Amazon CARES Mission and Projects


Amazon Community Animal Rescue, Education & Safety (CARES) seeks better health and living conditions for ALL living beings of the Peruvian Amazon region. This includes appropriate care, respect, and protection from cruelty and neglect.


We are the first and only "Humane Society" in the entire Amazon region. In Iquitos, Peru we operate a modern veterinary clinic and in nearby Cabo Lopez we have a no-kill animal refuge. Our focus is on DOMESTIC animals.

In 2006 Founder and Director, Molly Mednikow, received the "Kindred Spirit" Award from the Doris Day Animal Foundation.

Please support our mission that, over 5 years, has made a significant impact on living conditions and health for animals AND humans in the poorest region of Peru, the Amazon region. All donations are tax deductible.
