Most people already know that my crazy dog Roxie was a stray rescued in Puerto Rico. She is already 6 years old but she was born on an island that is over populated by stray dogs and a lack of education and compassion about the problem. When she was 6 months old she was hit by a car and suffered a broken leg, which i attribute to her being rescued by the Save A Sato organization.
I love Roxie very much, she is the most loyal dog i have ever had and her personality far exceeds her behavioral shortcomings.
I love Puerto Rico, it's a beautiful island and i have vacationed there several times. Each time i am overcome with sadness at the amount of stray dogs wandering around, clearly unhealthy and malnourished. It was the saddest this past year because i knew that Roxie was at home in Boston and that without the kidness and donations of compassionate caring people, she would still be wandering the island.
It's a cause that is worth reading up on. There are lots of things you can do, from donating to the Sato rescue organization itself, to contributing to a local shelter that works with the rescuers in Puerto Rico. Definitely visit the site and read!
