Back in 2009, we had the opportunity to attend the "All Sato Reunion" held by Northeast Animal Shelter in Salem, Massachusetts. More on that event coming soon but first, the reason we traveled an hour north on a blistering hot summer day:
|Jan and Bella meet Nilsa, Bella's rescuer.|
|I think Bella remembers her, don't you?|
Nilsa is a Save a Sato volunteer. She rescues starving and abused dogs off the streets of Puerto Rico, brings them to her home and nurses them back to health before they are sent to "partner shelters" in the States for adoption. I cried upon meeting her.
(Please try to ignore the prong collar. We were new to reactive dogs and stupid.)
