Boquete Dog Camp

Boquete Dog Camp Logo

The Boquete Dog Camp is an excellent place for volunteers to contribute to the local canine community. Javier and Magaly, a couple from Peru, animal rescuers, vegetarians, and animal lovers, have established a large property as a no-kill shelter for the dogs of Boquete. They rescue abandoned and abused dogs, educate the local families about responsible pet care, and rehabilitate dogs to be ready for adoption into their “forever homes”.  To help cover daily expenses, they offer affordable boarding services and doggie day care and training. They average around 35-45 dogs at one time at the facility.

DOG CAMP:

  • Rescuing abandoned and abused dogs
  • Rehabilitating dogs and puppies
  • Educating local families and schoolchildren
  • Adopting into ‘forever homes’
