  3. On Sunday, March 19th we were contacted by someone who found a very sickly, skinny dog wandering the streets in Los Naranjos. We named him Pluto and he was taken to a foster and a vet visit scheduled for the next morning. He was drinking Pedialyte during the night and we were very optimistic. Pluto tested positive for Distemper, and unfortunately, had to be put to sleep. Pluto was only about two months old. From the condition of this pup, it was apparent that he had not eaten for quite some time. This poor dog had a very rough and short life. Much of what we do can be emotionally draining and frustrating but we press on because we do feel we are making a difference in some small way. January and February were very costly months for us and has resulted in draining much of our financial resources (expenses exceeded donations by more than $1,700.00) and March is not looking any better. We can only carry on our work if we have the funds to do so. Please consider making a donation so that we can continue to help the animals in the Boquete and surrounding areas.

  4. There will be some kittens and two of the cats that were rescued from Volcan at the market tomorrow. If you remember, there were 30+ cats tied up to trees, branches, poles, etc. that have been removed from the residence. There were 23 rescued adult cats, and 7 kittens. Unfortunately, one managed to escape in the midst of the round up. A group in David has generously offered to house these cats until homes can be found. We are still in need of financial donations for this case. Your contributions so far have greatly contributed to getting these cats on the road to adoption, but more is needed. 10 will be attending this month’s clinic to be sterilized. 9 have been fixed so far, along with their snap shots done and vaccinations given……not to mention the cost for feeding so many animals.

  6. Hi everyone, Unfortunately, due to the lack of ticket sales, we have had to postpone this event. If you purchased a ticket and would like a refund, please present your ticket us at the Tuesday market. Otherwise, your ticket will still be honored when the event is re-scheduled (we are currently looking at some time in May). We apologize for this, but we could not justify holding this event with minimal ticket sales.

  8. With the help of a visiting volunteer, ARF is coordinating a few "touch training" sessions with a few people that would be willing to continue the practice with some of the ARF dogs that are currently being fostered. These animals are quite timid and shy, and need help coming out of their shells. What is “touch training?” The “touch” cue teaches dogs that an approaching hand is not a threat and therefore does not require a negative response. Many advanced behavioral issues can often be traced back to seemingly innocuous beginnings like a puppy reacting nervously to an outstretched hand or general human touch. The key to avoiding the escalation of such issues is to desensitize the dog to things that might be considered scary (such as human hands) as early as possible. Teaching the “Touch” cue is a great way of building that foundation and is a useful cue to teach both puppies and adult dogs. “Touch” is also a great confidence-building exercise and can be used to help all dogs accept the approach of a human hand. You would work with the dogs for 1 hour so. Our volunteer would like to find a small group of people that can do the training 3 more times before March 25. This is an excellent opportunity for people that have dogs at home they would also like to train. These will be simple sessions. None of the dogs you work with will are aggressive. She would like to try for 2pm this Saturday March 11. The location of the foster is on Volcancito Road.

  9. Hello everyone! For February, the amount of monthly donations was $2909.00 and expenses totaled $3817.00. Thank you to everyone who contributed! A special thank you goes out to our friend Steve who made a substantial donation, and Marian who held a fundraiser at La Villa to raise money for food purchases. In February 7 dogs and 1 cat found their forever home. We currently have 25 dogs and 8 cats in our care. If you have any friends or relatives looking for a pet, please direct them to our site or have them contact us, as we have many ready for adoption. Please consider fostering an animal if you are able to do so. We are in desperate need of temporary homes for the many animals that the community is alerting us to and are having a very difficult time keeping up. It is never our goal to turn away an animal in need, but we only have so many places to put these animals, and we need your help. When you foster an animal with ARF, we take care of all food and medical expenses – we just need you to provide a loving and protective environment. Bingo recap: After the unfortunate robbery at La Villa, we had to scramble to find an alternate location for our bingo. Thanks to Mike and Heidi at Mike’s Global Grill for offering their place at the last minute! Many participants commented that they liked the switch and also that they would like to see bingo held once a month. We will keep you updated on these developments. ARF Pancake Breakfast/Adoption Event-Sunday March 19th at the Animales Building 9:00am-11:00am. Here we go again! Our last event in October was very successful, so we are doing it again! $10 buys you a stack of pancakes, bacon, fruit, juice, coffee or tea and a chance to meet some of the fine animals we have loooking for a home. We will also be raffling off 2 spa inspired packages. Tickets can be purchased at the Tuesday market, Mailboxes Etc. and at the door if we don’t sell out. We also have our Hoedown coming up in April – keep your eyes and ears open for more details. Looking for a home Susie is a sweet and very smart little Panamanian Bird Dog, very rare we are certain. She is looking forward to finding her permanent home. Susie was rescued after giving birth to 10 pups. Wendy We happened to follow up on a call to visit a finca near Isla Verde one hour after this pretty girl had given birth to her pups. Wendy is about two and a half years old (1/17) and gets along well with other dogs and cats and loves to play. She is a bit on the quiet side – doesn’t bark much. She is on the smaller-medium size, and weighs about 18 kg or 40 lbs. Animal Law: We are providing information on the Animal Law 70 here in Panama in each monthly report until we feel we have covered the relevant information pertaining to domestic animals and Article 9 will be the last installment on this go-around. Article 9 addresses the sale of animals. Article 9. Trade of domestic animals is permitted provided that the exhibition and sale are conducted in rooms with adequate facilities for each species and that health regulations are met. Every natural or legal person may sell dogs and cats as long as these are at least two months old. The sale of domestic animals will not be allowed on public roads or highways. Until next month…….

  11. Hi everyone, La Villa at the BCP will not be able to host our bingo event tomorrow (Thursday, February 23) as they will not be open. We have changed the location to Mike's Global Grill and the time has changed also - now 1:30pm-3:30pm. Hope to see you all there!
  12. Asha has come home now. Judy, I'm not real sure but apparently this is something common with her breed.
  13. ASHA has escaped tonight. Please call Karen on 6525-3160 if you see her. One blue eye, one brown. She has had two operations to be spayed, but for some reason it won’t stick. She is at the end of her heat cycle now. She cannot get pregnant, but she is obviously “looking for some love”. These people have a fenced in yard and they still can’t figure out how she got out. The live about half way up the loop on Volcancito road. Please keep an eye out for her. She is a very loving and gentle dog.
  14. Susie is looking for an outgoing active partner. Someone who is not a couch potato, but likes long walks and lots of play time. She would love another dog to play with. Susie is non-stop full tilt play. She has lots of energy. She is about 3 and is spayed. Susie was rescued after having 10 puppies. She was travelling down the road each day to wait for people to dump garbage in the dumpster for her meals. Thankfully we were made aware of the situation shortly after she had her pups and were able to provide all of them with proper nutritional meals.
