In September 2017, Hurricane Maria hit the shores of Puerto Rico resulting in $91.61 billion dollars of damage. The island is still rebuilding and in the wake of the devastation, another crisis looms as an estimated 500,000 stray dogs - "Satos" - are being left to die.

We - Team Dogist  - are asking for your help to change this.  

Help us save the Satos - the pups of Puerto Rico - and give them the chance at a good life - the life all dogs deserve.

All funds go directly to The Sato Project  - an accredited non-profit that rescues and rehabilitates the dogs of Puerto Rico and runs initiatives to end animal overpopulation on the island.

Breakdown of Giving:

$1,000 - Average cost to rescue one dog and find it a forever home

$500 - One month of treatment and boarding for heartworm

$250 - Cost of one 'Freedom Flight' to NYC

$100 - Spay/neuter surgery for one dog

$75 - Set of vaccines and microchip

$50 - Medium transport crate


About The Sato Project:

- A non-profit organization that saves abused and abandoned dogs in Puerto Rico. 

- Has saved 2,700 dogs in six years.

- Efforts include rescuing pups, nursing pups back to health, and getting their dogs adoption-ready before being sent on a "Freedom Flight" to NYC.

- Efforts also include veterinary care, adoption services and addressing the underlying problem of animal abandonment and overpopulation through local advocacy and community spay/neuter/vaccine clinics.

- Established in November 2011, President and Founder Christina Beckles, a former Golden Gloves boxing champion,  has dedicated her life to this cause. 

As she says, "I fight, so they don't have to."

Please, join us in this fight - It is time to save the Satos.
