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.

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!!

Our stables are located in an National Park in Panama City, Panama. The accessibility to the parks affords a dumping ground for unwanted cats/kittens. Many whom wonder into the stable area searching for food. Spay Panama has helped us implement an ongoing TNR (trap, neuter and release) program to catch the recent influx of feral cats. The doctors taught us how to arm the traps as well as provided much insight in how to catch these feral cats. Spay graciously loaned us the traps and with their help we easily caught 8 cats/kittens that had not previously been neutered. Our ongoing effort keeps the area from being overpopulated yet allowing us to have the added value of the rodent control that the cats provide. Aside from TNR, Spay provides emergency care for any ailments that the cats acquire. We have been involved in ongoing TNR for 12 years and with Spay Panama's help have been able to control the population in an environment that would otherwise certainly become overpopulated. I have personally seen the abandoned animal population noticeably decrease over the years due to Spay's continual hard work and efforts. They are truly and amazing organization and benefit to the Panama.

I first became familiar with Spay Panama 10 years ago, we had found several cats were told to take them to there to get Spayed/Neuter. Since then, we have continually donated to the organization. This organization is amazing!! Their efforts are tireless and through the years we have seen a continual decline in homeless and stray animals on the streets of Panama. Spay Panama is 100% comitted to the animals working 24/7 to save lives via spay/neuter, medical treatment or even trapping / picking up. 100% of the donations go to the animals. Panamá is blessed to have this group of people working in their country.

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.

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.
