Amici Cannis Animal Hospital and Foundation


Amici Cannis Animal Hospital & Foundation is a non-profit organization (registered 501c3 in the US and Non-profit in Ecuador) seeking funds to provide low cost sterilization and health care to animals in need in Cotacachi, Ecuador and surrounding communities. Our sterilization model will hopefully be repeated in other parts of Ecuador as well as other developing countries to help solve the street dog problem!

We are also a full service year round veterinary hospital and it is our commitment to provide quality medical care for the life of your pet and maintain an animal hospital with the most advanced technology and diagnostics in the Province of Imbabura. We offer low cost sterilization, wellness visits, medical consults, and surgical and dental services.

Client Testimonials


  • “Me da un gusto grande tengo 2 perritas son me corazón ya se donde llevarlas cuando necesiten.”


    Blanca Noguera
  • “The staff and volunteers care so much for the animals. I adopted a puppy from the clinic in January; they took her in and cared for her from a young age. Even though the clinic was very busy, they still made time to help us with our adoption and were thrilled that Fiora would have a new home. Keep up the amazing work, and thank you for all of your help! -Sending love from Canada”

  • “Un excelente servicio, agradezco mucho a la Clínica Amici Cannis y a la Dra. Marce Pineda, quien le operó a mi rescatadita “Rosita” una perrita ya viejita, pero es un ejemplo para todos, ya que a ella primero la encontré atropellada y en estado de gestación, tuvo unos tres lindos cachorritos, luego tuvo un tumor, que gracias a Dios fue intervenida a tiempo en Amici Cannis. Agradezco infinitamente a los voluntarios, y la Dra. Marce Pineda, representante de esta fundación amigos de los perros. Gracias por todo!!!”
