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!

Little Yuko Needs Surgery
Yuko is a sweet and snuggly little 4 month old pup who is in desperate need of surgery to save his life . Yuko and his 3 siblings were only about 2 months old when they were found abandoned in the countryside of Peñuelas, a small coastal village in Puerto Rico. The tiny siblings were sleeping out in the open on a pile of rocks, near a cardboard box.
At his foster home, Yuko was slow to put on weight. He struggled to keep up with his siblings. He developed a cough, and his foster mom noticed that his little heart was beating rapidly. When she snuggled with him, she could feel it pounding against his chest.
The veterinarian took x-rays and found that Yuko had an enlarged heart. He was referred to a specialist, and was diagnosed with Patent Ductus Arteriosus (PDA), with evidence of heart failure.
Yuko is very sick now, but he is an excellent candidate for surgery to repair his heart. With surgery, he should live a healthy life with a normal lifespan. Because he is such a cute and funny little guy, we know that he will be adopted quickly once he has recovered. Without surgery, Yuko probably won't live to be six months old. Please help us give him the chance to live the life he deserves.
We were humbled and honored to receive a most generous donation of $1,000 from the staff and employees of WAHVE - Work At Home Vintage Experts, a mainland U.S. organization that recently held their retreat in San Juan. These generous folks make it a practice to give back to the communities they visit. Their staff of 23 has many animal lovers and they spent a month fundraising to help rescued animals. While in town, they wanted to learn more about All Sato Rescue, so our president spent some time talking about our organization and our programs and projects. We have many Satos who will benefit from this incredible gesture of generosity. Thank you!
Puppies, puppies, and more puppies on their way to Monmouth County SPCA today
14 in all made the trip made possible thanks to the transport grant we received from ASPCA and Subaru of America, Inc. Adorable and adoptable!!
Saffron is safe now after being rescued in Rio Piedras. She was found near several larger dogs. Our rescuer, who was feeding dogs in the area, wanted to make sure the larger dogs didn't harm her. Isn't she adorable??!!
A first rescue!
The 12 year old grandson of our president just rescued his first Sato! We are so proud of him for helping little Diego get a second chance! Teaching about kindness and compassion is part of what we do. Passing that along to the younger generation one way to reduce the number of strays in Puerto Rico. We flew Diego to Monmouth County SPCA in New Jersey last Tuesday!
Our first 2017 rescue has puppies!
Our first rescue of 2017, Aceline, just gave birth to adorable puppies a few days ago!
Our Satos puppies were the stars of the show this past weekend on WCSH 6 in Maine!!
Eternally grateful for Gary's kindness and generosity!
When we think about all the integral people who help make All Sato Rescue successful, volunteer Gary Kreppel is at the top of the list. Gary adopted a Sato, Chopin, in 2001, and when Chopin passed away Gary started volunteering at Humane Society Naples (HSN) as a way to honor this special dog. Gary helped establish a partnership with HSN which has resulted in 375 of our rescued Satos being flown to Naples to find their forever homes. Additionally, Gary not only drives from Naples to Miami to pick up the precious cargo at the airport and then drives the pups back to the shelter, but he has also sponsored each of the transports. At the recent annual Humane Society Naples Appreciation Luncheon, Gary received the Animal Advocate Award. Our President, Edilia Vazquez, and ASR board member, Maritza Rodriguez, flew all the way from Puerto Rico to attend. Here they are with HSN Executive Director Michael Simonik.
Show your love for Satos
Help sponsor a Sato's flight from Puerto Rico. Today we are sending puppies to Sterling Animal Shelter and Monmouth County SPCA. Your generosity and heart can help us cover the cost of flying these adorable and deserving puppies to their new lives in the northeast. A donation of any amount will help defray our transport costs. These Satos love you, and all of us at All Sato Rescue send our deepest thanks!
Here's our first rescue of 2017!
When our volunteer saw her lying on the sidewalk he wasn't sure this sweet little dog was alive. Luckily, she got up but then ran. When our rescuer approached, she allowed herself to be rescued. It's like she knew that her life would change for the better, and now it has!
