TOP TEN AWARD: Dr. Luis Baselly Cueva
I continue to receive wonderful comments from our volunteers about our highly skilled Veterinarian, Luis Baselly Cueva. For over seven months, Luis has served as the sole veterinarian for Amazon CARES in Peru. That means, few days off, no vacation days, no sick days. We hope to add to our staff soon so that Luis can obtain some relief from his hard work. The Amazon CARES clinic is open 8 AM - 8 PM with a three hour siesta between 1-4 PM.
During our spay/neuter campaigns, Luis must work without a day off. Yet he manages to do so with a smile!
Luis truly loves our cause and the philosophies we promote. I am writing today so that Luis knows that he is one of my heroes for his dedication to CARES and multiple animal causes.
An AmazonCARES employee has never received this honor, and all are worthy. Today I am awarding Luis one of our Top 10 Activists of the Year Award. Here is a list of previous honorees.
On a personal note Luis, I officially apologize for ever having complained about your aftershave.
Congratulations and thank you for your hard work!
