We have a story and we want to share it with you.

For 8 years, FAAN (Fundacion Familia Amor Animal) has served as a sanctuary for abused, abandoned, neglected and senior dogs in the Cuenca, Ecuador metropolitan area with a temporary shelter located in Tarqui. There are currently over 150 dogs now in our care. FAAN is an Ecuadorian Non-Profit Organization dedicated to animal welfare and safety in the Cuenca metropolitan area.

Our vision is a city where all animals including those of pet owners, community dogs and street dogs are respected and cared for by the collective community.

This will include creation of Ecuador’s most modern and sustainable shelter for our most vulnerable dogs including senior and unadoptable dogs, side by side with community-based prevention and education strategies linked to improved animal welfare.
