Amazon Community Animal Rescue, Education & Safety 
April 2012
Please Save Our Shelter!

The Peruvian Amazon region is experiencing the worst flooding in decades.  The beautiful animal shelter that took years to build has been washed away.  We were forced to relocate 50 dogs to our jungle treatment building.  Large, small, healthy and infirm, all of these animals are stressed and living in overcrowded conditions.


Volunteers Lend a Hand.

Volunteers walk the dogs.
Volunteers walk dogs. The majority of land is flooded, but dogs are walked on higher ground.


Rebuilding on Higher Land. 
Thanks to generous donors and a emergency grant from the  Fondation 30 millions d'Amis, we are able to build a smaller, emergency shelter.  Local government is donating wood to assist us in this project.

Journalists are Good Sports!

Dogs are temporarily housed in a small, crowded building. Despite the constant barking and cries for attention, these journalists reported the news.


Vet Volunteer Trips Planned.

Despite having to cancel the April trip , we look forward to trips in June, August and October.  The June trip will feature a week working in Iquitos and 4-5 days working in jungle communities.  Jungle accommodations provided by the Mapa Te Lodge.  Estimated cost is $675 per person.  For an application, please email


Adoptions Surge in April!  Community Listens to Our Plea for Help.

Due to massive overcrowding and the complete lack of shelter space, Amazon CARES has promoted adoptions very heavily.  We have had a record 13 adoptions so far this month!
