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 3 595, 220 Domenech, San Juan, Puerto Rico, 00918).

Welcome to All Sato Rescue

ReunionsIt is time for the rescuers to come up from Puerto Rico to thank and honor the kind people who have given loving homes to our dogs. Time for the “parents” of our rescued Satos to come together to learn more about their pups’ backgrounds and meet the rescuers who plucked their Satos from the streets and beaches and made sure they were safe and fed and loved.

It's one of the highlights of our year to be able to see the dogs we rescued and meet the people who have welcomed our Satos into their homes! 

The events are free, but please register ahead of time.

28 Puppies Need Our Help

These are the 28 puppies all rescued together in Camuy. Talk about a big pile of cuteness! They're safe at Humane Society of Puerto Rico and as you can see they are quite content...and sleepy! They're only six weeks old and are underweight. We're helping in any way possible, and eventually will fly them to partner shelters. What's needed most right now are donations, foster homes, and food. If you can chip in a few dollars it would be greatly appreciated.

Photogenic and newsworthy Satos!

DANVERS, Mass. —Shelter puppies originally found abandoned in Puerto Rico have been flown to Massachusetts and will be available for adoption. The puppies were saved by All Sato Rescue, one of dozens of groups to receive funding through a grant program which supports the safe transport of rescue dogs from parts of the country where supply exceeds demand to areas where demand for adoptable dogs exceeds the supply.

Sponsor Sendy

We recently came across this young puppy with a broken leg in Piñones and saving him became a top priority. When the neighbor of one of our friends told us about this little guy, whom we’ve named Sendy, we immediately brought him to the veterinarian. Sendy’s femur was fractured which required surgery. Sendy is now on the mend as he recovers from the surgery. He is a very friendly dog! Our friend is holding a few different fundraisers trying to help with Sendy’s vet bill which is more than $2,000. Can you help sponsor Sendy by chipping in today?

A true fighter is rescued!

When we first rescued Alannah with her siblings we didn't know if she would make it. We did everything in our power to help her, and she fought like crazy and she made it! Here's a photo we took of Alannah at the airport on the morning she flew to New Jersey!! The best news of all is that we found out she was adopted from Monmouth County SPCA!!!

Generous children with hearts of gold!

We'd like to give a shout out to a class of fifth graders in Queens, New York for sending us bags of dog and puppy food, cans of puppy food, and medicine!!! They also sent us hand written cards. Here's a photo of little Amistad posing in front of the giant bags of food! The food couldn't have come at a better time as we had a few new puppy rescues severely emaciated and in need of serious nutrition. Thanks to these kind boys and girls, the puppies ate a lot of great food and made a full recovery! They have since been adopted!!! We are always in need of food and supplies to care for our Satos in foster homes.

Bastien and Bastienne Need Your Help

While driving through Rio Piedras on her way to feed the stray dogs on her daily route, one of our volunteers came across these two puppies. The brother and sister pair are missing almost all of their hair. Our volunteer couldn't just leave them behind! They're now off the street, have been seen by a vet, and are on a slow road to recovery. We need your help to cover their veterinary and food expenses. Will you sponsor Bastien & Bastienne? You can ensure that these two get everything they need, including special food and medications, by chipping in today.

This is what a litter of 10 rescued and hungry puppies looks like!!

Pups on route Sterling Animal Shelter

We sent a huge transport of 28 puppies from San Juan to Sterling Animal Shelter including these two named Joy and Jesse! These little puppies were abandoned in a box at a flea market in Vega Baja. Luckily they had a wonderful foster to care for them leading up to their big travel day today!
