Who We Are

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. You can find more info at or in our blog

Something everyone can do is share the story of the satos - tell your friends and family about all of the wonderful satos waiting for their forever homes and direct them to our website to learn more! go to or visit our blog We need volunteers in Puerto Rico and on the mainland. More information on the many volunteer opportunities can be found on our Volunteer page .
