Amazon CARES is dependent on donations from individuals and companies. These funds go very far in an underdeveloped nation like Peru. I am jumping for joy at the generosity of i Love Dogs, Inc.

Amazon Community Animal Rescue, Education and Safety (Amazon CARES) and i Love Dogs, Inc. announce a new collaboration that will benefit animals in one of the most remote areas of the world.

Torrance, Calif.-based dog vitamin & supplement manufacturer i Love Dogs, Inc. contributed more than $1,000, making it a Platinum Sponsor of Amazon CARES. Additionally, the company is donating a large amount of its famous i Love Dogs supplements, including Multivitamins, Green Tea, Glucosamine and Chondroitin, and Reishi. All of these products contain decaffeinated green tea and reishi mushroom, which provide the antioxidant and immune system support so vital to dogs in high-risk health situations.

“Amazon CARES is dependent on donations from individuals and companies. These funds go very far in an underdeveloped nation like Peru. I am jumping for joy at the generosity of i Love Dogs, Inc.,” stated CARES’ Founder and Director Molly Mednikow. “Malnourishment is a very serious issue with stray and owned dogs in the Amazon region, so we are eager to see the results of adding supplements to their diets. We are excited to provide them to our shelter dogs as well!”

This partnership has resulted in a new level of sponsorship for Amazon CARES. i Love Dogs, Inc. is the first individual trip sponsor for a Vets Abroad adventure. “Their banners will be flying from our clinic, our boat, and the jungle towns we serve during our April 10-24, 2011 trip,” says Mednikow.

Martha Smith, general manager of i Love Dogs, Inc., is equally enthusiastic: “We truly believe in Amazon CARES’ mission to help needy companion animals desperate for medical care, especially since promoting the health and happiness of dogs is our company’s primary purpose. As such, we are thrilled to be able to help defray the cost of equipment, supplies and other essential items for the Amazon CARES trip to Peru through our sponsorship.”

Social media outlets play an important role for both organizations. Smith states, “We are looking forward to helping Amazon CARES volunteer veterinarians spread the word about their mission to Peru via social media.” People are encouraged to follow the adventures of Amazon CARES and their veterinary volunteers--including Dr. Patrick Mahaney of West Hollywood, Calif., Dr. Jessica Vogelsang of San Diego, Calif., and Dr. Amanda Brown of Philadelphia, Penn.--through updates provided by both organizations.

Exclusive content about the trip will be provided on the i Love Dogs website (http://www.ilovedogs.com), Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/iLoveDogsInc) and Twitter accounts (@iLoveDogsInc, @FindAVet and @troyjunior). Mednikow added that frequent updates will also appear on the CARES blog at http://www.amazoncares.blogspot.com and on its popular Twitter account (@AmazonCares).
