  • Description


    I am starting a small shelter for street dogs, currently I have modest 9 and I would like this project to grow much more and that is why I would like to start receiving help from volunteers so that one day I will have the ability to save more animal lives. The opportunity that I offer you is very beautiful and at the same time interesting, since I would not only be dedicated to the care of animals, but also to their education and bio-construction projects (construction of fences to bring more animals to my property, construction of houses for dogs, etc.), for which I am open to listening to ingenious proposals from the volunteers themselves. Another very nice and interesting project for the volunteers would be to go around the nearby towns collecting food scraps from the restaurants, in order to feed my dogs without having to use a lot of money ... Finally, there are normal tasks that volunteers would also have to do at least one day a week, things to keep the house clean and tidy.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    My farm is located in an Andean town with local people who can teach you about Peruvian culture. Besides, I, being Peruvian, can also teach them a lot about my culture and my language.

  • Help


    I need help for different tasks: going out to the nearby places to collect food for the dogs from my shelter, building new houses for them, using wood and simple materials, bathing the dogs and cutting their hair, spending time with the new puppies and educating them , cleaning their little houses ... I also need help to cook and keep the house-farm always clean and tidy. In addition, I have a very large garden where I plant some vegetables and a lot of potatoes, I also need help to always keep it clean of weeds, and to sow and harvest when the time is right (I use many of these potatoes for cooking and feeding the dogs and for us too).

    What else ...

    It is very easy and cheap to get transportation from the city to my house-farm and vice versa. It is also easy to buy fruits, vegetables and all the necessary things in the stores near my house. Volunteers in their spare time can visit nearby tourist sites, Inca ruins, and Andean communities.
