Finding happy homes for abandoned dogs with Project Peru

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (NEWS 8) –  What a local couple saw on their surfing trip in Peru changed their lives for the better. 

Craig and Tami Schreiber were on their way to Peru when they saw stray dogs walking around the streets. "We noticed there was a lot of stray dogs problem in Peru," said Tami. "We just couldn't look away." 

In looking for assistance to help them, they worked with The Barking Lot Dog Rescue in San Diego to start Project Peru. The rescue provided medical supplies, antibiotics, flea and tick pills, dog clothing, leashes, beds, blankets and crates for the shelter.

Tamster and Craig's story from The Barking Lot post:

“On a surf vacation in Peru last month, we encountered a family of street dogs that followed us everywhere and gave us so much love. One of the street dogs, Pisco, had a big open wound on his leg and looked sick.  Unable to look away and go on with our vacation while this little dog suffered, we contacted a small dog rescue several hours away run by an amazing Peruvian woman Mariella. We were so moved by her compassion for us and for the 40 plus other street dogs that she cared for on such limited means that we promised not only to come back and bring our street dogs to San Diego to be temporary barkers at The Barking Lot, but that we would come back and help her with the 40 plus other street dogs permanently living in her modest shelter. 

With the amazing guidance of Stacy and The Barking Lot, we returned last week with a bunch of medical supplies, antibiotics, flea and tick pills, dog clothing, leashes, beds, blankets and crates for the shelter.  We built some necessary separations for the dogs, cleaned/organized the shelter and purchased a surplus of dog food. With the help of an amazing local vet Dr. Pepe Chu, we purchased and administered 40 plus vaccines to the street dogs in the shelter, who are now closer to coming to the US to be adopted through The Barking Lot. Most importantly, we brought back 4 street dogs to San Diego (Cusca, Inca, Luis Miguel & Sparky) including two of the original street dogs that changed our lives initially. 

We hope to go back to Peru soon and help to bring even more of these wonderful street dogs back to the US to be part of TBL Family.  We thank The Barking Lot and all of you for your support.”
