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 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.

Spay Panama is making a huge difference to lives and welfare of stray dogs and cats and those owned by low income families. They offer very affordable, they accept not just cash but also fruit and vegetables, for the sterilization. As an expat living in Panama I was shocked and horrified by the number of dogs hit by cars at the side of the highway. After 3 visits by Spay Panama to local community the number of street dogs was greatly reduced. There were very few dead dogs. As a local volunteer people would come up to me to ask when is the next clinic. They understood the benefits of sterilizing their pets. At the clinics you could see the love they had for their pets and how happy they were knowing there would be no more babies.
Spay Panama is amazing and Panama is very lucky to have such a dedicated person at Pat Chang and her fabulous support staff. I feel honoured to have been a volunteer with them.

SpayPanama has been doing incredible, life-changing work throughout Panama for several years now. They have a dedicated team of veterinarians, volunteers, and staff that truly care about making a difference for animals in the country. I have been volunteering with SpayPanama for a few years, and am seeing a difference not only in the number of animals on the street, but in the mindset of people and how they treat animals. People are learning the importance of sterilizing their pets, which will ultimately make a difference in the long run. I would highly recommend working with SpayPanama for anyone who has a passion for cats and dogs and who wants to make a direct impact on improving animals' lives.
