Heather's story

I went on a vacation in 2014 to Ecuador with my husband, after learning of the devastating situation of thousands of unowned, roaming, starving street dogs in the country, we came home to Colorado determined to make a difference in Ecuador! Amici Cannis USA was founded in 2016 to be a fundraising platform for our non-profit hospital in Ecuador. We are an official 501c3 in the US in good standing. I am the director of this non-profit and was the founding veterinarian of the hospital. I used to own a wonderful small animal veterinary hospital in Colorado but have since officially retired and moved to Ecuador to follow my passion of helping the homeless pet population in Cotacachi Ecuador and helping the poor pet owning families in the indigenous communities surrounding the town. I have volunteered my veterinary skills and business experience to running this foundation in Ecuador since November of 2017. We make a difference not only in the lives and welfare of the animals in our communities but also the the families health, well being and understanding about animal ownership. The work we do here is so impactful and rewarding!
