Our Current Project in Quito: Fundación Camino a Casa
It’s estimated that there are 400.000 stray dogs in Quito alone, if you take into consideration the fact that the city’s population is around two and a half million, that means that there’s a stray dog every six people. Unfortunately the government doesn’t do anything to tackle the problem, so it is up to to the civil society to come up with initiatives to helps the animals.
The team of guides in Quito support the “Camino a Casa Foundation”, a project that was born from the idealism and commitment of a local Quiteña, Cristina Calderón, who has managed to singlehandedly help up to 40 dogs in one month. However, even though she has over 60.000 followers on Facebook she really struggles to raise funds for the project. Our goal is to raise 10.000USD in 2018 through our Strawberry Promise initiative so that 125 dogs can be sterilized, as it is known that each she-dog can have up to 240 puppies in her lifetime.
Thanks for your generosity!
