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 Chloe

  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. Peter Ling

Latest News from the Shelter

"It has been exactly a year since Argos (sato formerly known as Tuki) came from San Juan and started a new life. He went from being a caged dog to a well-loved boy. Don't get me wrong, he was loved for by Gloria and all the volunteers at Save a Sato but there are so many homeless and helpless animals in Puerto Rico and there are not enough great people like Gloria and the volunteers, such as Penelope, to give the love that an animal needs and deserves. Ironically, today I am returning from San Juan with his grandma and I look forward to seeing him.

If you have room in your home, please adopt a pet from a shelter. Save a Sato has wonderful dogs and cats that need a furever home. Since it is the time of giving, please donate whatever you can to Save a Sato or to your favorite rescue.
Thank you".

Thank you Paul and Glenn for giving this sweet boy an amazing life!

Make this year a special one for the Satos at our shelter! and for the ones, that are about to come, in this 2016.
