I found out about Amazon Cares after a trip to Iquitos, and I learned they were the only ones in the region who were tackling the systemic problem of animal neglect. They are the most dedicated, hard working and passionate people, who do it truly because they love the animals they serve. They have been influential in changing public opinion in the community to be more positive towards dogs and cats and have provided critical services like spay and neuter programs, vet services, and so much more. Every dollar you send goes directly to the cause, which is something I really value about them. They stay in touch with updates, are extremely kind and personable, and easy to work with. Donating to them ensures our dollars go so much further because they are unique in the area doing critical work. I recommend them to anyone and Im happy to discuss at any time! Huge fans.

Amazon Cares is a real inspiration. This group is tackling an enormous problem in an area where their help is critically needed. Instead of turning away from the massive problem Amazon Cares is making big changes, teaching people and saving lives. I like to donate to this charity personally because I know that all the money is going directly to the lifesaving mission, and because it goes so much further in the Amazon. I've never seen such heartbreaking animal abuse and neglect, and it really is so wonderful to know that they are working hard where the issues are toughest.

The staff is kind, professional and responsive. I highly recommend them to anyone.

I found out about Amazon Cares while volunteering in Iquitos with another organization. I think it is a miracle what they have done not only with the health of the animals but changing peoples thoughts of caring for these animals.
Sincerely,

I found out that in Peru, homeless, starving and sick
dogs are ignored by the local people. How one can just walk by and not do anything to help these innocent victims is beyond comprehension.
AMAZON CARES is one of the
most reliable foreign charities I trust. R. O.

Amazon CARES is a great organization that carries out inspiring work to help animals in the Peruvian Amazon region, an organization run by proficient, intelligent, dedicated and deeply compassionate people. The work this tireless group does not only alleviates suffering for animals, but also has an extremely positive impact on the people who derive lots of benefits from interacting with the animals rescued by the organization and from seeing such compassion and effective advocacy in action.

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.
