Sato Shelter Partners


The Sato Project partners with no-kill shelters in the New York region as well as having a select group of foster families in the tri-state area. They are absolutely vital to our on-going rescue efforts.  While the best case scenario is that an adoptive family is waiting for each and every dog when they leave Puerto Rico, that doesn't always happen. In order to make room for other rescued dogs in PR we partner with wonderful no-kill shelters who take our dogs when an adoptive family is not immediately available.

We are always looking to expand our shelter and sanctuary partnerships. Please email if you are interested in working with us.

Animal Haven

The first Sato Project dogs will arrive at Animal Haven in New York City ( in September. Many of our dogs have already live in NYC and we have a huge fan and support base there. The Sato Project had always dreamed about having a partner in the City where our incredible rescues could be seen by a huge audience in a fabulous comfortable setting. Where better than SOHO for a pup to find their forever home? I mean who doesn’t want to be in the most exciting city in the World?
