FAAN EVENTS-Help Keep Our Animals Safe

We know how to PAWTY!

If you’re an animal lover, save this page to meet up with and connect with Pawsome volunteers and donors who are working to create Ecuador’s most modern and sustainable animal shelter.

We have amazing community and educational programs and events focused on improving the lives of abused, abandoned and senior dogs in the Cuenca, Ecuador metropolitan area. The bonus is you will meet fellow animal lovers who are giving their time, talent and treasure to improve the lives of the animals in our care.

FAAN Wine to the Rescue!

Through Nov. 25th

Yes, your Best Friend could be Ecuador’s Best-Selling Wine Label this Holiday! Just submit a picture of your dog on your favorite social media or send us a photo at by November 25th and guess what? Your dog could have their own private label wine. How cool is that?

Our friends at Cosecha have generously partnered with us to present a Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon private FAAN label to benefit the building of FAAN’s new animal shelter this holiday season.

Amigo Secreto

Through Jan1, 2024

The Shelter Dogs of FAAN (Fundacion Familia Amor Animal) are asking for your help this Holiday Season with Amigo Secreto. Donate Food, Supplies or sponsor one of our dogs with your financial gift through January 1, 2023!

The need this holiday season has never been greater! Pawsome! We raised as a community the funds needed to purchase the land for the new and permanent animal shelter in Tarqui and now, we need to build the core shelter and move our dogs as soon as we can due to a recent landslide at the upper shelter. El Nina has placed our pups in serious jeopardy.

So, our year-end giving at the Foundation is focused on this emerging crisis as well as the daily care of our pups who need food, flea medicine, dog beds and dog blankets throughout the year.

In exchange for your support to this year’s Amigo Secreto, each of our dogs have made a special holiday card for you with their name and picture. Bonus: As a Secret Friend you will also be entered into a FAAN raffle that includes an overnight resort getaway and fun prizes donated by community businesses. We will hold the drawing for luck winners on January 6th.

Here’s How to Be a FAAN Secret Friend:

Make a Financial Gift to FAAN through January 1, 2023. Donations will support FAAN’s mission including care and support of the dogs and the building of new shelter. Be sure to write us at with your donation and notate “I’m a FAAN Secret Friend”

Did you miss Gala FAAN-TASTICA on October 7th?

Not to worry! You can still be a part of the PAW-TY by purchasing a ticket to the UNGALA GALA where any donation you give to FAAN (Fundacion Familia Amor Animal) is doubled in October by a generous and anonymous donor for building a new home for our dogs.

But There’s More! In October, you can do some early holiday shopping in our FAAN Pop-Up Store with Pawsome Deals from the Gala and your entire purchase will be a donation for the shelter that is also matched and doubled.

Pawsome Results Coming Soon!
