In a few weeks I’ll be travelling to Iquitos, deep in the Peruvian Amazon, to volunteer with incredible charity AmazonCARES.org.
I’ll be mainly neutering dogs and cats to help control overpopulation, as well as treating routine health problems and also visiting local schools to talk with school-children about looking after pets.
AmazonCARES (which stands for Community Animal Rescue, Education and Safety) addresses vital topics important to a healthy community
environment in Peru’s remote Amazon region.
These topics include animal welfare, human health, domestic violence prevention, humane education, conservation, environmental issues, respect for wildlife in their natural habitat, safety, responsible pet ownership and assisted animal therapy.
I’ll be tweeting/blogging from Iquitos and writing a full report on my return.
