Today, we intake many dogs from Puerto Rico. These dogs have generally been rescued from the streets and are often referred to as “Satos”. Despite having often endured some hardship in life prior to their arrival, they make some of the most wonderful family pets we’ve ever known. We also intake many dogs from animal control facilities in the Southern US. These “death row” pups were lucky enough to be saved only days our hours before euthanasia. They vary widely in breed, size and shape but almost all were obviously pets at some point in life. Less frequently we also intake dogs from Europe.
