Help the animals of Huanchaco, Peru.

Animal Specialty Group is proud to once again support Caty Flowers in her efforts to save the stray animals in Peru.

Huanchaco is a rural town in Peru that recently experienced devastating floods caused by El Niño. Many have been left with fewer resources due to the natural disaster, especially the feral animals of the town. These animals already don’t have access to the treatments and veterinary services that are available here in the U.S., and the great impact of the floods only make their circumstances worse.

Help the animals of Huanchaco, Peru.From July 10th – July 14th, one of our veterinary technicians, Caty Flowers, will be embarking on a trip to help save these helpless animals of Huanchaco. Along with doctors, technicians, and assistants from all over the country, the team will be providing spay and neuter services to the animals, in collaboration with Global Giving and Los Perros Project, a non-profit organization dedicated to bettering the lives of stray dogs in Huanchaco, Peru.

About Caty Flowers

As a seasoned technician at Animal Specialty Group, Caty has been dedicated to helping animals domestically, and internationally, for over 15 years. She has gone on previous trips to Peru and Spain to help animals that needed it most, and would like to volunteer her time again this year. Although the organizations sponsoring the clinic would like to provide stipends for the trip, Caty has politely turned down the offer so that they can allocate that money to the animals.

Donations up to $1500 will be used toward her travel expenses, and any money raised beyond that will be promptly donated to Los Perros Project.
