At Amazon CARES, Adoption Matters

Did you know that Amazon CARES is the first and only no-kill animal rescue organization in Peru's Amazon River Basin?

Rescued Kittens in our Care
Being classified as a no-kill animal rescue means that we are dedicated to the care of every animal that walks through our doors- no matter what. Animals will never be euthanized due to a lack of space. This means that we rely heavily on our supporters and on the adoption process for our program to be a success.

Adoption gives the previously unwanted, sick, and injured animals of Iquitos a second chance to find a loving home. Our adoption-ready dogs and cats live happily in our jungle shelter, Cabo Lopez, until they find their perfect family. By adopting out animals that are spayed, neutered, vaccinated, and health checked by licensed veterinarians, we aim to promote awareness in animal welfare throughout the area. Spaying and neutering every adoptable animal ensures we break the reproductive cycle, preventing future unwanted litters. Vaccination and preventative medicine allows us to ensure that healthy, happy animals are re-released into the community, and are free of very common diseases like Parvovirus and Distemper virus. 
Getting more animals adopted into wonderful forever homes means that we can have more space available for incoming animals that need our help. We love seeing animals that have had a "ruff" start to life with happy endings! Here's some awesome pics of our recent adoptions:

  2. This is wonderful. I didn't realize it was the REAL Amazon. I thought this was related to the online retail giant. I'm so glad those kitties and pups have a loving place to go in Peru. Awesome!

  10. Great work you are doing. I used to live in Brazil and Chile, and visited Peru a few times. We had so many strays- we supported rescues and spay & neuter & education programs.

  16. This sounds like a fantastic organisation. I adopted my Yorkshire Terrier Elsie from the RSPCA and can honestly say it was the best thing I've ever done. She is such a wonderful dog and has brought such love and character into our family home. We all just adore her. More people should adopt animals as it really is such a magical and rewarding experience
