Punta Santiago Dogs is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. Your tax-deductible donation supports our mission to provide community support, care, and transport for the abandoned dogs of Puerto Rico. 

Puerto Rico has one of the most out-of-control populations of street animals in the world, which has resulted in a unique mixture of dog breeds referred to as SATOS. These dogs are abandoned, neglected, starved, abused, and often die of injuries, parasites, disease, and infection that could be easily treated with minimal intervention.

Despite everything, satos are notorious for their loyalty and affection, surviving only because they are such exceptional companions.

Our team has been living and working in the town of Punta Santiago, Puerto Rico for over a decade, many of us brought here to research monkeys at the Cayo Santiago Biological Field Station on a nearby island. As full-time students and volunteers, we spent all of our remaining time and money caring for and relocating the satos in need. We just could not watch them suffer.

While many of us no longer work on the island, our hearts are always with them, and we will continue doing everything we can to support the healthy future of Punta Santiago's dogs and communities.
