Huanchaco Al Rescate is a Peruvian nonprofit organization with 10 years of rescuing dogs under its belt.

Since 2008, Huanchaco Al Rescate has been fighting to promote respect for the lives of street dogs in our lovely beach town of Huanchaco, Peru.

We rescue street dogs in need of medical attention, treat their illnesses, and care for them in our shelter. Once rehabilitated, we seek adoptive homes for them, and have rehomed dozens of former street dogs. We also run education and canine health campaigns, such as deworming and neutering drives, in the local community.
