Give Back to Animals with GoodSearch!

By Shannon Sullivan

Supporting Amazon CARES has never been easier. With you can support our charity just by doing the things you already do, such as searching the internet, shopping online, and using your debit or credit card in your own town. With the holiday season fast approaching, now is a wonderful time to get signed up with Goodsearch and start giving back!

There are three easy ways to support Amazon CARES using Goodsearch.

1. Use as your search engine.

Goodsearch is a wonderful tool that allows supporters, like you, to donate to a charity without spending a dime. Goodsearch is a search engine powered by Yahoo. Every time you use Goodsearch about one penny is donated to Amazon CARES. It may not seem like much, but pennies can add up quickly! If only 1,000 of Amazon CARES’ supporters use Goodsearch twice a day, $7,300 in donations can be earned every year.

Using Goodsearch is simple! Go to and you’ll be asked to choose your cause. Select Amazon CARES, then get searching and watch as the pennies add up! Goodsearch keeps a running total of how much money your internet searches earn for Amazon CARES. Remember to bookmark the Goodsearch page!

Amazon CARES operates out of one of the most remote cities in the world. Iquitos, home of our animal clinic, is the largest city in the world that cannot be accessed by road. That means all supplies must be brought into the city by air or by boat. Our no-kill dog shelter is located a short distance down river from Iquitos in an area called Cabo Lopez.  We shelter cats at our in-town clinic!  See a gallery of our dogs at .
