Asociación Huanchaco Esperanza Canina is an association based in Huanchaco, Peru, dedicated to rescuing and taking care of street dogs who have been abandoned, are sick, hurt or mistreated. Esperanza means ‘hope’ in Spanish and that’s what we want to give the dogs in our shelter.
The Esperanza Canina shelter has been there for a couple of years now. We just recently got registered as an official Asociación and starting to professionalize so we can help more and more dogs. Besides the shelter we help dogs in the streets when we can when they are in urgent need of help.
We are totally depending on donations and help of volunteers.
The sort of activities for volunteers are as follows.
- Taking care of the dogs (feeding them, socializing with them, general maintenance of the shelter). This is fun and rewarding and where we need most of the help
- Fundraising activities
- Helping with dog rescues
- Adoption initiatives
- Assisting with de-fleaing, de-worming and sterilization campaigns
