“We are excited to see how our efforts are making a difference in Peru and the United States. Our company was founded on socially conscious principles and we feel it is our duty to support organizations with similar goals. Because our alpaca dog sweater line has been a success, it makes sense for our focus to be on dog shelters and other animal-oriented charities” said Meg McFarland, vice president of marketing and sales at Alpacifica.
