Amazon CARES - Community Animal Rescue, Education and Safety
April 7, 2013

In June of 2011 I went on the trip of a life time. I joined 4 others and we volunteered in Peru with Amazon Cares. Amazon Cares is an amazing group of people who do amazing things. We worked hard but we enjoyed every minute of it. We spent our very busy days doing spays and neuters on dogs and cats, treated them for parasites and gave some medical care. We also distributed important antiparasite medication to people in the remote villages. They educate the children about appropriate treatment of animals and fights for legislation to protect them. Amazon Cares does very important work in Peru. I think they are a great group of very dedicated people.

Amazon CARES - Community Animal Rescue, Education and Safety
October 31, 2012

I went to Iquitos, Peru as part of a group of volunteers from the veterinary hospital where I work. We worked side by side for 2 weeks with the Amazon Cares staff. They were very welcoming and fun to work with. I was so impressed by the things they were able to do with their limited funds and supplies. We were there to help with the spay/neuter portion of what they do but they do so much more. They educate the people, especially the children of the area on humane treatment of all animals and they fight for legal changes to protect the animals. They care about the animals and people of the area and strive to make things better for both. This was the most amazing experience I have ever had and I walked away feeling and knowing that we had done something good. It has been over a year since my trip and I still talk about it as if it were yesterday. I hope to someday be able to return and do it all again.
