Amazon CARES Rescues Momma and Newborn Pups

Earlier this week, we rescued yet another momma dog at Amazon CARES. Momma "Tracy" named after our wonderful supporter, Tracy Temple, along with her five newborn puppies were found on the streets of Iquitos and rescued by some of our awesome volunteers. Our veterinary staff can now ensure that the momma and puppies are given the proper care and nutrition they need. They will all stay with us until they are ready to be adopted. Our clinic has a few rooms available for situations like these in which a quiet, clean area isolated from other dogs is required to house the puppies.

In the streets of Iquitos, it is all too common for young puppies to become ill with diseases that can be prevented. We will provide the puppies with a course of anti-parasitic medication to fight off intestinal parasites, along with routine vaccinations to prevent highly contagious viral diseases like Parvovirus and Distemper Virus. These diseases are especially spread among unvaccinated street animals in Peru. They can be fatal even with treatment, so it is super important that to be proactive in preventing them. Additionally, both Tracy and the pups will be spayed and neutered to prevent future litters.

We can't wait to watch our newest additions grow into healthy, happy pups and find forever, loving homes. As a no-kill animal rescue, we see so many dogs just like Tracy and her puppies come to us, and it is our mission to provide veterinary care and shelter to every animal in need. Consider making a donation to help us provide the necessary care to momma dog Tracy, her puppies, and other dogs in need. Help us help more dogs!
