On October 27, 2019, Amigos de Animales spayed or neutered 316 animals, 141 dogs and 175 cats with 7 vets working. This was a record day for us, the first time we had over 300 animals. But it is not just about the numbers, it is about the animals that will not be reproducing in the streets. It is about the families who we have reached and helped. It is about the students who we have met over the years and watched grow and mature and graduate. It is about our volunteers who return month after month and the new volunteers who are just beginning to work with us. It is about all of us who work every month and gain so much more than we give. It has been a great year for us in so many ways, we have seen what we can do and are looking forward to doing even more next year.
It is always fun to see how some people dress up their animals, even for the clinic. One person did not want her dog to go into surgery without her fancy dress on!
Thank you to everyone who has contributed food to our clinic. Jane Hampton, along with Cheryl Schmidt, always makes sure that everyone is well fed all day long. We thank everyone who brings food, and a special thanks to Heidi and Mike of Mike’s Global Grill. For years they have been donating pizzas to our clinic, something our vets look forward to every month.

On January 23, 2020, four local animal welfare groups - Amigos de Animales, Los Mininos Cat Sanctuary, Salvadores de Animales, and La Casa de los Animales - will come together to raise funds to sterilize local cats and provide care for homeless cats and kittens in the Boquete community. This will be a gala evening at Boulder 54 with auctioning of art works by local artists, thus supporting the local arts community while raising awareness of animal welfare, public health, and the role that all Boquete residents can play in raising the quality of life for humans and animals in our town.
