#WordlessWednesday: #Pet Forget-Me-Nots #AdoptDontShop

In many animal shelters, it's not only about adopting out puppies and kittens in need of homes, but many adult dogs too! Don't overlook a loyal, trainable, and cuddle-worthy dog when you're on the look out for your next best friend. Gringo and Lucho are two of our middle-aged cuties with plenty of spunk and love left to share with their furever family. 

Interested in helping us provide more pets with access to shelter and veterinary care in Iquitos, Peru? Virtually “adopt” a precious dog or cat awaiting a new home by making a donation here!  

Special thanks to HyMMarketing and the team of IquitosCityGuide for donating time and their fabulous professional work with all the pictures taken for Amazon CARES!

Rehabilitation Progress Of Our Rescued Peruanita

Peruanita arriving to our clinic badly injured
Several weeks ago we took in a badly injured Peruvian Hairless Dog, whom we named "Peruanita". She was brought to our clinic by police officers, and it was apparent that she had been hit by a car. Unfortunately, this type of accident is very commonly seen in Iquitos, Peru. Due to her injuries, Peruanita sustained permanent damage to her spinal cord, causing paralysis of her hind legs. 
Lucerita and Peruanita's new wheelchair!

One of our amazing supporters, Lucerita Cordova, kindly donated a doggy wheelchair to us from one of her previous pets. Thanks to Lucerita, we hope to rehabilitate Peruanita and get her moving around in the near future! 

Hydrotherapy Sessions
Currently, we are are providing hydrotherapy to her in the Amazon River basin outside our animal shelter three times per week to help her regain strength. So far we have seen amazing progress- Peruanita has been able to walk a few steps on her own with her back legs after a few of our hydrotherapy sessions. While we may not have access to expensive equipment like a water treadmill, all of us at Amazon CARES do our very best to come up with new solutions to help every animal that walks through our doors that otherwise wouldn't have a chance. 

Check out the video showing a little bit of one of the hydrotherapy sessions of Peruanita!
Remember that any donation at all helps us keep our doors open to all animals in need. Thank you so much for your continued support! Donate Today!
