All Sato Rescue (ASR) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives, and reducing the numbers, of abandoned dogs in Puerto Rico. (Sato is Puerto Rican slang for a mutt.) We rescue and rehome Satos, and we also strive to address the root causes of overpopulation, abuse, and neglect through initiatives aimed at raising public awareness, facilitating low-cost spay and neuter, and expanding the involvement of the judiciary and government in implementing humane solutions.
Every cent of every dollar donated goes directly into helping Satos!

Welcome to All Sato Rescue
The transformation has begun!
We found Rodin wandering the streets so we picked him up and gave him a ride to his new foster home. This sweet boy with his shaggy hair then got all cleaned up. It's amazing what a grooming and a lot of TLC will do for a dog.
A story of resilience!
Back in April, one of our rescuers found these two puppies wandering the streets of Rio Piedras. We named them Bastien and Bastienne. Our rescuer became their foster mom for the past 3+ months. She poured her heart and soul into caring for them, and as you can see, her efforts paid off in a big way!!! Their skin is all better and their coats have grown back. Today was the last leg of their journey as they flew to Sterling Animal Shelter!! We cannot wait to hear when they get adopted...we eagerly await the good news!
Animals are not trash, but unfortunately, not everyone feels the same way. One of our rescuers saved this puppy from a trash can near a hospital in Santurce when she was just days old. We've named her Cameo! That was a few weeks ago and look at her now!!! This beautiful puppy is doing really well and is getting all the love she deserves!
Another big day for Satos!
There's never a slow day at All Sato Rescue and this past Friday was a particularly busy one! We were up, as we often are, before the sun was. We had multiple transports sending 21 Satos to shelters in the northeast. We flew 6 puppies to Cape Ann Animal Aid, 4 golden mixes to DVGRR Delaware Valley Golden Retriever Rescue, and 11 puppies to Sterling Animal Shelter! We are so grateful for our shelter partners and those who adopt for giving these pups a second chance!
Welcome to All Sato Rescue, Tatiana!!
One of our volunteers just rescued this little puppy from underneath the expressway in Rio Piedras. She was all by herself and was about to enter the road when we got her. Now she's getting the royal treatment getting a bath, tasty puppy food, and the chance to live in a foster home! We will give her so much love until she's ready to fly to one of our shelter partners!
Lucco has found his forever home!
He now goes by the name, Bubba, after being adopted from Buddy Dog Humane Society, Inc. His adopter writes, We are so in love with him and we can't wait to spoil him rotten. Thank you for rescuing him and his family. I can't imagine my life without him.
Help pass a new law to help Satos
There is an incredibly important bill being proposed that would drastically help Satos and gatos on the island. You can help the effort for this bill to become a law. If passed, this legislation would enact an effective spay/neuter policy and allow veterinarians from the mainland U.S. to come to Puerto Rico and perform high volume spay/neuter clinics. The legislation would also encourage adoption, and place a temporary five year moratorium on the sale of dogs and cats. A coalition would be created to help people stop overpopulation in their communities. This will have a huge impact on the animals of Puerto Rico!
Whether you live on the island or not, there are a couple steps you can take to help get this law passed.
3. Contact Representative Lydia Mendez (email@example.com) and Senator Jose Luis Dalmau (firstname.lastname@example.org) who are lawmakers in Puerto Rico. Tell them that you Support S1631 and C2950 because you deeply care about the animals of Puerto Rico.
We are extremely humbled and grateful for the generosity of the employees and management of El Conquistador Resort! They just presented us this check for $800!! They sold cupcakes as part of their fundraiser to help our rescue and transport operation. They know there is a need to help the animals of Puerto Rico, they know what we do, and the good people at El Conquistador stepped up to help, and for that we say thank you!
