Almost Wordless Wednesday: Abandoned to Adopted!

I am thrilled to share some happy news!  On February 23, 2012 we arrived at the Amazon CARES Veterinary Clinic in Iquitos, Peru and encountered three dogs abandoned at our door.  The two black dogs were both missing an eye.  Two dogs were secured, and their former owner left a sheet behind for them to rest on.  The dog at the forefront of the picture was not tied to anything.  He remained with his friends on his own.  This dog was later named "Pilato."

 In mid-April, Pilato was adopted by Xiomara Honorio.

Yesterday, his new family posted this photo of him on Facebook, and commented on how much they loved him and he had become a new member of their family.


  1. What a happy ending to a sad story.

  2. Congratulations, Pilato! (He sure looks a lot like CindyLu!)

  3. Aww, he is so cute! I'm glad his family loves him so much. :)

  4. Thanks so much for your kind comments! Kim, Pilato does resemble CindyLu!
