Project Profile

Project description

The Callejeritos Dog shelter is run by a peruvian couple. They have been rescuing dogs for a very long time and nowadays take care of more than 125 dogs, cats and even a horse.

They rescue abused, mistreated and injured dogs from the street and try to save as many dogs as possible.

Unfortunately, in Peru not everyone takes care of their dogs, sometimes with and sometimes without bad intentions.

Therefore, this dog shelter also focuses on educating people about health and sterilization. They organize campaigns and try to inform the local community about how to take care of their dogs.
