*** They asked - We answered *** Year-end Fundraising campaign - sterilization clinics at 5 schools
Our Education Outreach team has been visiting rural elementary schools in the Boquete area to work with the students and teachers on how to love and care for their pets and the benefits of sterilization. At the end of one class, Josefa raised her hand and asked, “How can we get our animals to the clinic? We have no transportation.” The administrator of the school immediately asked us to do a sterilization clinic in the school itself! We answered! We took our clinic to the school and sterilized almost 100 dogs and cats!
Five more schools are asking us to set up clinics at their schools. We want to answer, YES! And, with your help we can! Our goal is to sterilize at least 100 animals at each of these schools in 2024. This will prevent hundreds of unwanted births and reduce greatly the potential suffering of both animals and their owners.
How do we do that? We raise $20,000.00 to cover the costs of equipment, supplies, transportation and veterinary staff for these clinics. The cost to sterilize each animal is $40.00.
They asked – and we can answer with your help! Together we can make a difference in so many ways!
Educational Outreach Program
We are working to enhance the Boquete-area students’ educational experience by providing classes on pet care, animal maintenance, and sterilization. We will also expand their access to reading books, read aloud to the students and by setting up school animal sterilization clinics at the schools, near the students’ homes.
We have 2 main needs:
Volunteers: we'd like to have 1 to 4 volunteers for each school so we can nurture and grow the experience for the children throughout the school year. There are many ways you can help, and Spanish skills are not needed.
Financial: we are actively fundraising to be able to buy books and supplies for the Animales presentations, create bookcases and reading corners in classrooms, and to fund the Amigos de Animales school sterilization clinics. Our goal is to raise $10,000.

Our next clinic is scheduled for Sunday January 28, 2024.

Starting in January 2022 we increased our prices to $20 for a dog and $10 for a cat.

Homemade quilt fundraiser
This amazing quilt was lovingly made by Sarah Zink, a master quilter and wonderful supporter of Amigos de Animales. Congratulations to our winner: Kathryn Ashline!
Thank you to Sarah and all who donated! We raised over $1,300!
We held our Casino Night fundraiser on Saturday, June 10th. It was a great night of fun, games and prizes!
Thanks to everyone who attended and who donated. And a special thanks to Carol Cardinale Santana for her tireless efforts on these fundraisers. We raised over $1,300.
We have made gift certificates in the denomination of $10 and $20, the cost of an individual sterilization for a cat or a dog. Do you have a friend or neighbor or worker who has an animal needing to be sterilized? Please tell them that the procedure will make their animals safer and free them from the worry of the related illnesses or injuries that might ensue with cat or dog fights.
These certificates are an easy way to help. They are available at the Animales table at the BCP Tuesday Market or at our clinics.
PLEASE, help us feed local Dogs and Cats..
There are so many local families struggling this past year. Since the pandemic started, we have been purchasing dog and cat food at a cost of about $1,300 per month. We have been distributing this food to local families through the government and our collectors. We delivered over 14,000 pounds of pet food in 2021, and more than 17,000 pounds in 2022. Our main requirement is that all animals must be sterilized. We raised $15,594 in 2022, and our goal is $15,000 for 2023. Any donation is helpful. Thank you. Donate here
Pleasures of Panamá Fundraiser
We raised $27,245 on our annual "non-raffle" fundraiser! We charge only $20 per dog and $10 per cat. Our costs are over $25 per animal - for a clinic of 250 we are short by over $3,000, so we rely on fundraisers and donations to make up the difference.
Thank you to all who donated and to our wonderful prize sponsors! See more information here

A big thanks to SPCA International for a $3,000 grant toward our Food Program. Since 2012 we have received $19,500 in grants from SPCAI plus two shipments of veterinary supplies and drugs.
Volunteer Training Video
In January 2022 we held a Training session via Zoom for New and Returning Volunteers. The meeting mainly covered the process that an animal goes through as it travels through the clinic, from Registration all the way to Recovery and going home safely. Please watch the video here.
