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 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!

Thank you Orlando and Olga!

Saludos, we were pleased to finally meet Gloria and staff at SAS during our visit to the shelter, to deliver the $331 donation from the people of Puerto Rico given during the 2015 Fiesta de la Calle San Sebastián.  We are very proud of Maya and Toby for their dedication to helping their Sato family.  Thank you all for your work too.  You may post these photos on your Facebook to thank everyone for their support.
Best regards,
Orlando and Olga Ruiz-Roque
