Reviews for Spay Panamas Animals Yes USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

As a veterinarian and volunteer, I can say that SpayPanama is doing positive things for pets and strays in Panama. Their facilities are nearly first-world standard, and the quality of low-cost surgery and care was better than expected. Help support this organization so that they may continue their important work in Central America.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

improving the welfare of pets and strays in Central America through mass sterilization

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

like to see some current statistics about the animal populations in and around Panama City to see what impact SpayPanama is truly having.
