Thank you for visiting our Strut Your Mutt Team page. We’re raising money to help end the killing of pets in America’s shelters. And we plan on having a lot of fun doing it!
Every day, nearly 2,200 dogs and cats are killed in America's shelters simply because they don't have safe places to call home. That number should be zero. That’s why our team is participating in Best Friends Animal Society’s Strut Your Mutt event to raise money for animals. But we need your help, too.
Animal Lighthouse Rescue's mission is focused on satos, which is slang for "stray dog" in Puerto Rico. Satos are usually small to medium-sized dogs that are smart, healthy and quick to bond with those who give them affection. They often have the #squattysato body as we call it - a lot of low-riders! As with most mixed-breed dogs though, we cannot adequately describe the myriad of personalities and beautiful mixes that come from the combination of breeds on the island.
There are an estimated half a million satos in Puerto Rico. Before Hurricane Maria, the estimate was 200,000. And the problem just continues to grow.
We have saved more than a hundred this year alone, but that is just a small dent. In order to have more impact, we need your help! We need volunteers and donations.
Please join us either by registering for our team or donating to one of our team members.
Let’s save as many satos together as we can!
Thank you for your support!
