Join the Treasure Hunt for the Dogs of FAAN at Gala FAAN-TASTICA & the 2023 Auction Palooza


Save the Date and Grab your Tickets for Saturday, October 7th, 2023 for Cuenca’s Charity Event of the Year at Estancia Rosario
“GALA FAAN-TASTICA & Auction Palooza”

This is FAAN’s first call to Ecuador Businesses and individual community members wishing to help make Cuenca known as “The City the Cares” about Animal Welfare.

FAAN volunteers are now on a treasure hunt for the Gala’s Auction Palooza which will be the home stretch fundraiser for purchasing land and building Cuenca’s first US standard animal shelter.
Yes, our 150 + dogs are losing their current home at the end of the year, and we’ve been working night and day to make sure they have a new permanent sanctuary to go to.

For businesses, your venue or service will be promoted to our community both on the night of Gala FAAN-TASTICA and in pre and post-event promotions including our magazine.

For animal-loving community members, here’s your opportunity to help these abused, abandoned, and senior dogs at our shelter by designing a special experience or donating one of your treasures. From art and antiques to vacation homes, services, private dinners, jewelry, and gift baskets, we’re already amazed at Cuenca’s creativity and generosity.
Surprise us! All funds raised at the auction and gala will go directly to the building of the new shelter.

One of our FAAN-atic volunteers will be happy to work with you in designing a certificate or picking up your auction item.
