The Student Rescue Project is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization dedicated to animal welfare education.  We work in partnership with several rescue organizations in Puerto Rico, The Virgin Islands and other areas of the world where animal overpopulation is an issue.  Our goal is to educate students about issues surrounding pet overpopulation and offer hands-on experience with strategies for mitigation.  It is our goal to empower students with the skills, respect and understanding needed to make a positive impact on animal’s lives in places where cultural and socio-economic differences may call for a different approach than they’re used to.

Our volunteers participate in our many programs that are designed to offer skills and understanding from local foster and adoption programs in NH and VT to service learning trips to work with our partners abroad.  We offer service learning trips for high school students that include a building (or rebuilding) project designed to help get more pets off the streets.  Our Animal Rescue Gap Year Internship is a program specifically for students taking a year off between high school and college.  And our P.A.W.S. program allows college students to foster puppies as they prepare to find their forever homes.  For more information about our programs, see the menu above or contact admin@surfinsato.org.
