It’s estimated there are 300,000 homeless dogs in Puerto Rico. These homeless pups, called “Satos,” are often discarded because their humans can no longer care for them. Many end up wandering the streets trying to survive, or in the shelter system where there is a 97% euthanasia rate.
But our new Rescue Roast Partner, The Sato Project is working to change the reality for these dogs. Since 2011, The Sato Project has been dedicated to rescuing abused and abandoned dogs in Puerto Rico.
This amazing group takes in these pups, funds their medical treatment and transports them out of Puerto Rico to loving homes abroad. But it’s not just about rescue, it’s also about prevention. The Sato Project also provides free spay and neuter services to animals on the island to prevent the creation of more Sato pups.
Now through November 15th, 100% of the profits from the sale of Rescue Roast will help The Sato Project save pups in Puerto Rico.
So we hope you'll grab a bag and join us in supporting this incredible organization and initiative.
The holiday season is a time for love, family, and comfort. Unfortunately, countless pups must spend the holidays alone in the shelter simply waiting for the perfect family to give them a second chance.
Three Percent. That is the survival rate of a shelter dog in Puerto Rico. It’s a grim fate for a “Sato,” the name commonly used to refer to homeless dogs in Puerto Rico and astonishingly, there are estimated to be as many as 500,000 of these Sato pups.
To help provide comfort and love to pups waiting to be saved, we're providing as many blankets as possible to our shelter partners coast to coast. For every blanket sold this season, we're donating a blanket to a rescue pup waiting on a forever family.
