Mission: Spay Panama aims to stop the misery and unnecessary death of homeless animals by controlling the overpopulation of dogs and cats through an intensive sterilization program. This is achieved by education, and by offering affordable spay/neuter services to low-income guardians, rescuers and feeders.
Results: We have sterilzed over 28,000 animals in Panama (June 2010)
Target demographics: Stray dogs and feral cats as well as pets from rescuers and low income guardians.
Direct beneficiaries per year: Thousands of dogs and cats
Geographic areas served: Panama
Programs: Operations are done at the clinic every Wednesday and Saturday, as well at blitzes (on site) to reach remote communities.
Before I joined the board to SPAYes USA in 2008, I was just an animal lover looking for help for the animals near my Grandmother's home in Santiago, Veraguas. I researched non-profits, and discovered Spay Panama. Pat, director of Spay Panama, responded to my email quickly, for plea to help the less fortunate animals. I was invited to volunteer at a blitz, and witnessed first hand the wonderful work that Spay Panama is doing to change the lives of MANY dogs and cats, and guardians. The Spay Team is a fast, smooth, oiled machine, that does not miss a beat. The organization is VERY organized, dedicated, and "The Best." After I joined the board, I travel there through out the year from Georgia, USA, and am always excited for an off-site Blitz, and clinic volunteering. There is alot of hard work involved, but the reward is knowing you have changed a life in this world! I love this group, and witnessed first hand that this is a true NON-PROFIT.
