Iquitos is suffering the ravages of the highest river water levels in the past 25 years.
Amazon CARES has mobilized volunteers in Iquitos, Peru. As the water crept closer toward our no-kill shelter, we began to heavily promote adoptions.
|Crowded Conditions for Animals|
Every single shelter animal was saved! In the absence of dry land, 50+ animals were forced to live together in a crowded building. Luckily, adoption figures for April have reached a record high of 18, alleviating some of the crowded conditions.
It is very heartbreaking to watch the total loss of our beautiful animal sanctuary, which we have added on to and fortified over many years.
