BENEFITING: AMAZON CARES

THE STORY:

In 2004, nobody wanted an animal shelter in their neighborhood.  We built a beautiful shelter 30 minutes away from the city, but jungle elements and flooding every few years are a constant challenge.  Finally, there is more compassion for animals, and people understand our mission.  We seek a new location and we must rebuild.  WE NEED YOUR HELP to make this vital move.  This will help us better care for our animals and increase adoptions!  See the video below of the 2012 flood.  The photos are from this week (June 1, 2015)

We are committed to the no-kill philosophy. Thus, our jungle shelter has lifetime residents, living in a beautiful, large, peaceful location. Our adoption rates continue to increase, yet animal abandonment keeps our shelter full. Now we our shelter is devastated by a flood! We are utilizing foster homes, although many dogs are living on wooden platforms in poor conditions. Amazon Community Animal Rescue, Education & Safety began in 2004, at a time when the majority of people in the remote Peruvian Amazon town of Iquitos and surrounding areas lacked awareness and respect for domestic animals. Through humane education, animal rescue, adoption, and free veterinary clinics, we have made significant changes to the culture in the region.
