What We Do
PAWS works to improve the welfare of street dogs in the villages around Cusco, Peru. Most are owned, roaming dogs that spend their lives on the streets but are fed by their owners, often used as security dogs to protect property and sometimes to guard over livestock.
Our mission is to reduce the overpopulation of dogs through a sterilisation programme and improve their quality of life through vaccinations, health checks and educating the people in the villages. Using our mobile veterinary clinic, we can visit the dogs and provide healthcare and sterilisations where they live.
