Cusco Dog Project

Cusco Dog Project Pack for a Purpose

Cusco Dog Project: Stray dogs are commonplace in Peru and this wonderful project provides a humane and long term solution to this ongoing problem. The main objective of the Peru Dog Rescue Shelter is to nurture the dogs back to health through receiving veterinary treatment at the hands of partner veterinarians, as well as loving care from veterinary students and volunteers. Whenever possible the animals from the dog shelter are re-homed with loving families. All of the dogs at the shelter are routinely vaccinated against rabies, distemper, parvovirus, coronavirus, hepatitis and leptospirosis. They are also de-wormed and de-flead approximately every 45 days. In addition dogs are neutered when funding is available to help control the population of unwanted dogs.
