The Benefits of Adopting a Puerto Rican Stray

When you adopt a rescued animal from Puerto Rico, you’re saving a life and gaining a loyal companion. Sato dogs and puppies are intelligent, loving, and easy to train, despite their harsh beginnings. Similarly, Puerto Rican stray cats and kittens display remarkable resilience and affection.

With over 600,000 stray satos and one million stray cats in need, your adoption is a blessing for both you and the animal. These pets have been thoroughly vetted and many are already socialized and socialized. By adopting, you support an organization dedicated to improving the lives of these incredible animals, enriching your home with a grateful and loving pet.

What a wonderful experience! From my initial discussions with Andrea Herrick to delivery of my new baby Luna, they kept me in the loop every step of the way with texts, calls and photos. I highly recommend adopting through PRoud Rescuers of Puerto Rico. I'm so thankful for everything they did to help me build my fur family. My heart is full again.

Working with Andrea and PRoud Rescuers of PR has helped me feel empowered as a rescuer. I had 5 puppies that needed to get their vaccines before being shipped to the states to their forever homes and PRoud Rescuers stepped up immediately covering the costs. The puppies are all in their forever homes thanks to this organization.

PRoud Rescuers of PR is the most AMAZING rescue! They have saved many dogs and cats from the streets of Puerto Rico, including our puppy (Cash). They are a wonderful group of people. Katherine (who interviewed us) was so friendly, answered all of our questions, and was so quick to respond. Ivette and Ruth provided such wonderful care for him in Puerto Rico (they wrote him a note that was so sweet it made me cry!) The transport coordinator made sure he had a safe flight planned. Andrea has been absolutely amazing and readily available to answer all of our questions. I’m sure there were other people involved in his care and we are just so thankful for everyone involved. Cash came home and adjusted so quickly. He is just perfect We are incredibly grateful for this rescue and highly recommend them to anyone looking to adopt
