Hope for the Lost and Abandoned Dogs of Puerto Rico

In the first of a series of reports from the U.S. commonwealth, we examine the widespread problem of "satos" or stray dogs, (there are thousands on them living on the island) following the tireless efforts of volunteers who rescue and prepare animals for eventual adoption in the United States.

P.T. for Pets:Once exclusive to human medicine, physical therapy is crossing over into the canine world. Beverly Amsler of Radio IQ visits a veterinary treatment center that employs the practice.

Those dogs need the help and care of people, and we should give it to them so that they can live a safe life. - Kris Krohn

I am so glad I adopted all 3 of my dogs through ARF of Rincon PR. they are the most loving dogs i've ever had. And one of them came from this beach. It breaks my heart the long and hard journey they all had to get to me in NJ, It is ME who truly is the lucky one <3
