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 !!!
