Many of the dogs at the project were previously living on the streets or severely mistreated by their owners. Rescued dogs live at a shelter until an adoptive home is found for them.  Unfortunately in Peru many people prefer to have male dogs, thus many of the female dogs living at the centre have not found adoptive homes as yet. 

All the dogs have been sterilised and have routine veterinary checks as well as deworming and vaccinations. 

The dogs at the project do change with new arrivals and adoptions so the list below is just an example of the dogs you may meet at the two sanctuaries.
Chicho
Chicho was rescued when only three months old. He had been dumped in a drain near a farm on the outlying suburbs of Cusco, and was found covered in ticks and fleas, and with a significant skin infection.

Because of this maltreatment, Chicho is very shy and doesn’t like to be touched by people he doesn’t know, so while it may take time to gain his trust, when you do you will have a new and very gentle friend.  
Guardian
Guardian is the grandfather of the shelter at 16 years old! He was brought to the rescue centre after being found extremelly sick on the streets of Cusco, where his age, poor living conditions and diet had left him with pneumonia and rickets.

When he was brought to the shelter he slept for four days straight, before beginning to walk and eat again.

He now is very happy and loves a good scratch on his back! He is kept separated from the other males, however, as he can get territorial and jealous. 
Chica
Chica was poisoned by her owner when she was two years old because when she was in heat she mated with the wrong dog.

A neighbour found Chica outside in agonising pain and brought her to the shelter where she had emergency surgery, during which her three puppies tragically died.

After a hard start to life, Chica now enjoys life at the shelter, although she doesn’t like loud noises, including thunder and fireworks, which make her tremble and weep. 
Sol de Oro
Sol de Oro was found on the road after being hit by a car at only two months old. She had eight fractures, and was unable to walk for nearly a year. However, due to medical care from the shelter, she is now fully recovered!

Today she is super playful and loves to run, jump, pull the tails of the other dogs at the shelter, and also sometimes play hide and seek from the other dogs.
