BENEFITING: The SATO Project
Too many dogs in Puerto Rico struggle to stay alive each day at a place called Dead Dog Beach,where there is no water or food source for miles.
The Sato Project is dedicated to rescuing abandoned & abused dogs in Puerto Rico. For The Sato Project, rescuing means more than just pulling a dog out of a dangerous situation. We are completely invested in every rescue we have. We spend thousands of dollars every month to fully vet the dogs we rescue, vaccinate them, spay and neuter them, and fly them into forever homes outside the island. The reason why we don’t keep our rescues on the island is that the adoption rate is less than 1%. In Puerto Rican Municipal shelters, the euthanasia rate is 99%. We know that stray dogs have little to no chance of survival on the island.
Since The Sato Project’s inception in November 2011, we have rehabilitated and adopted an average of 26 dogs per month in the US. That’s almost one life saved EVERY DAY.
We understand that flying dogs off the island does not solve the problem. That is why we have been working on spay/neuter initiatives, education programs, and we are meeting with Puerto Rican officials and networking to make permanent change for the dogs of Puerto Rico. We dream of the day when there will be no more abandoned and abused animals on the island. With your help and all our generous donors, we can make this dream come true.
A donation to the Sato Project will help rescue and rehabilitate the dogs on Dead Dog Beach. It costs close to $1,000 per dog to rescue, vet, spay/neuter them, and send them to Boston and Brooklyn to find their forever homes.
These dogs deserve to know safe homes where they receive love and affection.
