Our Holiday Promise: Lifetime Homes for Shelter Animals!

Chester Before
Amazon Community Animal Rescue, Education & Safety prides ourselves on taking in abandoned street dogs and restoring them to health and finding them happy, loving homes.  Amazon CARES is 100% dedicated to the no-kill philosophy. *

Chester Now
Nearly every dog we rescue would be euthanized by an American shelter, even a no-kill shelter.

Yet the dogs we rescue almost always have treatable conditions such as severe mange, skin, ear and eye infections, malnutrition and parasites.  Treatment may take many months, but the results are amazing.

Scott has a home for life!
Scott, above, has not had an easy life, and we were forced to amputate one leg following a traffic accident.  Dogs like Scott have a forever home at the spacious jungle shelter where he is not confined to a kennel!

This holiday season please don't forget how many animals we can rescue for just a small donation!  Please continue supporting us!  One very easy and FREE way to save animals is by utilizing GoodSearch and GoodShop, featuring all of your favorite retailers.  Happy Holidays from everyone at Amazon CARES!

* We have written about our no-kill philosophy in previous blogs "Princess Chose Us:  True Meaning of 'No-Kill;" and "The True Meaning of 'No-Kill' Part II" which discusses PETA's controversial position on the no-kill movement.

Amazon Community Animal Rescue, Education & Safety (Amazon CARES) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit in the USA and a nationally registered ONG in Peru.  Read our Mission Statement here.

Help Amazon CARES on #GivingTuesday!

It's that time of year again - Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday. And now a chance to give back with #GivingTuesday on Tuesday, December 2nd.

What is #GivingTuesday? 
On Tuesday, December 2, 2014, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give. It’s a simple idea. Just find a way for your family, your community, your company or your organization to come together to give something more. Then tell everyone you can about how you are giving. Join us and be a part of a global celebration of a new tradition of generosity.
If you are feeling generous for #GivingTuesday, please consider a donation to Amazon CARES. There is no better time to donate than now, because Amazon CARES is really struggling due to lack of funding. The money you donate will go towards supporting the animals that are currently in our care. Any amount would be so greatly appreciated!

To support Amazon CARES' mission of better health and living conditions for all living beings in the Peruvian Amazon region, donate via PayPal here or email Amazon CARES is a 501(c) 3 tax-exempt charity.

Introducing Abbie Mood - Combining her passions to make a difference!

Amazon CARES is happy to welcome Abbie Mood to the blog team as the new Blog Editor. Be sure to subscribe to our blog so you don't miss a thing!

Born in Delaware, Abbie now lives in Colorado after spending a few years in Southern California after college. She first learned about Amazon CARES on Facebook, and when asked about why she wants to work with Amazon CARES, Abbie explained, "I've always been an animal lover and writer, and now that I'm a dog trainer, too, I thought putting all of these passions together might allow me to help Amazon CARES from a distance!"

Abbie currently shares her home with two rescue dogs (Daisy & Sadie), two rescued guinea pigs (Ellie & Baxter), and two rats (Nellie & Ruby). Abbie enjoys traveling, volunteering, reading, rock climbing, running, and hiking, especially with her dogs.

Abbie explains that what inspires her to help animals is simple to understand. "I have a deep love for animals and their well-being. The more we can educate people about animals and our relationship with them, the better the world will be for all of us." She goes on to add, "over the time I've been following Amazon CARES, I have seen the great work that has been done not just with the dogs, but with the people and the environment in Peru, and I am sure that even more great work is to come!"
