About Us

Adopting A Friend

A little face has stolen your heart. The first thing to do is contact us by phone or email and let us know which angel you are interested in adopting. We do have a mandatory adoption application that EVERY potential adopter must complete. To request an adoption application, please express your interest with an email to adoption@thesatoproject.com. Once we have approved you for adoption then we can begin the logistics of getting your new family member to you.

Who We Are

The Sato Project is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to rescuing abandoned and abused animals from Puerto Rico.

We officially started in November 2011. Our work in Puerto Rico began long before that.  The Founder and President of The Sato Project, Chrissy Beckles has been rescuing dogs in Puerto Rico since 2005. The Sato Project continues the amazing efforts started by Ginny Cornett and her group Manos Por Patas. They started operations on Dead Dog Beach in 2007. Ginny and Chrissy worked together for many years. Ginny worked tirelessly to help the dogs of Dead Dog Beach and when her health no longer allowed her to operate Manos Por Patas, Chrissy stepped in. Two years later Manos Por Patas closed and The Sato Project was born.

The Sato Project has HUGE plans for the dogs of Puerto Rico.  We encourage you to look at the various projects we operate and propose to start.

We fight so the dogs of Puerto Rico don’t have to.
