The article discusses Amazon CARES' Animals Have Rights campaign, which encourages individuals to anonymously monitor and report violence towards animals. Witnesses of abuse or neglect towards both domestic and wild animals are asked to report the incident to local authorities or to Amazon CARES so that corrective action may be taken.
Peru Director Bruno Antoine explains in the article that Amazon CARES is "pushing an agreement with the State Bar of Loreto, such as the creation of a commission of lawyers responsible for processing complaints presented by the affected and move them to the competent authorities. So CARES becomes an intermediary between the complainants and the authorities that manage and provide solutions to complaints about such crimes and misdemeanors."

The article goes on to urge citizens of Loreto to take animal abuse seriously and to always report it to the appropriate authorities. "Many times we become aware that some people do cruel and ruthless acts against animals and we are filled with anger at feeling powerless over such acts; this is because we know that there are laws and procedures that protect wild and domestic animals. In this sense, we must understand abuse as being any event, act or omission of the human being that can cause pain or suffering, affecting animal welfare, endangering the animal's life, or seriously affecting your health, as well as labor exploitation, are considered acts of cruelty and maltreatment."
