South Street Seaport Museum partners with Animal Lighthouse Rescue to host a puppy adoption event, where you can meet nine puppies transported from Puerto Rico to New York, on Sunday, October 16, 2022 from 11am-3pm at Pier 16 (Fulton and South Streets). For more information, visit seaportmuseum.org/animal-adoption.
Animal Lighthouse Rescue rehabilitates street dogs called “satos” from Puerto Rico, which is still healing from the devastation of Hurricane Maria — now coupled with new destruction from Hurricane Fiona.
Stop by Pier 16 to give one of these resilient, lovable pooches a new lease on life, and find the newest addition to your family’s crew. Not ready to adopt? Get more information about fostering, and learn how you can help Animal Lighthouse Rescue in their recovery efforts.
About Animal Lighthouse Rescue
Animal Lighthouse Rescue is a non-profit organization dedicated to the rescue of stray dogs in Puerto Rico, called “satos.” Our team of volunteers in New York City works closely with El Faro de los Animales, a no-kill shelter in Humacao, PR. Our mission is to better the quality of life for abandoned satos by transporting them to New York City, finding them temporary homes within our foster network, making sure they are healthy and adjusted, and ultimately placing them into their perfect “furever” home.
