Cotacachi, Ecuador

Funding for a Model Sustainable Veterinary Clinic and Animal Shelter focused initially on saving the lives of hundreds of starving street dogs in Cotacachi. The Trust supports this educational opportunity to promote a significant alternative to overpopulation, abuse, disease and starvation. Major emphasis is on the Spay & Neuter Clinic that opened in 2016 and has neutered 400 street dogs. The 2017 funding supported two new veterinary assistants focused on care for stray animals. The Clinic is the first of its kind in Ecuador and now expanding to other regions. (Multi-Year Recipient)
