Project Description: Ccochahuasi Animal Santuario is a shelter for rescued animals. Although the project struggles financially, the coordinators maintain their willingness to rescue enslaved or mistreated animals. For example, the project now houses two pumas that were once drugged and used for entertainment in nightclubs in Lima. Other animals include condors, wildcats, llamas and alpacas. Due to a minimum of qualified staff, Ccochahuasi Animal Santuario is very dependent on its volunteers. An intermediate level of Spanish is necessary in order to adequately communicate with the staff.

 

Volunteer Responsibilities: Responsibilities within this project include working alongside the staff in caring for and maintaining the health of the rescued animals. You will learn a significant amount about the general care of mistreated animals as well as how to effectively treat the effects of their specific abuse. If you have professional experience, you may also work with the animals individually.
