Santuario de bienestar animal SABIA

We have an espectacular view of the Cotopaxi volcano. A river is born in our hacienda and we wish to clean it and protect it. There are many roads around the area for running and hikking and we are in front of the route to the Super Volcán Chalupas. (4×4 and Motorbike) ¡¡¡If you are a lover of nature and dogs, this is the right place for you!!!

We are Fausto and Fausto's dad. We live at the hacienda. The volunteers are welcomed as part of our family. Our 120 doggies are all pretty friendly considering the fact that they all have been rescued from horrible conditions. Our house has an hacienda style with a chilled out vibe and a big chimney. We recently restored it. A big patch of our land was previously polluted from the plastic and trash of a failed rose farm project and now we have cleaned it up and want to develop eco friendly agriculture and lodging. Here, you are free to walk with as many doggies and for as long as you like. We have friends at Cotopaxi and Quilotoa and we love hiking there anytime we get a chance.

It has been quit an experience at Sabia! The first day we already found an abandoned puppy which we could luckily take home with us. After a week of giving him lots of food and love he really felt like home at Sabia and was everbody;s favorite. Also all the other are so sweet, if I could I would take them all home with me. The view of the Cotopaxi is amazing! And also the views you’ll have during the walks with the dogs are stunning.

If you love dogs and nature this is the place to be!

The Farm is really far away from the next town. The way there goes through unsafe territory with probability of being robbed. Fausto is welcoming and Kind but does not really care too much about you. The room he gave us was a little bit dirty and had no storage for clothing. Also bathroom and kitchen were untidy and dirty. We only stayed one night but the tasks were cleaning the dogcages. It seemd like this had not been done for a long time which made it a little disgusting. The farm is no more what it looks like on the internet! Fausto was injured and lost his wife which broke the system!

La experiencia en Sabia fue muy buena, ame trabajar con los perritos y poder contribuir en una labor tan bonita, Fausto es una excelente persona y me acogió muy bien en su casa. Aunque el refugio queda retirado de la ciudad, se puede realizar muchas actividades de conexionado con la naturaleza. Agradezco mucho la hospitalidad del anfitrión!

Una experiencia muy enriquecedora. Me llevo gratos recuerdos y aprendizajes de mi tiempo en el santuario. Fausto es un excelente ser humano, siempre abierto a escucharte y a guiarte en las actividades. Felicito a tan noble labor de cuidar de los que no tienen voz pero que nos llenan de tanto amor con sus mimos, juegos y apapachos.
