I would like to announce the brand new site for the AWARE Shelter in Guatemala. We are online as for the 1st. of October 2001.

The AWARE shelter at Hound Heights (Sumpango, Sacatepequez) is a No-Kill shelter for the rescue and rehabilitation of abused and abandoned domestic animals in Guatemala. The mistreatment and abandonment of domestic animals is a chronic problem in Guatemala. At the Shelter, the animals are cured of any illness from which they may be suffering (most commonly mange and malnutrition), given all necessary vaccinations, socialized with others of their kind and with humans, and put up for adoption. It is AWARE’s policy to spay/neuter all the animals that come to us.

AWARE is funded through donations, membership subscriptions, and fund-raising events. As well as the Shelter, we run free or low-cost spay/neuter and rabies vaccination clinics throughout Guatemala. We also run school visits to help raise the level of animal welfare, pet care, and environmental awareness amongst young people in this country.

If you need more information or plan a trip to Guatemala please don't hesitate to contact us and pay us a visit!!
