A Tale of Devastation and Recovery

November 04, 2020

In 2017, category 4 Hurricane Irma and category 5 Hurricane Maria devastated the island of Puerto Rico, nearly 3,000 people lost their lives, thousands more were left homeless, and the island’s animal population was equally devastated.  

Prior to the hurricanes, it was estimated there were 300,000 homeless dogs, but that number is now believed to have ballooned to 500,000. 

And as if that weren’t challenging enough, 2020 has brought more hurricanes, devastating earthquakes and a global pandemic.

As mentioned by The Sato Project founder, Chrissy Beckles, “Not many people could survive… a category 4 hurricane then two weeks later a category 5, earthquakes… it’s difficult and... it’s incredibly humbling to see. Hurricane Maria, Hurricane Irma, earthquakes.  Whatever is thrown at these incredible people, they just keep moving forward and they get through it.”

Since the beginning of 2020, The Sato Project has also stepped up to evacuate dogs from earthquake damaged and overwhelmed municipal shelters. In response to COVID-19, Chrissy and her team have distributed over 30,000 lbs of dog and cat food to pet owners in need through community pet food pantries. And as always, The Sato Project continues to transport pets to loving adopters throughout the country. 

With 100% of the profits from Rescue Roast Blendthrough November 15th, we can support the incredible work of The Sato Project and fund a second chance for countless pups in need of a helping hand!
