Street Dog/Cat Waterproof
This IAFAF Project consist of providing donated waterproof jackets to the
thousands of street dogs and also cats, which roam the colonial Andean
city of Cusco, Peru. Cusco is located at 3,400 m (11,200 ft).
It is heartbreaking to see the street dogs there, which suffer due to the
freezing, humid and windy conditions of this Andean city. They sleep on
the rocky street floor and lack any shelter. It is common to see them
shivering since morning due to the extreme cold. During the night the
cold is unbearable. The local vendors and people feed them with scraps.
For this reason we created this project to improve their lives.
IAFAF is excited to have a new partnership in Cusco, Peru with the
Allqo Llaqta Rescue Centre to deliver by our own IAFAF Canadian volunteers,
the donated waterproof jackets for the street dogs and cats in Cusco and
surrounding Andean areas, alongside their free spay/neuter, vaccine and
their veterinary care campaigns.
Our original plans were to deliver the waterproof jackets for the street
animals with World Vets in Peru, but these plans changed with the pandemic,
but kindly their lider in Peru (now our liaison), got us in contact with ALRC.
Contact us to give you details in how to make these jackets.
If you are in Peru, Mexico , Canada, US or elsewhere we can make
the jackets arrive to the street cats and dogs in need.
We are taking donations of used or new dog jackets, waterproof jackets,
rain coats for dogs and cat/dog sweaters. As well we are taking donations
of light vinyl of good quality, neon stickers for human workers and more.
