After the Hurricane Maria in 2017, earthquakes and then COVID animals were abandoned in the streets trying to survive. Thank to the rescuers and animal lovers in Puerto Rico gave all there time and effort to help the animals to survive. They gave everything they have and more. Thanks to Andrea Herrick founder of Proud Rescuers of Puerto Rico and Evelyn Vaccaro the director and producer of the documentary movie ," For Sato Sake" Brining awareness to the world the help needed in Puerto Rico.


On September 21, 2011 my 5 pound Yorkie Opie James was attacked at a local dog park and met his demise. On that day I swore to him that I would dedicate my life to rescue in his memory. The next day I received a NY Times in my driveway (I do not subscribe) the universe had answered my plea. I opened it up to an article on "Dead Dog Beach" in Puerto Rico. I volunteered that day and was with the rescue for several years. Along the way I met so many amazing independent women rescuers across the island who needed help — so "PRoud Rescuers of PR" was born to help them continue to help the animals in need. Since then we have saved over 300+ dogs/puppies and over 200+ cats/kittens. We are a team and we believe there is strength in unity.
