I did not know what to expect from Spay Panama because the organization is relatively new and none of my colleagues have ever volunteered for Spay Panama before. However, it exceeded my expectations. The director of the program, the veterinarians, and other staff members are very kind and extremely accommodating. They make sure that you are well taken care of during your time of stay in Panama. Working in the clinic as well as the blitz can be physically exhausting, however, knowing that you have made a difference to decrease the animal population in low income areas is rewarding. The veterinarians make sure that you learn something, whether it be surgery, medicine, or client communication-related. After long days of hard work, the staff at Spay Panama make sure that you can explore the country and truly experience the wonderful culture.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
During the blitz, implement at least 10-15 minutes of break in between.
Would you volunteer for this group again?
