Our Mission

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! You can make a one time donation or become a monthly donor using your credit card or paypal. You may also send a check payable to All Sato Rescue PMB 595, 220 Domenech, San Juan, Puerto Rico, 00918.

Welcome to All Sato Rescue

Thank you al!

Thank you to everyone who donated to our Valentine’s Day fundraiser. Your support means the world to us and all the Satos in our care. Your generosity makes it possible for us to rescue and transport Satos like Suzy to shelter partners where they then get adopted into wonderful, loving homes. ❤️🇵🇷🐶

Renegade Flies North!

This adorable puppy got to fly in the cabin on his flights from Puerto Rico to Portland, Maine over the weekend. His name is Renegade and he is the most wonderful puppy. He will be up for adoption soon at Animal Refuge League of Greater Portland. We are so grateful for the volunteers who escorted him up to Maine.

Three Transports in One Day!

We had an extremely busy day with three transports back to back yesterday. We flew these three, along with two other puppies, to One Love Dog Rescue, Inc. 501c3 in New York. We also sent five puppies to SAVE Rescue Shelter in New Jersey, and seven Satos to our shelter partner in Maine, Animal Refuge League of Greater Portland.

We just rescued four more puppies in the El Yunque Rainforest!

They’re on their way out of the rainforest heading to a foster home. Check out this video of them and if you’re able to make a donation to help us care for them, we would greatly appreciate it. Thank you! 🇵🇷🐶

Six Safe Puppies

Here are the six newest puppies welcomed into our rescue program! They’re all safe after we found them in Ponce.

Help trim the Sato tree!

We need your help because so many Satos need ours! In the year since Hurricane Maria we have seen an increase in abandoned animals and we are trying our best to keep up with an ever increasing demand for our services. We are rescuing, and helping others rescue, literally dozens of litters of puppies. This in addition to the many injured dogs and horrific cases of cruelty and neglect. But we can make a difference together. This holiday season, we’re asking for your support to help us rescue and care for animals in need by trimming our virtual tree. Our fundraising goal is $20,000, and with your help we can reach it.

Saving Malia

This tiny puppy named Malia is one of our newest rescues. We're introducing her to you on Giving Tuesday, the international day of charitable giving, in hopes that you will consider sponsoring her. She's just two months old and was rescued recently with multiple broken bones. Some athletes practicing in Guayama saw her and noticed she couldn't walk. One of them took her home and contacted us. A veterinary surgeon with whom we work says her bones are healing in place and she may not need surgery. Her condition is improving and we are hoping and praying Malia continues her recovery. Please consider making a donation to help Malia, and so many other special needs dogs we are caring for right now. Your donation will help us continue saving lives, and for that we'd like to say thank you!

Lucky puppies

Abandonment, abuse, and neglect. Every day we see the effect of cruel treatment towards Puerto Rico‘s Satos. Then there are dogs hit by cars and those with special needs. We are on the front lines every day working as hard as we possibly can to help these defenseless animals. All summer long and into the fall we have been rescuing, and helping others rescue, dozens of litters of Sato puppies each month. Literally dozens of litters each month.

One of our rescuers found a pregnant Sato in a pharmacy parking lot. Three days later she gave birth to seven puppies. Now they have a chance to live a life where they are loved. Will you donate to help them get adoption ready?

These three siblings, Jadon, Noah and Ayden were found on the side of a road with their skin in awful condition. They barely had any coat and had sores on their skin. We’ve nursed them back to health with assistance from our talented veterinarians and amazing fosters and look at them now.

You can help us continue rescuing Satos like these with a donation of any amount.

We've been very busy saving lives this week!

We sent 18 puppies to Sterling Animal Shelter in MA on Monday. Then on Wednesday, we sent a total of 25 dogs to our amazing shelter partners! Seven puppies went to One Love Dog Rescue, Inc. in Ronkonkoma, NY; six dogs went to Animal Refuge League of Greater Portland in Maine; and nine went to Buddy Dog Humane Society, Inc. in Sudbury, MA. We also sent a mother and her two babies to Washington DC into the loving hands of a wonderful woman who was sent to the island as part of a power authority brigade from Maryland to help restore power. She alerted us to the dogs and one of our volunteers picked them up in the inland town of Comerio and took them to a vet clinic in San Juan to prepare them for their big trip. And we aren't done yet! This Saturday, we will send six dogs to Pet Tails Rescue in Northwood, New Hampshire and six puppies to the Monmouth County SPCA in Freehold, New Jersey. If you're doing the math, that's 55 dogs launched into their wonderful new lives this week alone. We couldn't do it without your support, without our incredible rescue partners, and without our spectacular adopters!
