|Gustavo Cahuaza Shapiama (May 10, 1982 -February 2, 2013|
His sudden and accidental death took place at around 2 PM while he was at work for Amazon CARES. Amazon CARES has been cleared of any fault or negligence in Gustavo's tragic accident.
All those who knew Gustavo are mourning the death of our own "Pied Piper" of puppies, who followed him throughout his daily work routine. Volunteers and employees of Amazon CARES came together to cover his funeral expenses, and Amazon CARES has established a fund to help his family during this difficult time.
We honor Gustavo best by continuing to rescue animals in need. Gustavo applied daily treatments and preventative care for all animals awaiting adoption at Cabo Lopez. He also provided a loving, dignified and humane life to our "permanent residents" at the shelter that were not adoptable. His love for each animal ran so deep. And he is deeply missed, leaving a void in our hearts as we continue his life's work.
