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.

Gizmo, formerly known as Cano!
Hello! This is Cris Baumgart. I meant to send pics last year when I first adopted Gizmo (formerly known as Cano.) I rescued him from Broward Humane Society when he was brought over to escape Tropical Storm Erika in 2015. He is doing amazing and loves his brother Zeus, a 140 lb. Dogo Argentino and Domino, a 30 lb. Beagle/Pointer. From what I was told, he was rescued out of a washing machine with his mother and siblings. From last year to this year, he is a completely different dog. He is so active, and his shyness is almost completely gone. The only thing he gets scared of is looking at someone with a towel wrapped around their head when they get out of the shower! He will soon start agility training since he has endless amounts of energy and is faster than any other dog at the dog park.
He sleeps on the bed with me, Zeus, and my husband. He has to sleep under the covers and curled up next to my chest or stomach and between me and Zeus. It's a huge comfort for him. When I first adopted him, I had only thought I was saving a sweet, scared baby. Little did I know he would rescue me. Keeping up with him at first was a huge challenge. I have Lupus and Fibromyalgia and suffered with severe back pain and used a mobility scooter to get around for longer walks. He has pushed me to become healthier. Today, I very rarely use my scooter. I am able to walk (and even sometimes run) with very limited pain. He has completely changed my life. I now go out more and am more social with friends and family. Thank you for entrusting the Broward Humane Society for help with rescues.
I am more grateful than words could ever express for sending me the angel and miracle I had prayed for over 5 years. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
