This is such a amazing rescue! I am a veterinary student from the U.S. and volunteered with Amazon CARES for a week last year. The work they are doing is so important and is really making a difference. There are so many animals in need in the area they are doing their work. Every donation - large or small - makes a difference. I highly recommend this great non- profit rescue!

I read a story recently about this stray dog named Charlie on the The Dodo, and that's where I learned about Amazon Cares. What these guys are doing for animals in Peru is amazing. We need more people with a heart of gold like theirs! Great job guys!!! May all your furry friends live happily ever after!!!

Amazing caring people who are changing the lives of the animals they care for and educating the communities they serve. More organizations like this are needed for the neglected animals of the area.

The people behind the scene in this charity ; directors, volunteers, donors, are to be commended at the highest levels for all they do for humanity. We need these charities to receive large donations to be able to continue with the humanitarian work they do so very well.

The scenario in Iquitos, Peru is still in the danger zone for many animals who seriously deserve the help these folks can provide. But . . . they need donations. Please support!

Helping to transform the lives of the 100's of street dogs in Iquitos Peru by education in schools, sterilization clinics, and rehabilitating dogs for future adoptions. A truly needed nonprofit in this Amazon city and surrounding villages on the river!

The volunteers and everyone involved in Amazon CARES really do care and are making a huge difference. This isn't just a rescue, but an organization that is really educating people in the Iquitos area about proper animal care. It's an amazing group!

Amazon Cares goes into Peru and does what no one else, to my knowledge, has done. They help the animals who are in desperate need of care and educate the people to take better care of the animals. Veterinarians volunteer for these trips and bring their expertise with them.

Amazon Cares is like an oasis. It takes such good care of injured and neglected animals. It deserves all the support possible. It also works with the people of the Amazon to help them take better care of animals. It is heartening to know it exists.
