#WordlessWednesday: Saving Grace from the streets

Amazon CARES rescues street dogs & cats and restores them to health! 
This is Grace. She was frightened and hiding underneath the vendor stalls of the busy Belén Market in Iquitos. She never ventured out from under the stall, as vendors would kick her, chasing her away from potential customers. Luckily Amazon CARES was conducting a spay/neuter campaign above the meat market! Our fearless vet assistant Harry caught her, but she was too sick for surgery. Instead of putting her back on the street we took her to our licensed veterinary clinic! We only employ licensed veterinarians and use quality medicines, and Grace received medical attention, but also the love & tenderness she had never known. A scared stray is now a happily adopted pet!
