Project Details

We are a new rescue centre (and the first one) for stray dogs in the Sacred Valley of the Incas in Peru. We are located in Urubamba, the main town in the valley. Join us!

HISTORY
Allqo Llaqta Rescue Centre was created in early 2018 in Urubamba, Peru, and is a project of the Organization "Asociación Para La Protección Animal Ambiental And Cultural Peru" (APPAAC Peru), which means Association for the Animal, Environmental and Cultural Protection of Peru, a registered non-profit organization in Peru (registration number N °: 2018 – 01141106). The name of the APPAAC project "Allqo LLaqta" are Quechua words (which is the language of the Incas) that translate as "Dog Land" in English.

Fabrizio Cartagena, the founder of the Association APPAAC PERU and founder of the Rescue Centre Allqo Llaqta, is a registered veterinarian and zoo technician (tuition number 5099 from the Veterinary Medical College of Peru).

MISSION
There are a lot of suffering, abused and injured street dogs roaming the streets and rural areas of the Sacred Valley. Allqo Llaqta was created to create humane and sustainable solutions to manage the stray overpopulation, to address their medical needs, to provide them with shelter and medical care with the goal of being adopted. Allqo Llaqta was also created to promote and support initiatives and actions that help raise awareness among the population for responsible ownership and respect for animals, especially in children and adolescents.

Social Impact

ANIMAL RESCUE
We identify dogs in a state of abandonment and street situation, capture them, then go through a process of evaluation of their health, determining age, sex, nutritional conditions, and possible diseases. We also neuter and spay them.

OUR WORK WITH SCHOOLS
A Friends of the Animals club is being developed as a pilot program in two primary schools in the city of Urubamba to create awareness and education about responsible pet ownership and respect for animal life in general. The club members will help with some activities at the Allqo Llaqta Rescue Centre such as walking the dogs, playing with them, bathing them, etc.

​TEMPORARY CRADLE PROGRAM
We have right now a Temporary Cradle Program. A very young puppy cannot go to the centre right away, so the idea is to have a local volunteer keep it for a short time until it is ready to go to the rescue centre, which means they have passed the quarantine time and they are healthy and vaccinated.

OLD FRIENDS PROGRAM
This program aims at getting senior dogs adopted by senior people. These older dogs do not need to exercise a lot, so they are a good company for them. Before adoption, the elderly dogs receive rehabilitation and physiotherapy to guarantee their quality of life.

CHILDREN AND DOGS PROGRAM
In this program, the volunteers give talks in schools and teach children about being responsible with pets.
