We are building a spay/neuter clinic in Lima.
Our services will be low-cost to free.
We will be able to research and monitor zoonotic disease from this location as well.
We are conducting a dog census in Lomo de Corvina, Lima. This is a pueblo joven (shantytown) to the south of the city. In neighborhoods like this, it is entirely possible that the dogs outnumber the humans, but nobody seems to know for sure. To the best of our knowledge, no one has done a survey of this sort in Peru, much less in a pueblo joven.
We won’t just be gathering numbers, either. How do people feel about their dogs and cats? Do they get vaccinated for infectious diseases? Those dogs in the street, feeding off of the garbage–do they go back home at night, or are they feral?
These are just a few of the questions we will be attempting to answer.
On the human side, we will be giving work and training to our Peruvian partners.
