The Santuario de Animales San Francisco de Asís (SASFA) is located in Cabo Rojo, and it is the first animal sanctuary in western Puerto Rico. We are also one of four shelters on the island where euthanasia is not applied due to lack of space or time awaiting adoption.
We work diligently to find homes for the dogs and cats that we have in our care; those who are not adopted live permanently at the Santuario. There, they will receive the care and love they need to lead full, happy, and active lives.
SASFA is incorporated under the State Department of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico and is headed by a Board of Directors. The Santuario is duly incorporated in the Department of State of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico.
The organization operates in its entirety thanks to donations that are 100% dedicated to the care and welfare of our animals. To continue this work, we depend on supporters like you to give us a hand by joining our team of volunteers, joining our foster home network, donating, or adopting one of our residents.
