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 !!!

This past 2012/2013 period has been a tough time for Amazon CARES. But even facing financial hardship , losing a dearest worker on an unfortunate accident, going through all sort of difficulties I am very happy to see that Amazon CARES never deviated from its goal and mission. We kept our work in Amazon (Peru) by taking care of those lovely animals we recued, worked hand to hand with Iquitos community not just saving dogs and cats, but also educating and promoting events.
I truly believe that on hard times is where we show who we really are and what are our strengh.

I would like to thank all of you for what you have been doing.

Regards
R.M.

I started working for Amazon CARES in 2008 as a volunteer and then in 2010 I joined as one of their employees and also Board Member. It has truly been a life changing experience to me. I have had the opportunity to watch the organization develop tremendously since then. Amazon CARES has provided me not only with a clear understanding of non-profit work, but also of how to make a difference in so many lives in the Peruvian Amazon. The leaders of the organization are very motivated, hard working and inspirational. Employees are lively and absolutely willing to engage in all types of activities with anyone who is committed to the work. The changes I have seem in the past 4 and half years are quite remarkable and I am so excited to be a part of the continual process of its growth. I consider myself lucky to be involved in such empowering, inspiring work.
