Save A Sato is a non-profit 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.

I think it is about time Save a Sato had it's own blog! Here I will keep you up to date on what is happening at the shelter in San Juan, highlight the stories of our wonderful rescues and introduce you to the wonderful dogs and volunteers of SAS.
This is Paco, a new pup rescued by Gloria.
Gloria spotted Paco sleeping under a car and stopped to pick him up, he is now resting comfortably at the SAS shelter waiting for his forever home. Here are the photos of his rescue -

Paco is one of an estimated 200,000 stray dogs on the streets of Puerto Rico. He is lucky that someone stopped to rescue him, many others are not as lucky.
