Scruffy _ Animal Rescue Puerto Rico

“Scruffy is coming along wonderfully. He is totally housebroken - amazingly. He doesn't try to dig his way out of the back yard. He loves to play with his favorite toy "Mr. Quacky." He loves to chew on bones and follow me everywhere.
Where I sit; he sits.”
~ Sarah Spilka

Tourist Information

The following are resources for tourists trying to locate help for an animal in need. Amigos de los Animales often works with tourists interested in taking stray animals home. We go the extra mile to help tourists who want to help our satos. Because Puerto Rico is considered a Commonwealth of the United States, animal travel from Puerto Rico to the Continental U.S. is considered State to State travel. All that is needed is a travel certificate in order to fly your newfound sato home!
