If you do study veterinary medicine, love dogs and want to help in Peru, you can do an internship at an animal shelter in Cusco. At the animal shelter project you treat the sick dogs, feed the animals, clean the shelters, and play with them. The shelter mainly takes care of dogs that have been rescued from the streets. Our partner organization gives shelter to approximately 50 dogs that receive food and care. There are two staff currently working at the shelter on a daily basis. There is no need to have a high level of Spanish, as project managers can speak English. The only requirement is that you MUST love taking care of animals!
