For Spay/Neuter Awareness Month, Save The Satos is launching a comprehensive campaign focused on addressing the stray dog crisis in Puerto Rico through Trap, Neuter, Release (TNR) initiatives.
TRAP. NEUTER. RELEASE. A TNR program manages and controls populations of free-roaming dogs. These dogs are trapped, vaccinated, spayed/neutered, and then released back to their original location, where they can live out their lives without contributing to further population growth.
Our February TNR mission aims to address overpopulation and improve the welfare of these animals while also preventing future generations from facing the same challenges. This is the single MOST IMPORTANT answer to this crisis, an estimated 500,000+ stray dogs roaming the streets of Puerto Rico, a Commonwealth of the United States of America.
We are raising funds in February and will leave for this TNR project in early March of 2024. Please donate to our cause to help stop the suffering of the stray dogs of Puerto Rico.
Save the Satos Inc. is a non-profit, registered 501c3 organization.
Save the Satos has a three-part mission.
1. We are focused on changing the lives of the stray dogs "Satos" of Puerto Rico. Save the Satos rescues the unwanted, adoptable dogs of the island and transports them to New Jersey. They are made happy and healthy, socialized, spayed/neutered and put up for adoption to find their forever home.
2. Save the Satos also focuses on helping pet owners in Puerto Rico by providing food, shelter, spay/neuter, flea/tick/heart worm prevention, vaccines and veterinary care to families in need.
3. Save the Satos also focuses on “TNR” Trap, Neuter and Release of the feral dogs of the island that can not be put into homes because they have lived most of their lives on the streets and are not socialized around people. This will decrease the stray population by sterilizing the true strays of the island so they can not produce any more unwanted litters of puppies.
There are an estimated 500,000 stray dogs in Puerto Rico, a US Commonwealth about the size of Connecticut. Back in October of 2018 four team members went to the island to see if they could help. Throughout the week, the team saved over 30 dogs. Within the next 8 months, the team visited the island 3 more times and continued to save another 50 Satos and placed them in loving homes. They volunteered at The Spayathon for Puerto Rico, doing everything they could to make a difference, but it still was not enough. This is when Save the Satos was formed. We have made it our life’s mission to not stop until we make a difference in the stray population on this beautiful little island.
