 Save A Sato shelter after hurricane Maria

On september 20 of 2017, Puerto Rico was hit by hurricane Maria, the worst and strongest hurricane ever in the history of our island, 1 day before the hurricane, when all the island was alerted that we were going to receive a direct impact of the hurricane, Gloria and some volunteers managed to find a safe house made of concrete, near the shelter, to keep safe all of the satos and gatos from Save A Sato.

Over 200 satos were safely moved in cages to this house, were they spent 24 hours hearing howling winds and hearing the sounds of devastation that this hurricane left on its path. All of the satos ended up safe and sound and no one of them suffered from any injury.

Unfortunately the shelter physical structure was badly damaged.  It lost the ceiling, made of wood and zinc, it got flooded, and the fridge for the meds and everything inside got damaged. Most of the cages suffered damages and the play area got completely destroyed. We had trees fallen over the structure, and lots and lots of mud and debris. We lost all of our cleaning supplies and the food, collars, beds and medical supplies got lost, wet destroyed.

 

Day by day Gloria and volunteers began the cleaning process and thanks to our social media awareness, people from all over the states, came to the shelter to help us!! (we are so thankful for that)

A lot of people sent donations by Paypal and mail, even big organizations like PetsMart Charities, The Humane Society, FEMA, different shelters from the U.S.A and other Federal Agencies came to PR to help us and other organizations.

We are grateful for all the help, especially for all the people, civil people, who made, Gofundme campaigns, and special events for us while we where unaware of the outside world because of the lack of communications/internet and donated and sent items by mail, and letters to let us know that they were thinking about us! and we keep receiving help, because we have not recovered yet after 5 months! we are grateful that you have not forget about the satos.

Some parts of Puerto Rico, still looks like the hurricane was yesterday, a lot of people now still does not have electricity, water, homes!!!! homes!! can you believe it? for the first time we have families living on tents on the street and beaches around the island!

Save A Sato is still working 24/7 to save lives around the island, at the same time fixing the shelter and looking for a way to keep these from happening again to the shelter! We hope to keep doing everything in our hands to save all the satos from Puerto Rico, so don't loose faith on us and keep following us on our social media web pages, to be updated about everything that is happening on the shelter.
