Shelter Dogs Bathing in the Amazon Jungle


The best way to express our love for animals is to be with them. 

This is the philosophy of our amazing, dedicated volunteers in Iquitos, Peru. Every two weeks, a team of Amazon CARES volunteers make a special trip to our jungle shelter, Cabo Lopez, where all our adoption-ready dogs and cats awaiting their furrever homes live happily. During these visits, all the pups are walked to a nearby beach on the Amazon River where they are bathed, groomed, and given the extra attention they deserve. Bath time isn't so bad when you get to splash around in the Amazon River while you do it! Additionally, the dogs are treated with a topical medication called Fipronil, which is a preventative treatment for fleas and ticks- essential for living in the jungle as you might imagine.
It looks like a grand time! All are welcome to join and get in on some doggy lovin'.

THANK YOU to all the dedicated volunteers and supporters who show kindness and compassion to all animals, especially those that have been given a second chance at an animal shelter.
