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.

Welcome to All Sato Rescue


We are so excited to fly up to Massachusetts later this week for our Rescue Reunion at Woofstock. We hope you'll bring your Sato and come see us at this annual event hosted by Buddy Dog Humane Society. It is a truly moving experience for our rescuers to reunite with some of the dogs they rescued and fostered, and be able to say thank you in person to all the adopters. Woofstock is Saturday, September 26th from 11am-3pm at the Hudson Elks Pavilion in Hudson, MA. See you there!

Rescued Just in Time!

Alicia was rescued just two days before giving birth to a litter of 12 puppies!!. Last week, a young woman who often fosters for us saw a very pregnant dog at a local baseball field. She contacted us and we talked with her about what fostering this dog and her future puppies would entail. She agreed to take on this lifesaving assignment providing Alicia with a comfortable spot inside her home to give birth. Alicia is so sweet, and is a great mom taking care of all her puppies. It's going to take a big effort to feed all these mouths, provide vaccinations and medical care, and then fly them to a partner shelter when they're ready. Can you help sponsor Alicia and her puppies?

Meet Abram!

One of our amazing volunteers rescued this tiny puppy in Bayamon! He was lying on the ground and our volunteer spotted him while she was feeding a group of stray dogs. He's been to the vet who estimates he is only 2-3 weeks old!! We've named this little guy, Abram, and so far he's doing really well in his foster home.

What are you doing with your tax refund this year?

Why not donate some of it on this #TaxDay to help us with our life-saving rescue work. $10.40 will cover one vaccination for a puppy. $104.00 will fly two puppies to a partner shelter in the northeast. Any amount in between helps, too! All the Satos in our network of foster homes say "Gracias!"

Lupita needs your help

We are trying to raise $500 to pay for lifesaving heartworm treatment for Lupita and another dog. Anything you can give will give these pups a fighting chance.

Seven puppies found need your help

At first, 6 puppies rescued but when the woman who found them went back, she discovered one more. We are looking for sponsors to help pay for boarding these puppies. Any thing you can give will be helpful.

Foster Homes in Puerto Rico Urgently Needed

Help save a life by opening up your home for a few weeks to a dog or puppy in need. All Sato Rescue is looking for people to temporarily care for some of our rescued dogs until they are ready to fly to partner shelters in the northeast. The time commitment is approximately 3-6 weeks. If you are interested in helping out, or have questions, please email and

Antoine is looking for donations

We need help raising funds for heartworm treatment for Antoine. He is 2 years old and weighs 8 pounds. Anything you can donate would be greatly appreciated.

All Sato goes to DC

In Washington, D.C. we attended the Taking Action For Animals conference hosted by The Humane Society of the United States. We had a great meeting with the legislative assistant to Puerto Rico's Resident Commissioner/U.S. Congressman, Pedro Pierluisi. We discussed many important issues, especially those pertaining to animal welfare in Puerto Rico.
