We are Esperanza Canina!

Thank you for visiting the Gofundme page of Esperananza Canina.
Asociación Huanchaco Esperanza Canina is an association based in Huanchaco, Peru, dedicated to rescuing and taking care of street dogs which have been abandoned, are sick, hurt or mistreated.
Esperanza means ‘hope’ in Spanish and that’s what we want to give the 40+ dogs in our shelter. This is all being realized thanks to volunteers and donations.

if you are not able to come to Huanchaco but still want to help you can send us your donation via this site. All the money raised will go directly to the Asociation and is used for:
- Food
- Maintenance of the shelter
- Medical care: treatment of sick dogs, vaccinations, sterilizations etc.
Donations of any size are more then welcome!

A huge thanks from the dogs!

Dear friends of Esperanza Canina,
We have new donation options available now! We have updated the donation page on our website where it is now possible to donate via banktransfer(europe), ideal (for dutch donors), paypall and creditcard. also possible now are monthly donations (via creditcard and banktransfer (europe). This way your donation goes directly to the NGOs bank account instead of having to pay a fee to gofundme. 100% of your donation goes to the NGO registered in the netherlands, where we have "public benefit organization" status. this was issued by the Tax Office (Belastingdienst) meaning we do not pay tax (and dutch donors may deduct their gifts from their Dutch income tax).
The gofundme will be still open for a bit, but in case you would like to support us with a donation please do so via or website!
Muchisimas gracias as always!

Dear friends of Esperanza Canina,

Next to the Peruvian association we are now also registered as a NGO in The Netherlands under the name Stichting Esperanza Canina.
The Dutch NGO also has an official bank account where donations from now on will be transferred to. You can still donate via our Gofundme campaign, but also directly transfer donations to the bank account (which also means no fees!) This can be done as a one off or on monthly basis! Some of you are donating via gofunme on regular basis. we have now made it easier for you to do this. We have updated our Donate page on our website accordingly describing how you can donate and also what your donation can buy!
Our aim is to get as much monthly support as we can, because this helps us the most. Even a small monthly amount will help us a lot! Please visit our updated Donate page!
