I have been living in Panama for the last 9 years and was introduced to Spay Panama within the first month of living here. By that time I had already rescued 2 kittens and brought them to be sterilized at Spay Panama. While I was there,I saw a lot of kittens and cats that had been rescued and we re there looking for their forever homes. I went home with an additional kitten. I was just so touched by all the amazing work the volunteers do there and it was so obvious to see how much care they put into each animal there. I have since then become a volunteer for Spay Panama. They truly care about the well being of animals and about educating the people in Panama about the importance of sterilizing their pets. By volunteering at their clinics in my area, it is easy to see that their message is making a difference. I see a big increase in the amount of pets being brought to the clinics and I believe there are less stray sick animals on the beaches and roads. Spay Panama are an awesome group of people that really care about the health and happiness of animals.

My volunteer service at Spay/Panama proved to be more than rewarding. I was able to observe the care their staff takes into making the sterilization process ease with as minimum stress as possible for the owner and pet. A major factor in this experience was the great teamwork. Thank you, Spay/Panama for helping our furry friends!

I have been a volunteer at Spay Panama for 5 yrs and i can see the diference for the best that has done for the animals in Panama. I don't even want to think how many more animals would be in the streets without the great spay/ neuter program at a low cost that can reach people that otherwise could never be able to spay/ neuter their mascots plus the help given to all the rescue groups and the animals that live in the streets.
Another good thing that Spay need to be reconize is the contant teachings to make people aware of the needs of the animals and try to reduce animal abuse.
An organization like this deserves all the help posible to continue its great program.

Being an animal lover i picked Spay Panama to volunteer because after doing my research i found out that this organization is the one that has done and is doing the diference in improving the lives of the most vulberable animals ( the ones in the streets and the ones from low income families) by spaying/ neuter them and by doing that reducing pain and suffering , the birth of unwanted cats and dogs that most of them will end up having a miserable life.
I BELEIVE IN WHAT SPAY DOES AND I WANT TO BE A PART OF THIS.

Good morning
I rescue cats since 10 years in Panama and with the help of Spay Panama I was able to fix a lot of them because of their reasonable price. I have been involved also in raising money in our area. 3 clinics have been done until now and over 1000 animals sterilize. Nobody had never make a clinic in that area, people are so grateful to have the opportunity to fix their animal. They love them but don t have $150. to fix them. I m so grateful to all the team of Spay Panama for their dedicated work and love for animal.

One morning in May I was on a rush and my son ask me to bring him at the bus station. I said yes but was not happy. I went in my car and just back up without asking myself if one of my cats was under the car. And yes one was there. I broke his 2 back legs. I call Spay and they took me the same day. They put him prothesis and came back home and was able to walk. They are doing an incredible work. I m always amaze with the quality and the love those people have for the animals.

This experience was unlike anything else I've ever done. Spay Panama is an organization that is making a very visible difference in their community. All it takes is a short walk down the street to see the number of stray cats and dogs that have been sterilized thanks to this program. Both staff and volunteers come together every day and work very hard. As a foreign volunteer I felt very welcomed into the project and the community. As a veterinary student I was able to help with pre and post-operation procedures, as well as with surgeries as I gained experience.

It was amazing to see 100+ animals get sterilized in a normal day. While there are a lot of spay/neuter programs out there, working to this level of efficiency is rare. And despite being a low cost program, the safety and well being of all the animals that come through Spay Panama is taken very seriously.

Thanks Spay Panama for a great 2 weeks!

Spay Panama is an organization that has made a difference in not only the lives of countless animals but also the community. Their amazing and hard working staff and volunteers have managed to change how street animals are perceived in Panama. In my short time volunteering with them I managed to help out in the community and in their clinic, learn about animal health, diseases and surgery. This organization is truly making an impact.

Spay Panama's mission is to reduce the overpopulation of dogs and cats through a massive sterilization program throughout the territory of the Republic of Panama.
For me it is an honor as a volunteer to be able to help this noble mission and I urge everyone to join this cause for a better quality of life for animals.

Great project that definitely is making an impact in their community/country. Top notch professionals and volunteers pull off daily services and huge monthly/biweekly events for owners with low economic status or stray pets. Sterilization is an answer to the overpopulation of pets and this group does it better than anyone.
Kudos.

SpayPanama is one of the best places I volunteered at. Great organization that works so smart, every dime is being used in the best way. Not only they save hundreds of animals every week, they also raise awareness and prevent further uncontrollable births and abuse towards animals. The head of the organization is a great PR and business women that decided to dedicat 100% to animals and it is their gain. SpayPanama conpletely deserves the number one rating.

I have to say that it was a very nice experience to cooperate with SpayPanama. They take their job seriously and start taking action immediatley whenever necessary. They care so much about the animals they spay and rescue. Everyone should know about SpayPanama and if you are thinking about adopting a furry friend they will surely have a good well-cared for companion for you.

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.

I have been involved with Spay Panama for over 12 years. They are an amazing group. 100% percent of the donations go to help the animals. I see daily the results of their efforts in the noticeable decrease in population of homeless animals in the city of Panama. The doctors and volunteers work tirelessly day in and out.

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!!

Spay is the only non-profit in Panama that helps people with a difficult financial situation and homeless/abandoned animals to avoid over population and suffering by providing spay/neuter and health services at a very low cost which is key to enable people to continue to keep their pets healthy. I've been a volunteer at Spay for some years and I've learned a lot of valuable information to also help and guide others. Spay is also a key support in my endless work of helping suffering cats by always being available to provide treatment with a great sense of urgency, care and true love for animals. Their drive is to educate people and help animals and their passion inspires and enables me to continue this difficult journey. We need more of this in the world and governments to support this continuous and much needed project.

I am volunteer to another non-profit called Asociación Dejando Huellas. We rescue animals form the streets , put them into foster homes , give them medical treatment and through Spay Panama ,we close their reproductive system so they have a new life without suffering.

We are so thankful because we receive guidance , support and our animals are spayed to lower prices.

Spay Panama has done so much for the community with their clinics thoughtout the country.
