Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Stray Animal Project is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to the education and the prevention of cruelty to animals. The purpose is to fund neuter/spay programs and to provide education for responsible pet ownership.

We are a fully donation-based organization that works with vets in Peru to spay/neuter animals from low-income families, strays, and animals living in shelters (they are run by people with no government support so they always struggle with funds for food, meds, etc.). In other words, we focus on animals that otherwise won’t be fixed.

We have 2 main capabilities:
1) A strong partnership with different animal associations, vets, and animal hospital in Peru called “campaign executor,” or someone in Peru who can organize and manage the ground operations for a campaign. The executor first helps us determine a location and the type of campaign that is best for that particular area. Next, the executor recruits veterinarians who are willing to perform low-cost procedures.

and 2) A team in the US with varied skills and talents who share dedication to save stray animals in Peru, provide economic relief to low-income families with pets, and improve public health in vulnerable areas.

To date we have neutered & spayed 2012 animals in different cities of Peru.

Long term impact: Different associations calculate the number of puppies and kittens that one female’s offspring can produce. These calculations vary but even taking the most conservative ones we are excited to report that we’ve already prevented +5M animals from being born and suffering on the streets in the next 7 years.
