Porter PocketsTM is a business that values the health and well-being of the communities in which we all live. To demonstrate this commitment, we donate 5% percent of the net proceeds from each of our bags sold to support the valuable work of non-profit organizations who engage in service for the broader good. We focus our efforts primarily on animal welfare; animal/human partnerships in therapy, education and service; and clean air, water, & land initiatives. Our goal is to feature a different non-profit each month who will benefit from our sales. Because we are a new start-up, we may choose to keep a single non-profit as the recipient longer than a month to better ensure the donation they receive from us is of substance.
If you are part of a non-profit that would like to become one of our partners, please send information about your organization and interest to firstname.lastname@example.org
For the months of February, March, and April we honor the critical efforts and dedication of The Sato Project, based in Puerto Rico. Please see the important work of The Sato Project to get homeless dogs off the streets. at https://www.thesatoproject.org/
The Sato Project is dedicated to rescuing abused and abandoned dogs from Puerto Rico.
What We Do
The Sato Project primarily works in the municipality of Yabucoa, on the southeastern coast of the island, which has been rated the poorest of all 78 Puerto Rican municipalities. The median household income is well below the national average and over half of its population lives below the Federal poverty line.
We concentrate our rescue on a place known as Dead Dog Beach. As its name states, it is usually a last resting place for dogs, and it is not a happy one. No dog walks to Dead Dog Beach - it is at the end of a long road with no residences - they are dumped there. There is no food or fresh water on the beach. We are the dogs’ only source of food, fresh water, and most importantly, love, on a daily basis.
We take our rescue mission very seriously. Rescuing dogs means more than just pulling them off a beach or the streets. We are dedicated to each and every one of our dogs and we want to give them the greatest chance in life. After what they have been through, what they have witnessed, we never want them to suffer again.
The Sato Project is making permanent change in Puerto Rico. We encourage you to join us.
