The foundation was founded in 1984 in Quito and is focused on the protection of animals and the improving of the relationship between the Ecuadorian population and the animals. The aims are to remove the picture of animals as objects, to rescue them from suffer, abuse and hunger and to convey them to families for adoption. Besides affordable medicine assistance and sterilization to control the population growth, education, communication and sensitization for the protection and treatment of animals are very important issues and form the daily working process of the Foundation. The Foundation works under international standards and follows the recommendation of ICAM (International Companion Animal Management).
