I adopted my little dog Moby from a shelter in Gloucester, MA about 17 years ago. He was flown into Logan by this wonderful charity and proved to be the most heartwarming companion for almost 14 years, and loved by everyone who had a chance to know him.
I can't commend them enough for the tireless work they do to try to give abandoned animals a chance, I will adopt again from this organization when I no longer have to work full time. in them meantime, donate, send needed items, what ever you can do to help - they deserve it!!!

There was a dog with puppies that needed rescue. I convinced the homeless man to give me the dog with the puppies. I didn’t have a place for them and Save a Sato helped and picked up mom and the babies. Thank you Gloria.

Save a Sato has always been the light and hope for abandoned animales in PR. They make miracles with so little. They all put their hearts and souls in every and each one of the cases they recieve. Always giving the extra mile for animals in need. Regardles of what species they are. These people are not humans, they are angels. Support their mission and their cause.

Save a Sato rescues the street dogs of Puerto Rico and partners with other rescues in the United States to find homes for the tens of thousands of street dogs roaming the city. I adopted my mixed dog through a partnership between Save a Sato and As Good As Gold (golden retriever rescue of northern Illinois).

It has been a wonderful and supportive experience.
