Rescuing the Souls of
Puerto Rico


On the island of Puerto Rico there is a serious problem with dogs who are abused, abandoned, and living in horrible conditions. We are dedicated to help save these souls from their inevitable fate, and find them a happy home that will give them the life they truly deserve.

We are extremely committed to our rescues; when we take a pup off the streets, they become an important part of our family. We will do everything we can to save them and place them in a loving home.

We do this all with the help of volunteers, fosters, adopters and donations. Without help, we wouldn't be able to save so many souls!

About Us

SATO – roughly translates to “homeless dog” in english.


Puerto Rico is a magical place here in the Caribbean, full of beauty everywhere you go, but the stray / abandonment problem is all around too. Unfortunately, there are far too many people contributing to the problem, and few people that actually help.  

Before I moved to the island, I never considered rescue work as a passion of mine. However, driving through the streets of Puerto Rico, my boyfriend and I noticed strays everywhere. All we could think was, “we HAVE to save these poor defenseless souls!”


It all started with ONE.

I was walking by a homeless man, and noticed his very sick puppy; both of which looked like they had not eaten a decent meal in weeks. When I saw this, I couldn’t help myself, but ask if I could take care of this poor, little weak and hungry baby. Thankfully, the kindhearted man gave me his puppy to save, thus starting, “Souls of Satos”. This was my first rescue, and still means the world to me, even after all these years. This was the reason I was meant to come to this island, this was the moment I started 

Souls of Satos. 

Now, I’ve been able to grow and hire additional helping hands / volunteers to save so many dogs (and some kittens, along the way) with the help of many likeminded, caring individuals and rescue groups.

Together, we can make a difference and be the voice they need to be heard. Because, let’s be really honest, we all just want to be loved, it really is that simple. Together, we can save so many more sato SOULS!
