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 !!!

The people behind the scene in this charity ; directors, volunteers, donors, are to be commended at the highest levels for all they do for humanity. We need these charities to receive large donations to be able to continue with the humanitarian work they do so very well.

The scenario in Iquitos, Peru is still in the danger zone for many animals who seriously deserve the help these folks can provide. But . . . they need donations. Please support!
