While visiting Iquitos, Peru, a tourist, Laura saw the suffering of a stray dog in Iquitos and shared her picture on social media.....The next day I received a message and photos from Manuela Rodrigues, Executive Director of Amazon CARES. THEY HAD THE DOG!!!!!!!

"I’ve never been a big believer in miracles, but sometimes they really do happen when you least expect it. When I was in Iquitos I saw so many homeless dog & cats.  Their coats were filthy, some were very thin and they always seemed to have such grief and sadness in their eyes. I came across one dog that stood out from the rest. She was curled up under a trailer. Her body was so shrunken from hunger that her skin hung loosely. Most of her fur was gone and almost all of her skin was raw and sore from mange. Her eyes were closed and she continuously rubbed at her ear with her paw. "

FIRST WE RESCUED NION:

Thank you generous supporters for rescuing Nion, who is healthy & healthy, & awaiting his furever family!  Click below to see him before and after! This is Nion's story, but also the story of THOUSANDS of dogs & cats we rescue!

Nion lived under a bench in the Plaza Roja in San Juan, a neighborhood in Iquitos. Our friend, Georgina, saw him everyday at 6 AM.  She eventually gained his trust so that she could rub his head on her morning walks.  Until he disappeared.  When she saw him again his hair was knotted and pulling at the skin, and there were oozing sores covering his body. He wouldn't let her approach him.

Georgina told Amazon Cares about Nion, and we sent Junior right away.  Georgina's eyes filled with tears as nobody else was willing to help Nion.  Within 15 minutes he was in our care.  Nion hid under his bench.  He wouldn't raise his head or make eye contact, but Junior coaxed hungry Nion out with food. Tufts of white hair were attached to the scabs covering his malnourished body.  Other spots were raw and bloody.  He was riddled with parasites.  His tail resembled that of a reptile.  His teeth and gums were bloodied from scraping food off the concrete.

This is the story of Nion, but it is also the story of Paloma, Forest, Aida, Simon, Fluffy, Esteban and Charlie - a story many of you already know.  Share Nion's story-- because our charity is suffering and we NEED donations to survive. For your safety and to prevent fraud, make sure that you are actually donating to Amazon CARES through our official Crowdrise page or through PayPal!

Thank you for your support!
