Introducing Abbie Mood - Combining her passions to make a difference!

Amazon CARES is happy to welcome Abbie Mood to the blog team as the new Blog Editor. Be sure to subscribe to our blog so you don't miss a thing!

Born in Delaware, Abbie now lives in Colorado after spending a few years in Southern California after college. She first learned about Amazon CARES on Facebook, and when asked about why she wants to work with Amazon CARES, Abbie explained, "I've always been an animal lover and writer, and now that I'm a dog trainer, too, I thought putting all of these passions together might allow me to help Amazon CARES from a distance!"

Abbie currently shares her home with two rescue dogs (Daisy & Sadie), two rescued guinea pigs (Ellie & Baxter), and two rats (Nellie & Ruby). Abbie enjoys traveling, volunteering, reading, rock climbing, running, and hiking, especially with her dogs.

Abbie explains that what inspires her to help animals is simple to understand. "I have a deep love for animals and their well-being. The more we can educate people about animals and our relationship with them, the better the world will be for all of us." She goes on to add, "over the time I've been following Amazon CARES, I have seen the great work that has been done not just with the dogs, but with the people and the environment in Peru, and I am sure that even more great work is to come!"

We are also looking for contributors and post ideas, so if you are interested or have an idea, comment below!

A Rescue Dog's First Trip to the Salon!

Sol means sun.  Rescuers found her languishing in the sun in on a pile of trash. The poor girl was extremely disoriented, yet sensed she was finally safe, and she was genuinely grateful to be rescued!  She also has severe malnutrition, dehydration, mange and other common internal and external parasites. 

Today Sol received her first bath and haircut!  Obtaining quality grooming materials (and maintaining them) is an incredible challenge for the charity, but we always do our best to give our doggies the royal treatment.  Make a comment below and tell us what you think of her quick transformation!  

Now that she is under the experienced care of the Amazon CARES veterinary team she can heal, be spayed, and find a forever home.  Sol has a bright future ahead.

It has been a struggle to help locals accept former street dogs as family pets.  Yet, we are proud of our "Slow but Steady Progress in Peru."  This article from the Humane Society International features the work of Amazon CARES.
