About Us

We are a private organization created by cafe Mosaico, which aids shelters and other organizations in Ecuador, which rescue and foster animals in need.

 Since our creation in 2014,  Mican Project has rescued, neutered, and found homes for hundreds of abandoned dogs and cats in Ecuador.

Our Mission

We create projects to aid abandoned animals on the streets of Quito. Donations are used for neutering, food, transportation and medical care. The funds are raised through projects carried out with the support of sponsors who make various donations through our website.



Adoptions are managed through the shelters we support. If you are interested in adopting or fostering a dog or a cat, contact us at

What We Do

Neuter and Vaccinate

The generous funding we receive from our donors and sponsors primarily goes towards an essential cause: providing extensive support for neutering procedures for dogs housed in shelters. This crucial financial support allows us to carry out as many neutering operations as possible, aiding in controlling the population of dogs in shelters. Through these efforts, we aim to contribute significantly to the well-being and management of these sheltered dogs, ensuring their health and potentially improving their chances of finding loving forever homes.



We’re excited to extend our fostering program to passionate volunteers willing to open their hearts and homes to dogs in need. This initiative allows individuals to play a vital role in our mission by providing temporary care for dogs until they find their forever homes. By joining our fostering program, volunteers can offer these dogs a nurturing environment, love, and attention for a specified period. This crucial support not only helps us in caring for more dogs but also provides a valuable opportunity for these furry companions to experience a home setting, enhancing their socialization and readiness for adoption.

Adoption Awareness

At the heart of our mission lies a dedicated commitment to promoting adoption and raising awareness about the plight of homeless dogs. Through targeted campaigns, community engagement, and vibrant events, we strive to spotlight the joy and fulfillment that comes with adopting a rescued dog. By sharing compelling stories and success tales of adopted dogs finding loving homes, we aim to dispel myths and misconceptions surrounding shelter animals. Our efforts extend beyond mere advocacy; we actively collaborate with local communities, schools, and social media platforms to foster a culture of compassion and responsible pet ownership.
