Emergencies happen DAILY at Amazon CARES

Hey all!

Things have been CRAZY here at Amazon CARES in Iquitos. Executive Director Manuela has been in Peru overseeing the operation of our no-kill animal shelter and full service veterinary clinic, and we have never been busier with the number of cases coming in. We are also continuously running campaigns such as our anti-mange and deworming campaign happening NOW! 

The reality is that every day here, animals come through our doors extremely sick, malnourished, and neglected. 

Meet Linda (named in honor of an amazing supporter, Linda Kane), the incredibly cute pup pictured below. Manuela found her in critical condition while passing by at a gas station- the dog was pregnant, and was experiencing dystocia, or trouble giving birth. Looking around the gas station, people passed by this sweet girl like she was not even there; it's as if she was dumped there and forgotten. Recognizing that this was a medical emergency, Manuela was able to get out Linda to the Amazon CARES clinic for prompt treatment.

Unfortunately, none of Linda's puppies survived, but because we found Linda when we did, we were able to spay her with no complications yesterday. She is doing well! She is receiving the TLC she deserves now. Without our help, Linda could have died that same day.

Thanks to our organization, many people in the Iquitos community care about the well-being of animals, whether owned or street dogs or cats. As you can see, we still have a long way to go to ensure dogs like Linda don't suffer unnecessarily in broad daylight. 

With YOUR help, we can continue our mission stronger than ever, determined to make this small part of the world a better place for animals and making a BIG difference for Linda, and the long list of other animals now in loving, caring hands. 

THANK YOU for your wonderful support to make rescues like this successful.

Help Us Strengthen Our #AnimalShelter!

Amazon CARES has exciting news! 

A generous supporter of our organization will MATCH all donations made for our fundraising campaign to repair and strengthen our beautiful animal shelter facility! Our shelter, located in the Amazon River Basin, has been in operation to rescue and re-home countless homeless and abandoned animals since 2004. The shelter has multiple community cat rooms and dog runs that are optimal for the health and well being of our cats and dogs being housed here. As you can imagine, harsh conditions, storm damage, and flooding makes it a challenge to keep up, and these facilities have been damaged a lot over time. Or shelter is in need of a major overhaul right now, and mending broken fences is a great place to start!

If we can gather $5,000 in donations, our anonymous donor will double this amount, making this a total of $10,000 to improve our facilities! This larger amount of money would be HUGE for us in making major improvements, including building an outdoor fenced in area for all our shelter dogs. 

Donate HERE today…and make TWICE the impact for animals!
