Donations and Sponsorships

Pilpintuwasi-Landing

Landing at Pilpintuwasi.

It costs more than $30,000 dollars per year to run Pilpintuwasi and Animal Orphanage, which is extremely high by Peruvian standards.

Although we are fortunate to be in such a beautiful environment, the isolated location of Padre Cocha means that the cost of purchasing is higher than other parts of Peru. Also, this total doesn’t include the refurbishment and medicine costs that crop up intermittently and also doesn’t allow for other improvements we may like to make.

We rely solely on the entrance fees and the generous donations of our visitors in order to provide this refuge. We are grateful for any contribution no matter how large or how small.

If you’re interested in supporting our work you can feed one of our animals for a day, offer a recurring monthly contribution, or fully sponsor one of our animals for a fixed time.

Thanks To All Of Our Donors

Map-Padre-Cocha

Feeding one of our animals for a day requires a relatively small contribution that should suit those on a tight budget, but really makes a difference to our work here. For this, you receive a huge thank you from us and, of course, the animal you’re feeding.

In return for a monthly contribution or  full sponsorship (supporting all the costs of one of our animals) we will send you updates throughout the duration of your commitment.

full sponsorship information.

If you are visiting the sanctuary we can accept cash or Paypal payments.

Once you sign up to sponsor an animal we will email you a link to make a single payment, or set up a recurring payment. Of course, you can cancel a recurring payment at any time.

Thank you from all the animals at Pilpintuwasi!
