Spay & Neuter street dogs of Huanchaco, Peru



We send volunteers & vets to work with the municipality and local Peruvian veterinarians to conduct free spay/neuter & medical clinic work in the Huanchaco & Trujillo region of Peru. In addition, we also work to improve the local shelter.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The main problem is a cultural one. Many people do not see dogs as valuable. There is also a practical problem: without veterinary services, particularly sterilization, there are too many dogs competing for too few resources, making life extremely difficult for these animals. In addition, the concept of animal shelters is brand new and needs support and promotion from outside organizations.

How will this project solve this problem?

1) Advocating for value of the human/animal relationship through community outreach, media, and local partnerships. 2) Offer a practical solution by reducing the number of dogs living on the street through spay/neuter clinics.

Potential Long Term Impact

A cultural shift. The more people exposed to the benefits of sterilization and the more we can promote the value of the human/animal relationship in a town the size of Huanchaco - the better chance we have at impacting and shifting the local culture.
