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 Update on Agustin

Gus our new pup. They did have to amputate his leg.  Not only was it completely separated at the knee, the bone was broken and infected from bebe pellets.  Once the bone is infected there's not much they can do.  Then they found his right hip is dislocated.  So another procedure to go through! Poor guy. But notice the tail never stops wagging!!

For those who don't know, he was found in the streets of Puerto Rico by the rescue group Save A Sato, where he'd been abused and shot with bebes.  I felt he deserved an awesome home and I know that's exactly what we'll give him!! He was flown to the U.S. last week and is with a rescue group just outside of Philadelphia until he's well enough to come to Clarence.

Agustin fue operado en los Estados Unidos, lamentablemente perdio su pata, encrontraron bolines, en sus huesos, o sea que mientras estaba en las calles de nuestro pais, alguien le disparo con una pistola de pellets lo que causa que sus huesos se infectaran, tambien su cadera esta dislocada, y por esto pasara por otro proceso. Aunque perdio su patita su nuevo amo, nos indica que se ve bien y moviendo su rabito.

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 if you would like to help us!
