Manuela's Rainforest Update: You Decide Who Lives or Dies

Will You Please Help Them With a Donation Today?
The headline is dramatic, but it’s absolutely true. Every time I visit our shelter and clinic in Peru, I’m amazed by the huge strides we’ve made for homeless street animals, and yet how far we still have to go. So many precious lives to save…so little time and money.

I wish you could see the countless animals struggling on the streets. Their wasted bodies and hopeless eyes longing for relief. Some have lost hope, waiting, even hoping, for their inevitable death. We can't look away, thus we take in more animals than we can manage. We stretch our resources to their limit. Look into the faces of our rescued friends above. Some are happy and relaxed; others are cautious and nervous...with time and love, their emotional and physical wounds will heal. They are the lucky ones.
They won't survive with your donations and support, and all of our progress could easily disappear. Will you please donate today? We will never take your loyalty for granted. These animals truly need you in order to survive.

You can donate securely through PayPal at http:bit.ly/Donate2CARES or mail a check to Amazon CARES, PO Box 271344, Tampa, FL 33688. Every small donation makes a big difference!  

With undying gratitude,

Gary is named in honor of donor Gary Flint.


Gary Defeated Mange!

In the April "Rainforest Update," Executive Director Manuela Rodrigues wrote of a very common ailment in Iquitos, Peru, mange:

Many, many street animals suffer from mange. This inflammatory disease is caused by parasitic mites, and it affects a huge portion of the homeless pet population in Peru. 


Mange is a common reason for pet abandonment and animal cruelty, as people do not understand that the illness is treatable, and suffering animals often scare people.

Dogs are more likely to contract it, but cats suffer too. The symptoms are miserable— and include skin lesions, intense itching, and fur loss. These lesions often become infected.  The disease is highly contagious, and some infestations affect the immune system, we’re serious about keeping mange to a minimum."  
Gary and his sister are best friends!

Gary's new home!
We follow-up on adoptions to ensure the well being of our beloved animals.  Check out Gary in his new home!

Amazon Community Animal Rescue, Education & Safety has opened our doors to animals since 2004!  You can help more animals like Gary with a donation of any size!
