At our Dog Care Program volunteers will work with the many stray dogs that live on the streets of Cusco. Our Shelter is just outside Cusco’s city and accommodates about 30 dogs that were living in extreme poor conditions, had been abandoned and were really sick.

The shelter gives home for dogs that had a hard life on the streets. And now have food and care. They are looked after by volunteers that organize the project and work, making sure they are all in good condition and well looked after. The work usually is in the mornings when cleaning, feeding and other works take place.

The project is made possible entirely by private contributions. The Shelter receives no local, state or federal funding and depend on the generosity of people like you to meet our annual operating budget.

This project requires volunteers who are innovative, motivated, and willing to take charge. Tasks may include networking with small organizations that would like to help the dogs, raising funds, location searching, and direct work with the dogs, like feeding, cleaning, taking care for sick dogs and a small help with constructions to make the living of the little ones a little better.

We will give you the equipment you will need for working, but during raining season (November to March) you may require to bring rubber boots so you can walk around the project easily and it is important that you bring adequate clothing as you will get a little dirty.
