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 to ALL SATOS RESCUE, PMB No. 595, P.O. Box 194000, San Juan, PR 00919-4000 (any packages please send to All Sato Rescue, PMB 595, 220 Domenech, San Juan, Puerto Rico, 00918).

Welcome to All Sato Rescue

Rescued just in time!

Another Sato rescued from the streets of Puerto Rico just hours before giving birth! One of our volunteers saw this sweet dog in her neighborhood. Our rescuer was told that people abandoned the dog when they decided to move. On Monday, we rescued this dog and named her Luna. The next day her litter was born! We are thankful that these puppies were born in a foster home rather than somewhere much less safe.

25 Satos flying to new homes!

Thanks to the generosity of a private donor, today we flew 25 Satos, most of them puppies, to the northeast aboard charter planes! We gathered early this morning to make the transport happen, sending our Satos to Animal Rescue Fund of The Hamptons and The Humane Society of Atlantic County!

Update on Yuko: Adopted!!

Rescued with his siblings from a remote area of Puerto Rico. Underwent life-saving heart surgery. Given so much love in his foster home. Flew to Animal Refuge League of Greater Portland.

**Update on Yuko**

Thanks to your generous donations, Yuko has had his surgery and he is doing great--he is 100 percent healthy. In fact, tomorrow he will fly to Boston to go to the Animal Refuge League of Greater Portland to find his forever home!

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.

Thank you Work At Home Vintage Experts

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!

Lucky Saffron

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!
