Reviews for Spay Panamas Animals Yes Usa

Rating: 5 stars  

Spay Panama is always willing to help stray animals in any way necessary. On multiple occasions I have brought stray cats or dogs in need of care. They are spayed/ neutered then expertly cared for until their condition improves. Spay Panama tirelessly cares for any animal off the street as long as it is spayed or neutered before it leaves. Spay Panama also cares for abandoned kittens and cats until they can be adopted. They are an amazing group!!

I have been a supporter of Spay Panamas for at least 10 years and have seen the fruits of their work. I have also adopted three dogs that they have spayed/neutered and treated.

Spay Panama is a well organized group of caring individuals in pro of the dogs and cats. I have been a witness since the start of the amazing work they accomplish in Panama. They help and support other cities and towns within Panama where stray dogs and cats have become an issue. I urge all organizations out there to support the work of Spay Panama.

I first became familiar with Spay Panama 10 years ago, we had found several cats were told to take them to there to get Spayed/Neuter. Since then, we have continually donated to the organization. This organization is amazing!! Their efforts are tireless and through the years we have seen a continual decline in homeless and stray animals on the streets of Panama. Spay Panama is 100% comitted to the animals working 24/7 to save lives via spay/neuter, medical treatment or even trapping / picking up. 100% of the donations go to the animals. Panamá is blessed to have this group of people working in their country.

I am a fourth year vet student and I went volunteering 1 week with a friend in Spay Panama and I met the most amazing volunteer and vet team there. Everybody was so welcoming and very passionated about animal care and about helping the community. I really enjoyed my time there. I did a lot of pre-op in the clinic: that involved the shaving, injections, scrubbing, emptying bladders. I had also the opportunity to do some surgeries, including approximately 15 male cats and 2 female cats. The vets are very patient and they supervise you if you need any help. I recommand to stay 2 weeks if you want to have time to do more surgeries. We also went on a blitz and we spayed and neutered 250 cats and dogs in a poor areas that day! It was really cool to see how these people care about their animals and want the best for them.

I am a 3rd year vet student from Canada and I traveled with three other classmates to volunteer for a week with Spay Panama. We had a great experience and were grateful for the generous hospitality and accommodation to ensure we learned veterinary skills as well as appreciation of Panamanian culture. The mentorship from other veterinarians was a highlight of the trip and we were excited to see how successful this well run and organized clinic was in Panama City and in surrounding communities. I would recommend volunteering with this organization for future veterinary students and new graduates as it is a supportive and enthusiastic environment to learn and develop confidence!

I have been living in Panama on and off for the past 2 years. When I first arrived I knew I wanted to make good use of my time, so I researched some of the different animal organisations. Although I had no previous experience of working with animals I was welcomed into Spay Panama as a volunteer.
I work primarily within the Pre-Op station, preparing the cats and dogs for surgery. This has given me the opportunity to perform tasks that were new to me and allowed me to have hands on experience with the animals. Spay Panama has a main clinic in the city centre, however, they reach out to communities by doing regular blitzes/street clinics and these blitzes are done with community involvement. The blitzes can involve intense, long hours in the sweltering heat but the feeling of elation (and exhaustion) at the end of the day is well worth it !! ( in one day that i was involved in, over 400 animals were spayed/neutered).
The boundless ambition and fundamental values of Spay Panama culminate in the contribution of reducing the number of stray cats and dogs in Panama, as well as aiding those in less than fortunate conditions.
I would highly recommend Spay Panama to anyone with a love of animals looking to get involved in purposeful work as a volunteer.
I have found the whole team of staff and volunteers organised, friendly and passionate and their team working skills are second to none.
When I leave and return to Scotland for good, I will leave with many joyful memories of great experiences. Added to that, friendships made and knowledge gained that will remain with me throughout my life. Volunteering has been a truly rewarding experience.

Spay Panama and the team in Panama City is incredible. We didn't know what to expect, but as soon as we arrived we were welcomed with open arms. The whole team showed nothing but patience and kindness towards the animals. As volunteers, the teaching we received was amazing. I would absolutely recommend Spay Panama to any future volunteers and donors as a place worthy of your help. It is an organization doing incredible things and I would love to continue work with Spay Panama again one day.
