Dog rescues in Ecuador are very common. The major cities have several and even some smaller areas have them. Some are operated by Ecuadorians, while others are run by expat volunteers.
If you would like to volunteer at a dog rescue, your best option is to message the local rescue and ask how you can get involved. Most have Facebook pages or Instagram accounts.
