Chiriqui Chapter of Spay Panama
Here in the highlands of Panamá, in March of 2006 Dorothy Atwater and a few helpful volunteers began a mission to end the suffering of dogs and cats - often homeless, starving, and diseased - and to help educate people that their pets have feelings and need love, proper food, shelter, and water. We primarily provide low-cost spaying and neutering to the less advantaged Panamanians. We ask $25 per dog and $15 per cat (which is my actual cost) but no one is turned away for inability to pay. For more information, articles, and pictures on the Chiriqui Chapter Spay/Neuter Campaign, please visit, www.spaypanama-chiriqui.org.

Spay Panama Newsletter Issue 3, 2013
Spay Panama’s goal is to end the suffering of unwanted animals. Concentrating on an intensive spay/neuter program, the unwanted animal population and need for expensive animal shelters can be greatly reduced.
60,000 animals have been spayed and neutered by Spay Panama in just 12 years! And those numbers are about to increase with a new (to us) Diablo Rojo, given to Spay Panama by President Martinelli to convert to a mobile spay clinic! In addition to clinics held in Panama City, spay blitzes are held around the entire country of Panama where low-income populations can not afford the services of veterinary clinics. Routine blitzes are held in areas such as San Miguelito, Araijan, and for World Animal Day, a 60 hour spay/neuter blitz that achived the goal of 1,317 animals in the East side of Panama.
The Diablo will require a complete renovation – mechanical for safety and efficiency, exterior paint, and interior update with equipment to allow vets to perform surgeries. At the recent Animaloton at Parque Omar the First Lady unexpectedly kicked off the Diablo fundraising campaign to renovate the clinic bus with a commitment of $2500. The mobile clinic is a dream come true for Founder Pat Chan of Spay Panama. The savings of having a clinic bus to transport equipment, vets and volunteers will save substantial money for Spay Panama which they can now use for direct animal care. General cost for spaying/neutering dogs is $25 and cats are $12, which is the actual cost for Spay Panama to perform the surgeries. In many locations, people cannot afford to pay for spaying and neutering, but NO one is ever turned away. Of course those monies must be found elsewhere to continue their mission and services. Spay Panama is a nonprofit 501 (c)3 organization supported by many volunteers, some who have been involved for years.
The spay program is funded by fees for services and donations from animal lovers around the world. Earlier this year 2 visitors from Switzerland sponsored a 2 day blitz at Isla Grande.
Spay Panama actually performs more of a public service than just spaying and neutering. As animal populations are kept under control there are less dog bites and health issues. Young people who volunteer with Spay Panama learn responsibility, respect for animals and may even find a future profession in animal care. Spay Panama always welcomes volunteers and there is a job for everyone. In addition to helping out with the animals and clinics there is often a need for other services in the office, with the website, education, cooking, artistic projects and fundraising events - volunteers do it all!
