Sato Heart Rescue, Wilton, NH

Giving dogs a second chance!

Sato Heart Rescue of NH


The Sato Heart Rescue, of Wilton, NH, is a small group of dedicated individuals in the Hillsborough County area who work exclusively with the Second Chance Animal Rescue, in Villalba, Puerto Rico, to find homes for Satos.  “Sato” (pronounced “saw-toe”) is Puerto Rican slang for street/stray dogs.

Satos come in all sizes, but they are mostly small to medium size dogs.  Upon arrival, many are initially shy.  However, once they realize that they are no longer in jeopardy, their true personalities surface as they settle-in and begin to relax.

We are a shelterless “foster home” rescue, so all dogs in our care are living with families in the area. This gives us an opportunity to understand their personality within a home environment, allowing us to best match them with the proper family.

Once a dog reaches our rescue, our foster home families and Director of Adoptions begin the search for a perfect match – a family who will give the pet a wonderful home.

While waiting for their forever home, our dogs receive the best of care.  Upon arrival in New Hampshire, all dogs are quarantined for 48 hours, after which time they are seen by a licensed veterinarian for a State of New Hampshire Health Certificate.  The dogs are then placed with a foster family as they await their forever home.

Rescued on 10/15/15 at 1 week old. (Now 11 months old and about 40 lbs) This cutie was thrown away on a back mountain road in a box with the siblings at 1 week old with the Momma dog. Thankfully they were found and are safe and sound now. Buttons is timid, but is continuously becoming more and more comfortable with those she spends time with. And when with someone she is comfortable with she is a little better with strangers. On a day to day basis she behaves like a happy playful puppy almost all the time. She and the other dog in her fosters house get along great. She is off leash except when we are walking on the road. Buttons would do best with another dog in the house to help her gain confidence! All Buttons needs is to be given the time required to develop the trust needed to relax and enjoy herself. She is fully vetted and ready for a forever home. Please open your heart and home to the precious soul. She is currently in NH. If you are interested in her, please fill out an application. The adoption fee is $365.00 which must be paid in cash or check.
Baby, Female, Large
