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

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!

Our first 2017 rescue has puppies!

Our first rescue of 2017, Aceline, just gave birth to adorable puppies a few days ago!

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!

A brighter future for Calypso

Here's Calypso the moment we rescued him, now he's flying to Humane Society Naples!!! In all, 15 puppies are flying to The Sunshine State!

Here's Calypso the moment we rescued him, and tonight he's flying to Humane Society Naples!!! In all, 15 puppies are flying to The Sunshine State!

Curious George needs our help

We are doing our best at this very moment to keep this little guy comfortable. He was rescued a couple nights ago after being hit by a car. He spent the night at the emergency vet and we have since transferred him to one of the vets with whom we work closely. The good news is that all x-rays came back negative, however, this Sato is on pain medication because he hurts all over. When we found him he had blood in his ears and nose. At this point, we are watching him closely to see if he has any neurological issues.

We've named him Curious George. He's a little Sato only weighing about 20 pounds, yet he's a fighter. If you can afford to chip in a few dollars towards his care, we would greatly appreciate it, as the vet bills will add up quickly.

Brand New Satos

This is Pachi and Yetti. When their mom gave birth in Bayamón, we were there. We will always be there for these pups, and as many others as we possibly can!
