With your help, Amici Cannis is improving the lives of countless dogs and cats through our spay and neuter work, street dog care, community education and adoptions at our fully-equipped Animal Hospital in Cotacachi, Ecuador.

Our work, however, is far from over.

There are countless dogs and cats in the over 37 small communities surrounding Cotacachi that suffer daily from hunger, disease and the endless cycle of reproduction. Thousands of puppies and kitties are born only to die before ever knowing the comfort and security of a loving home or a full bowl of food.

Your donation will help us help them to live longer, healthier lives free of fear, hunger and suffering.

Help Us Help Them!

For Less Than an Energy Drink Each Day You Can Help Us:

  • Prevent Starvation

  • Limit Reproduction through Sterilization

  • Improve Overall Health and Welfare

  • Reduce Diseases and Health Issues

  • Help Educate Local Communities on Proper Pet Care

With only a small recurring monthly donation, YOU can make a huge impact in the life of a dog or cat that is suffering needlessly. Help Us Help Them lead a better life.

All donations go directly to making a difference for Cotacachi’s dogs and cats.

Donate Equipment

We are always in need of new or gently used veterinary equipment and supplies. If you think you have something that may help the dogs and cats of Cotacachi or the surrounding communities, contact us at

Volunteer Opportunities

We have a fully trained staff, therefore we are not in need of regular volunteers. However, we occassionally seek volunteers for programs such as our bi-annual Census Count. Please refer to our “What Are We Up To” page where we post special projects that may need volunteers.

Fostering Dogs and Cats

We often have dogs and cats that need to be fostered after surgery. If you are willing or able to foster a dog or cat, please contact us, and we will have you complete an application form.
