Who We Are

We are a group of like minded members of the alpaca community who are concerned about the welfare of the people, children and animals of Peru. This is a country that is home to the world’s largest population of alpacas. Unlike in the United States where veterinary care is routine, in Peru it is rare. The future of the industry there lies with the children and the health of the herds, these are the areas in which we hope to make a difference.
