A Day at the Clinic
On the last Sunday of every month (except November and December) Amigos de Animales holds spay/neuter clinics. Since 2005, working in Boquete and the surrounding areas, we have sterilized over 15,000 animals. This has been accomplished with support from local and regional vets as well as vets who come here from the US to donate their time and expertise to our clinics.
Besides sterilization, the animals receive anti-parasitic medication, vitamin shots, pain medication and antibiotics on an as-needed basis. We have animal collectors in several areas who bring animals from their neighborhoods every month to the clinics, and we have set up transportation so animals can be brought to the clinics with their owners.
When we first began the sterilization clinics, most of our clients were Americans who had adopted street animals. Now, we have 85-90% Panamanians who have come to understand the value of sterilizing their pets. This represents an enormous cultural shift in attitude towards the care and maintenance of domestic animals here in Boquete and surrounding towns.
In 2013, Amigos de Animales acquired property in Alto Boquete on which We built our own facility. Work began in August of 2014 and we are now in our new home (see above map).
