Spay & Neuter street dogs of Huanchaco, Peru

We're 90% set on our next date!

Hello wonderful supporters,

You know you're doing something good when you are doing little outreach and yet still people find you, find the generosity to donate, and want support your project. We're still blown away how many great people (yourselves) stumble their way across the Perros Project and give the $10, $20, or $50 to help make our spay & neuter projects possible.

At this moment both Courtney and I are away from Portland, OR for the next five months working on a side project/book and returning in December. Originally we were aiming for a March 2013 date to head to Peru but felt that the timing of our book project and December return home would make that too difficult. In addition, after talking with our head vet Brenda Kennedy - the more time we are able to give a heads-up to her vet team the better our turnout will be. All that said, we are now looking at July 2013 as our return time frame to Huanchaco & Trujillo, Peru.

Just like our last trip down in July 2011, we are looking at teaming up again with Remote Area Medical's (RAM) vet team as well as one or two of our personal vet contacts in Portland. Our vision for 2013 is a return to our original trip in 2010 where our hope is to also work on improving the local shelter in Huachaquito along with the spay and neuter work. Last July during our visit we made a stop at the shelter and saw that our work had held up well and made a huge difference but that additional improvements were still needed.

We're looking forward to this coming July with much excitement. As soon as we have a set date (likely a 5-6 day stint) we'll make you all aware of it!

As always, we really appreciate your support. If you ever have any questions about our work, our plans, or just want to say "hello" - you can always feel free to contact us at or call us 503-341-2390.

Best to you all.
