I am both a "client served" and a donor. I first discovered Amazon CARES when I was visiting my sister in Iquitos, Peru. We are from the United States, but she was there for 3 years working on Malaria research for her pH D. I am a huge animal lover and was absolutely shocked at the condition of many of the animals living in the streets of Iquitos. After enjoying lunch at a local restaurant we stepped outside to find a pathetic creature on the sidewalk. It was a tiny, mangy, starving, shivering little cat. I think this was the last straw for me and I burst into tears right then and there. That convinced my sister that we must do something for this little cat, but she insisted that I not pick it up because of the mange. We ran home and fetched a towel and relocated the cat (he didn't get far). We easily captured the immobile being and brought him to the Amazon CARES clinic. The wonderful volunteers at the clinic quickly fixed him up for us and we brought him home. He soon became a beautiful, healthy cat of at least twice his original size that we named Pepito. He was adopted by a friend of my sister's. So this is the story of how Amazon CARES touched my life and the life of a little cat who wouldn't have survived otherwise. I have been a donor ever since.
