found on his neck! Some neighbors told us that the owner shot him! Marcus is going to surgery now, we need help to pay for his operation. Visit our main page www.saveasato.org if you would like to help us!
Save A Sato would like to thanks and recognize, Mr Rafael Rivera Marti (Municipal police sergeant) officer Gonzalez #1446 and officer Gonzalez #1511 from the municipal police of Montehiedra for the rescue of Rafaela! (Named after the sergeant) She is right now spending the night at the S.A.S shelter and tomorrow she will be visiting a vet for evaluation, she was found anemic, and bleeding through her skin. At the time of the rescue, she was wearing a collar, meaning this, that once she had an owner, and was abandoned, maybe for her sickness. Thanks to this 3 officers for this rescue. Rafaela now, wont die on the streets
