Marone's Throwback Thursday!

This Throwback Thursday we'd like to honor one of the first dogs Amazon CARES ever helped, Marone.  CARES founder, Molly Mednikow, rescued Marone off the streets of Iquitos roughly ten years ago.

Molly and Marone.

Marone now lives in the United States with Molly, and lives a very pampered life!  In the past ten years, Amazon CARES has been able to help thousands of dogs just like Marone thanks to our supporters.

Please consider helping a dog like Marone today by making a small donation through PayPal (sponsor@amazoncares.org) or via Crowdrise.
