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.

There were no humane societies for pets in the Amazon region of Peru until ten years ago when a visitor decided she had seen enough of sick, hungry and injured street dogs walking the streets and decided to do something about it. After a decade this is still one of the most altruistic and efficient charities with nearly 1 dollar of every 1 dollar going to help pets in need. By any measure of wise gift-giving, Amazon Cares is a charity worth considering and a donation to AC will make an amazing gift to that pet lover on your list who does not need another cat laser!

I have nothing but respect for Amazon Cares. First these people are not paid- they should be - but are not and when a doctor goes to help, that doctor is volunteering. Volunteers of all types are admirable, but a doctor taking leave of such a lucrative career to volunteer? I have trouble finding the words!

Second, the executives are not paid and these are often highly skilled and educated professionals doing what they do out of love- nothing more. And they work very hard.

One may say this is an impoverished area where AC is operating so attention should focus on people rather than pets. Seems reasonable, but pets HELP people! A downs syndrome affected girl made enormous progress through a dog received through Amazon Cares. Researchers working with AC also helped discover a kidney parasite further showing helping people or animals is not an either/or choice. And once I think these people have impressed me, they end up EXCEEDING my expectations. Amazon Cares is an incredible group and a wise choice for animal lovers and as for a donation in honor of those who care!

Where Amazon Cares serves, there is nothing similar. AC helps those domestic animals that were once written off as beyond help. The organization marries the best of idealism with action and has won over some extremely talented volunteers believing in and helping with its mission. I can not recommend this group strongly enough for an animal lover!

Such an important cause.
They are doing an amazing job but they need and deserve more support. So don't just sit back and do nothing.
Get involved anyway possible.

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 met Molly the creator of Amazon Cares several years ago at BlogPaws - a Social Media Conference for pet people and since then have been following her story. Amazon Cares reaches communities that have little access to any sort of veterinary care to help keep their animals healthy. They literally work in the Amazon to treat sick and injured animals in whatever ways they possibly can.

Molly works tirelessly to ensure she can help those who would otherwise be overlooked.

I have followed the work of Amazon Cares for several years. I began to follow them because of the great information provided through their twitter feed. I followed their blog because I have been to Lima, Peru and I saw the great need of help that animals need in the country. I believe that there is true love and vocation in everyone that participates in this organization. Amazon Cares makes a huge difference for the non human animals in Peru and also sets a great example for other organizations to follow.
Thank you for all you do Amazon Cares
