Danos un techito, our latest campaign!

Want to join us in continuing  making a difference? We are raising money to benefit Save a Sato Foundation, and any donation will help make an impact to the hundreds Satos we continue helping all year long. Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to us.

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 in the U.S.A

For over two decades we have endured many struggles that come along while doing what we love to do.
Clearly after devastating hurricane Maria like many otherS in the island we have been enduring yet far more than we ever had before. 

Our shelter lost its humble roof and since then our Satos have been sheltered by a roof made out of blue tarps.

In an effort to give them a more secure place to live until they are adopted we have been working very hard trying to find them a safe place to be.
Not forgetting that  we are just entering  another uncertained hurricane season.

After many calls, meetings and due diligence we are excited to announced that Save A Sato has been presented with the possible opportunity to move to another location.

The promising new shelter is,  a school in disuse in the nearby vicinity of our current shelter.

The process to make all this possible requires a timely and meticulous  process.

This much needed huge undertaking will require  a long list of things taken care of such as;  legal advise and  documentation, certificates, insurance policies, structure edification, plumbing & electrical work, cages built, restrooms, paint, cleaning and the list goes on.

To reach this goal we NEED YOUR HELP! 
We are asking you to please DONATE!... together we can give our SATOS the roof and shelter the deserve.
In kind donations from any profesional that may be able to provide a service are also welcomed.

One of our sato has been adopted!!

 just wanted to say thank you, we’ve had our puppy for a couple weeks now and love him so much.  He is a lab mix that left your shelter in Feb/March to come to Paws in Albion NY. 
We have renamed him Bowie and he’s doing great in his new home.  It’s amazing the work you do for these animals.  I attached some photos of happy healthy Bowie that I thought you would enjoy seeing.

Chico will be missed...

After 16 wonderful years, I put my fur baby, Chico, to rest. He was rescued by your organization and brought to the Northeast Animal Shelter in Salem, MA where we found him. Thank you for all that you do... for the animals and the families that love them. God bless

From our sato email!

Theodore Martin

Adopted May 4th in Broward County Florida.  He is a cutie pie.  God bless you all ♥️

Riggs a.k.a Fernando will be missed...

14 years ago I had the great fortune of adopting Rigatoni “Fernando” aka Riggs from Sterling Animal Shelter. My little bear cub was saved off the beaches of Puerto Rico by Gloria and her pals in March 2004. He was 8 or 10 weeks old when I adopted him - my sweet boy with the blue tongue and most beautiful brown eyes. Riggs lived a full and healthy life as my constant sidekick - walks every day, a huge yard for digging his bunkers to hide in, a sister dog who drove him nuts but he loved her anyway, and four cats who he begrudgingly enjoyed.
He was handsome as could be and always loved grooming day. He was a great swimmer, fantastic smoocher, and the love of my life. Sadly I had to say goodbye to him yesterday. Old age got the best of him. I will always be grateful to Gloria and those amazing volunteers in Puerto Rico for saving him and sending him to Sterling. Much love and gratitude.

Nena will be missed.....

Thank you so very much for our beautiful Nena.  We adopted Nena in 2003 from PAWS in Bethel, CT and she was my wedding present from my husband to be! She started our family and she was my constant companion, helping to raise our son & daughter.  Sadly our girl passed in late August 2018 and she is greatly missed each day.  Thank you for all that you do & for saving our precious girl so she could love us every day she was with us.

Kindest Regards,
Clare Ramery

Blanco! otra historia de final feliz!

Hace un mes y medio adoptamos a Blanco a través del Humane Society of Broward County. 
Cuando llegó a nuestra casa era un perro muy asustadizo y nervioso. 
Hoy, un mes y medio después de haberle abierto nuestro corazón a este rayito de luz, estamos más que felices de haber tomado esta decisión. 
Es el perro más dulce, inteligente y juguetón que he conocido. 
No podemos estar más contentos de haberlo hecho parte de nuestra familia. Es el bebe de la casa. Gracias por haberlo rescatado, porque sin la oportunidad que ustedes le dieron, no tendríamos a esta alegría en la familia. 

Rambo, living happy!

    Hello my name is Kristi Cox, my husband Steve and I adopted Rambo now Maximilian. He is one happy boy. He lives in the air conditioning with his new Boston terrier, lab, and a collie mix siblings. He loves to chase the cat.
A dinosaur nylabone is his favorite toy. He is learning that a bed is a good place to sleep, and couches are fun to lay on. He is an amazing little man who we love so much. He also loves getting frosted puppy cookies! I have attached some pictures for you. Thank you for saving this sweet boy, and all the others who need you.
