who we are

Founded on 2012, Terranimal is a consultancy group devoted to the welfare of all  animals in Ecuador.  Our projects are based on the principle of an ethical treatment of all species while taking the country’s social realities into account.  Our work is enriched by local animal protection groups such as protection societies, public institutions related to animal welfare, private institutions promoting corporate social responsibility, and the public.

Our Mission

Terranimal aims to plan and execute projects to protect Ecuadorian animals by developing comprehensive programs that focus on solutions for instances where the mistreatment of animals also affects human health, the environmental crisis, poverty, and social injustice.

Our Vission and Values

We position ourselves as the leading organization in the development and successful execution of projects in favor of the wellbeing of animals in Ecuador. To achieve our goals, we endeavour to do honest work with kindness, respect, positivity, and proactivity. 

Our Objectives

  • To provide education on animal protection to different population groups of Ecuador through effective and innovative programs 
  • To engage in independent political discussions regarding animal protection issues in order to become an active participant in the decision making process. 
  • To plan and execute programs that have an impact on the national economy, so that ethical alternatives of rights and/or of well-being are generated when animals are involved in production processes. 
  • To plan and execute projects that make a direct impact on the well-being of all animals: urban, wild, and livestock.
