I learned about Amazon Cares for the first time thru my niece who is a Veterinarian.
I just have to Congratulate Amazon Cares' Team for the great job that they are doing in Iquitos. A truly needed organization in the area that is not only helping animals with care and medicines but also is giving them love and a safe place. Awesome Job Guys !!!

I found out online about your great rescue organization. I saw the work you did with a poor, sick , homeless dog that was on the brink on dying on the streets, and people would just keep on walking, ignoring his pain, suffering. Then two of your volunteers took him in, feed him, gave him water, and a safe place to rest his aching body.They took care of his mange riden skin, and nursed the puppy back to health, day after day, until the hopeless, sad animal recovered his life spark. It is such a labor of love, something St Francis Di Assisi would bless you for. So, yes I am happy to make a donation to such wonderful cause, within my modest means, I'll do it Everytime I can.

I just read a the story of the rescue of Ojitos, a beautiful dog that suffered terrible
neglect before 2 ladies from Amazon CARES stepped in. The story inspired me to
be a monthly donor. They are doing great work where the need is great. I encourage
others to give to this worthy organization.

I can't say enough about how fantastic this organization is! I am a veterinary medical student from the US and volunteered at this clinic for 3 weeks. Every single member of the team was wonderful to me and the experienced I gained far exceeded my expectations. Each animal is treated with the highest quality care and respect from the veterinary medical team, whether client-owned or surrendered from the street. I was lucky to have had the opportunity to learn from them. Thanks for everything!

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!!!

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!

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.
