On Sunday, February 15, the official dedication of our building took place.
It was a wonderful day, dedicated to the original volunteers of Amigos de Animales. Many of those volunteers are still with us and we were happy to have them there. We had a wonderful turnout, somewhere around 75 people came to celebrate with us. The blessing of the building was performed by Deacon Steve Mainero from Iglesia San Juan Bautista, the Catholic Church in Boquete.
The building is officially dedicated to Ruby McKenzie, our founder and most tireless volunteer.
This was a day of counting our blessings. We honored those who had the vision to make this happen, we honored all our volunteers, both past and present, and we looked toward the future that is represented by this beautiful building that is our new home.
