I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, not good with dogs, and not good with cats.
Hi! My name is Ana! I hope you will take a look at what I have to say! I was abandoned on the streets of Puerto Rico about 6 years ago. A local family tried to watch out for me because I lived in a secluded area and was relatively safe. I had at least two litters of puppies that were all rescued before me because they were cute and cuddly, and I guess they didn't think I was anymore. I spent 6 years on the streets, and finally when the area I lived in became unsafe the family that watched out for me contacted Save a Sato for help. I was so happy to fly to New York this summer! I just knew that things were going to get better for me! I have been waiting at the shelter since July and I am sad because I still get overlooked. People think I am too old. But I have SO MUCH life left in me! I play and am as energetic as any puppy! The people at the shelter think I'm hilarious because I throw toys, and roll around on my back and do silly little things to make them happy! I have a scar on my back where the hair doesn't grow back. I don't remember why I have it, but I promise it doesn't take away from how cute I am! I think I would like a family of my own with no other dogs or cats. I do like SOME dogs, but I am used to being by myself so I really, really like to be the center of attention. Overall, I am a happy, very healthy girl! I can walk with you, cuddle with you and be your very best friend, if you would give me the chance! :)
Hello there! I am a volunteer for Save a Sato Rescue located in San Juan, PR. I run a boarding kennel and partner shelter in Albion, NY(near Rochester/Buffalo). We are a no kill shelter that helps up to 1000 dogs get off the streets of Puerto Rico and into loving homes each year. Our rescue is 100% volunteer. There are NO paid members. Currently there are over 200,000 homeless dogs wandering the streets of Puerto Rico...because of the failing economy, many people are losing their homes. Shelters are full and the only option for many is to turn their beloved family dog out onto the streets. We cannot ignore these animals. We do have a website and active FB page where you can see us at work.
Our Adoption Process...
There is an application which is required for initial approval, with personal references, and vet references. We may require a home visit, each adoption is different. We are easy to work with, friendly and try to fit the right pet in the right situation!
