We're all Smiling! Eva & Spotty Find Forever Families!

Puppy Eva has been adopted by Enos!

It's always an exciting day when one of our shelter animals finds a loving home!  Today two of our fabulous canine friends were adopted!  Peru Coordinator Marjorie Tutiven Abreu is pictured with Enos and puppy Eva! 

Eva is a very special puppy, indeed!  She is part of a litter of abandoned puppies that we rescued, and she was lovingly given the name Eva in honor of of Eva Catalina, a longtime supporter of Amazon Community Animal Rescue!

Adriana fell in love with Manchas on Facebook.  "Manchas," means "Spotty."   

Adriana Andrade met "Manchas" at our shelter!
All of our pets are adopted out for a nominal fee (less than $10 US), and adopters are vetted through an adoption process.  Animals are up-to-date on all vaccines and health treatments.  Manchas is spayed, and Eva will return to be spayed in a few short months!

Adopters receive our signature red collar and red leash.* 

In years past we conducted home visits and adoption follow-ups, and we are excited to resume these important activities to ensure the well being of our rescue animals.

Weekend #AnimalRescue in #Peru w/ great #photos!

Written by Amazon Cares Peru Coordinator Marjorie Tutiven Abreu

Seeking shelter from the blazing sun.
Dr. Edwin Inga, M.V.
The Amazon CARES team rescued two playful and loving dogs over the weekend.  Thank you to Noely Escarcena of Huellas de Rescate (Rescue Paws)!  When she asked for our help, we did not hesitate to take them in and treat them for free!  

The two dogs are happy to feel safe!
Dr. Edwin accompanied Saulo and me to see the dogs.  Amazon CARES proudly employs a licensed Medical Veterinarian, Dr. Edwin Inga.  In this remote region, many "Pseudo-Vets" practice despite not having a veterinary degree.  Dr. Inga checked the two animals, and we took them to our soon-to-be opened veterinary clinic for further treatment.  Mission Accomplished!

Portrait of a Beloved Pet Hero. Thanks @BZTAT for donating proceeds to #AmazonCARES!

Marron & Marilyn
Portrait of an Unassuming and Beloved Hero.
10% of proceeds from Premiere Pet Portrait Paintings ordered before 4/30/16 will be donated to Amazon Cares.

Dogs can be heroes just by being there when we need them. Some dogs, however, do more than simply “be there”. In the case of Marron (left), her presence inspired a movement that brought real change to a community in Peru.
Rescued off the streets of Iquitos, Peru, Marron became the co-founder for the Amazon CARES charity that has rescued countless other stray animals in the region. Capturing the heart of her human companion, Marron inspired an international effort to bring improved quality of life to animals in the region. It has been no small effort, but it has been a successful one.
Marron: 2003 - March 2016
Sadly, Marron went to the Rainbow Bridge on March 4, 2016. It was my honor and pleasure to paint her portrait with her pal Marilyn, another rescued pup from Peru.
In honor of Marron, BZTAT will donate 10% of all March and April Premiere Contemporary Custom Pet Portrait Painting orders to Amazon CARES. This is a great idea of a Mother's Day gift - It should be all about celebrating a Mom, Grandma, Godmother, Aunt, and all the moms in your life!  And don't forget the countless Mom's to four-legged creatures!
Feel free to contact BZTAT to discuss your order.
