Reviews for Spay Panamas Animals Yes USA
My time with Spay Panama was really great! I volunteered with a fellow vet student for three weeks. Everyone at Spay Panama made me feel very welcome and helped teach me many things during my time there (e.g. the quick spay method). I feel I gained many helpful skills that will prove useful for my future veterinary career and I have gained more confidence in my surgical skills. As well as getting veterinary experience in the clinic and at spay events, I got to experience different aspects of Panamanian culture and the team were great at showing us different parts and tourist sites in Panama City. Thanks to everyone who made my time at Spay Panama so wonderful.
I met Patricia Chan over 20 years ago and was struck by her intelligence, focus and readiness to work. Her work over the past 20 years has been phenomenal and tireless. She gives her all. She works with many people to end the suffering of strays and street animals in a number of ways, the most effective of which is the spay and neuter campaigns to cut the numbers of unwanted animals in Panama. There are other much larger and well-funded organizations that do far less than SPAY PANAMA, and we hope that people will choose to support SPAY PANAMA - which is right there, on the ground, in action all the time.
Dear Reader, I am W. Marvin Mackie D.V.M. retired. I wish to send my support to SpayPanama as an extremely worthy and effective organization that is and has been addressing pet over-population in Panama for 10 years. Their success and effectiveness is outstanding! Any way you can help their efforts benefits animals in so many ways. And there is great benefit for the owners and caretakers as well as the communities in which their work is done.
I had an amazing experience with Spay Panama as a vet student. I did over 100 cat castrations and was also taught the quick spay method in cats. The experience has really increased my confidence in these surgical procedures. As well as improving my surgical skills, everyone at Spay was really lovely and took me and the other vet student with me on excursions all over Panama City. Thank you for the experience!
I donate my professional services to Spay Panama. I feel that I am making a contribution to help the less fortunate animals because I see results.
Spay Panama helps me spay/neuter and vaccinate my rescued dogs before placing in loving homes.
I had the opportunity to observe and participate with the work done by spaypanama. This has helped tremendously to control the population for unwanted dogs and cats in the streets who suffer at times terrible cruelty. I've also adopted 4 cats from spaypanama, all spayed and neutered. Seeing them grow and play is an extremely gratifying feeling. We help them and they give us joy. A big standing ovation to Spaypanama's work.
Its great to know there are people who care for animals. For example in Panama, it was not until now that there is a noticeable percentage of people who are fond of cats so because of this many cats were victims of maltreatment. Now there's some hope for our human-defenseless furry friends. I personally had the pleasant experience of adopting my cat when he was only a kitten that had been rescued from the streets and was in a life-threatening physical state. The team was very helpful and cared for him until he was fully recovered. And today we can look at him at home every day smiling and thinking how far he's come thanks to SpayPanama who saved his life.
SpayPanama´s work throughout the Republic of Panama is remarkable. I am sincerely glad to collaborate as a donor with such a reputable organization. One can sense that the team is genuinely committed to its mission and vision. Most important, their operations are financially transparent and linked to a solid work plan which is monitored and evaluated constantly. A truly exemplary nonprofit, that is making a great difference serving the community in this public health matter. Hats off to their team of dedicated professionals and volunteers. Keep up the great work!
It broke my heart to see dogs run over on the side of the roads or dogs with no home starving. We adopted a three legged abused dog from Spay Panama. From the beginning, Penny has been a blessing. People say to us nonsense like, how wonderful it is that we took a three legged dog in. NO!! WE are the ones that are the grateful ones! Penny is wonder full in every way. Daily we watch her growing in confidence and although she has never known anything but brutality and cruelty from humans, she greets everyone with her tail wagging waiting for a pet. The people in our building call her, "Love on Three Legs." Don't make the mistake of passing over the not so pretty or handicapped dogs, you will be rewarded with a loyal,loving and devoted family member.
