Animals have rights too! At Amazoonico we firmly believe this statement, and make it our mission to care for wild animals who have been rescued from atrocities such as the illegal pet trade. We do our best to provide the optimal care for our residents, and whenever possible release them back into their natural habitat. If you love animals as much as we do, then volunteering at Amazoonico may be a great option for you! Please help us care for these beautiful creatures and give them the best lives possible.
