Holiday help for Satos!

$2,020 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 35 people in 57 months
Sato: puertorican slang for a mixed breed dog. My only wish this Holiday season is to help save these homeless and abused satos.

Puerto Rico has a terrible problem with dog overpopulation, neglect, abuse and abandonement. 
These dogs have terrible lives, they are starved to death, struck by cars, thrown out in the trash, tortured, they have rocks and bottles thrown at them. More than 150,000 homeless dogs strugle to survive on the island's streets and beaches. In Puerto Rico the kill rate in shelters has been estimated as high as 97% . This breaks my heart.

I've always been a HUGE animal advocate and have taken in 7 dogs into my own home. After thinking of ways to make more of a difference, I decided to create a fundraising account during the holiday season to help dog rescue groups in Puerto Rico.  I simply DO NOT want any gifts from my friends and family, all I want is for everyone to donate money and help the cause. These beautiful pups certainly need this a lot more than I need gifts.

By the end of 2014 I want to equally divide the money raised and donate it to each one of the below listed rescue  groups.

There are a few non-profit organizations dedicated to ending the suffering of stray dogs in Puerto Rico, but their work seems endless as they provide food, medical attention and low cost spray-neuter programs.
My mission is to provide these rescue groups with some help for their veterinary bills, heart worm pills, Petsmart gift cards for food, toys, crates & more ...

Here is a list of the non-profit organizations I will be helping!! Take a look at their website and you will see all the amazing work they do
