#Kittens Are Always in Season, but our #NoKill Charity Never Turns Any #Animal Away

Kitten season is approaching!

While many of the animal rescues and shelters are overflowing with kittens in the United States, overpopulation is even more of a concern in Iquitos, Peru, where resources are scarce. Year round, it is extremely difficult to prevent cats from creating more litters, continuing the cycle of homeless and sick cats living in the streets. To make matters worse, boxes and even bags of unwanted kittens are left at our doorstep for us to take responsibility for, as we are the only non-profit animal rescue in the Amazon. As you know, we will NEVER turn animals in need away, despite our extremely limited resources in this very remote region of the country. Our efforts focus on rescuing, rehoming, and managing the feral cat population through trap, neuter, and release campaigns. 

Last year alone, we were able to spay and neuter over a hundred cats through our feral cat campaigns. In addition, hundreds of owned pets are fixed and provided with necessary veterinary care. Locals have noticed a significant decrease in the amount of sick, unfixed cats in local markets and city

squares. We have more campaigns happening this year too, including one happening right now in memory of our dear friend, Bill Grimes.   

If we can continue our efforts in Iquitos, Peru by caring for not only owned companion animals, but also street animals, we can continue to make a huge impact on animals and a community in need. 

Our programs run ENTIRELY on donations, and every gift to us is directly used for the animals. The more donations we receive, the more animals we are able to rescue! To support our feral cat campaigns, make a donation HERE.
