The Experience

We are a new rescue centre (and the first one) for stray dogs in the Sacred Valley of the Incas in Peru. This is an exciting time to get involved with us. We need help with: the daily operation of the rescue centre, hosting tours of the shelter for visitors, the construction of the remaining unfinished pieces of our infrastructure, working with the local population to raise awareness in dog welfare.

We had a lovely time here! We stayed for a week and really enjoyed the daily tasks, feeding the dogs, cleaning up the poop, cuddling the dogs. We loved learning how to care for the dogs with injuries, learning physio therapy etc. We also helped with some gardening and structure work as the place fairly new and continually improving the site. We had a comfortable stay in a comfortable bed and use of a basic kitchen. Everyone was very friendly. We wish we could have stayed longer!

Pasamos días increíbles en el refugio, aprender a cuidar y relacionarse con los perros fue una de las aventuras más nutritivas. Fabri trabaja mucho y no lo pudimos ver tanto, pero siempre atento a cualquier necesidad. el refugio tiene lo necesario. El amor que te dan esos perros es único y hace la experiencia inolvidable! Gracias Alqo Llaqta! Volveríamos una y mil veces! los vamos a extrañar..

Fue una experiencia transformadora, intensa. Dar amor a manadas de perros requiere energía y servicio. Fabricio una persona increíble totalmente comprometido con los animales y la comunidad. Necesita seres que colaboren con ese mismo compromiso para seguir rescatando . Las montañas rodean el lugar, y urubamba es mágico.
