Street Dog/Cat Waterproof Jacket Project
This IAFAF Project was created to provide donated waterproof jackets to the thousands of street dogs and also for the street 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 condition there, which suffer due to the freezing, 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 help improve their lives.
IAFAF is excited to have a new partnership in Peru with the Allqo Llaqta Rescue Centre.
Our Canadian IAFAF team will deliver all the donated waterproof jackets for the street dogs and cats in Cusco and surrounding Andean areas, alongside their great free spay/neuter, vaccine and veterinary care campaigns.
The original plan was to deliver the waterproof jackets for the street dogs and cats along with World Vets in Peru, but sadly these plans changed with the pandemic. But we are very honored that their team leader is now our liaison in Peru.
Contact us to give you details in how to make these jackets.
If you are in Peru, Mexico , Canada, US or elsewhere we can get the jackets go to the street cats and dogs in need.
We are taking donations of used (clean) or new cat/dog jackets, waterproof jackets, rain coats for dogs, and cat/dog sweaters, collars, small pet toys and vet surgery tools. As well, we are taking donations of light vinyl of good quality, neon safety stickers (used for construction workers) and more.
