Update on Agustin! 11/28/2014

 An email sent to us recently

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 a rescue group, 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 pelletes 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 indiga que se ve bien y moviendo su rabito.

Update on Chloe adopted on 2008

From our sato mail!
Laurie and I wanted to update you on the voyages of Chloe, our adorable Sato who we adopted from the Northeast Animal Shelter, MA six years ago. After enriching our lives in suburban New York she has recently embarked on a new adventure as we have all moved to Hong Kong for several years. After a bit of jetlag she now loves accompanying us on long hikes across the many beautiful trails here and in The New Territories. She has also learned to swim and she is slowly learning to speak to all the Chinese dogs she plays with on the beach.

A Happy ending for Valentine! (now Eli)

From our sato mail!

Dear Save a Sato,
I adopted Eli (formerly know as Valentine) 6 months ago at the Northeast Animal Shelter in Salem, MA. It was the day before Mother's Day. And Eli recently had his first birthday. I can't remember a time without him!
Eli is the best dog! He is such a love! (Maybe that's why you named him Valentine!) He is so excited when I get home every day. It makes me feel so good.
Eli spent a lot of time at Humarock Beach this past Summer. We are blessed to have a beach house there. He loves to run on the beach with his dog sister, Sara. And Eli learned how to swim at the end of the Summer, once the water warmed up.
Another favorite activity is the long walks we take in the woods nearby our home. We are looking forward to taking him on backpacking trips in New Hampshire.

A Happy ending for Saba and Ogre!!

From our sato mail!

I adopted Saba from the Northeast Animal Shelter outside of Boston through your program five years ago and have been doating on her ever since. We lived in Colorado for four years where we hiked all over the Rocky Mountains and moved to Bend, Oregon in April this year. In May, my boyfriend and I adopted a second sato through your program, named Obama who we renamed Ogre.
The two of them absolutely adore each other and have become very close.
 We spent weekends this summer backpacking through the Cascades and running on all the trails in the area, it's been so wonderful. Ogre has grown into his own and has become a huge cuddler and generally sleeps between on in the pillows with Saba wrapped up around our legs - we actually had to purchase a bigger bed this summer because we couldn't all fit! I've stayed in contact with Vivian and Jessica through facebook, but I would love to have the opportunity to reach out to Nilsa Ramos and let her know how Saba is doing and that she now has a little brother if possible. If you could connect us that would be amazing. I've attached the paperwork with a photo in case that helps in addition to several photos of the dogs enjoying the woods.

Thank you for the opportunity to adopt two amazing dogs - we adore them.

Lupe's Happy ending!

Beautiful Lupe!
A few months back, we were lucky enough to adopt a little black Chihuahua mix named “CHI CHI” from island Puppy Rescue here in NJ. The dog had originally come from Save a Sato, I believe she was found by police wandering the streets. We have since renamed her Guadeloupe, but we nicknamed her “Lupe”.

I wanted to thank you for helping this amazing little dog, she has added an immense amount of happiness to our household, and our other Chihuahua mixes, DIEGO, SANCHEZ and CARMELITA.
If I sent you some pics, could you put them on your happy endings website page?? She deserves her 15 minutes of fame.
Thank you.

Diego, Sanchez,and Carmelita with OB
Thank You for sharing!! Lupe looks happy with her new friends!! we are so happy that now she have friends to play and a loving family that will take good care of her!!
Sanchez and Lupe napping!

Traveling with a sato is so much fun!!

Our satos are loyal, intelligent, and have the best behavior on the dog community!! This is a short comment from one volunteer that spent some time traveling with a couple of our satos, we just want to share this with you Save A Sato fan , and also we would like to hear, how your dog behave when he is out of the house!! Funny or embarrassing stories are accepted!!

"The puppies were perfect little travelers. They were very calm and quiet on the
airplane (and I think sleepy!) It was so much fun watching them play together in
the fenced in grassy area at the shelter. Great to see how happy these
pups are".

A call for help from Save A Sato

 This is Ricardo, he was rescued this morning by Gloria's son and named after him. He was dying of hunger and dehydration on a parking lot near a store. 
As soon as Gloria arrived to the area, she built a shelter with cardboard  boxes and a umbrella so he can have a little rest from the burning sun and drink some water before taking him to the shelter. 
After he arrived to the shelter, he was fed, but later, he threw out all the food he ate and worms came out of his stomach. 

He is very skinny and sick, he looks like he has been beaten and mistreated during the time he has been on the streets,  we are trying to do everything on our hands to save his life, he will be tested during the day to see if his heart is free of heart-worms, and also taken to the vet. We need your help, only with your donations we can help Ricardo with his treatment, visit our main page if you wish to help by Paypal.
(Gloria is telling Ricardo, not to worry, his life will change for good now at Save A Sato)
