Since Amazon CARES was founded in 2004, we have been working daily to minimize dogs and cats overpopulation, and lessen the needless suffering of many street dogs and cats in Peru’s Amazon Region.
A beautiful white cat that I have named Polyester, in memory of the grand kitty of Amazon CARES supporter, Suzanne Elkins, stole a tourist’s heart. The tourist, Maria, rescued Polyester and first took her to a regular Vet Clinic because she had a wound inside her mouth, broken teeth and could not eat or drink, making her very weak and in pain. The doctor at this Vet Clinic examined her and told Maria that the best thing to do was to put her to sleep. So Maria decided to look for a second opinion and do anything possible to save Polyester's life.
She came to our clinic after some locals referred us. One of our doctors, Dr. Gustavo, examined Polyester, and explained to Maria that Polyester needed to go through a delicate surgery to remove couple teeth from the bottom jaw and also shaving the bone. As any surgery, it involved risks. The outcome was amazing! Not only Polyester can eat now on her own, but she is very healthy and ready to become a family member!
