  1. Every animal counts, but this was the fewest number of animals we sterilized at a single clinic in a LONG time. It was a disappointing day in that regard. See http://spaypanama-chiriqui.org/98th.html We have now sterilized 3,628 dogs and cats. We had six last-minute cancelations and 15 no-shows. Sometimes there are valid reasons for last-minute cancelations, but when people who have confirmed their appointments do not show up without bothering to notify us, it is rude and demonstrates disrespect for the doctor and our volunteers. Those inconsiderate people can bring their animals to subsequent clinics--but they will not be given appointments. They will be given a letter - A, B, C, etc., instead of a number and they will have to wait until we have time available for them. We do keep a list of people who fail to honor their confirmed appointments. ---------------- I want to extend a heartfelt thanks to each of our dedicated volunteers. Without them and our wonderful Dr. Andres Tello, these clinics would not be possible. When I remember the scores of starving, mange-ridden and dying dogs roaming the streets in Volcan before we began the clinics in March of 2006, the exponential increase that would have happened is too depressing to consider. Our next clinic will be on October 23, 2016. Please call for an appointment right away because the clinics fill up rapidly. And remember, our November clinic on the 20th will be the final one for 2016. For people who just want to see pictures taken during the clinic without reading the web page, here is the link: https://www.flickr.com/photos/panama_expat/sets/72157672887694950
  2. August 28, 2016 - Cats, cats, cats! Dr. Tello sterilized 22 dogs and 23 cats for a total of 45 animals. http://spaypanama-chiriqui.org/97th.html He also performed other procedures, including removing an eye from a dog and removing a venereal tumor. We have now sterilized 3,605 dogs and cats. Be sure to see the Flickr photo album within the web page. In the Volcan area, we desperately need more people to get involved with: --fostering animals in need --helping to find homes for animals in need --filing denuncias against people who abuse animals Please contact us and help if you can. ---------------------------------------- Sterilizations and clinics are not the only things we do. People frequently call us about a sick or injured animal. We can't deal with broken bones or internal injuries, but we help dogs and cats in other ways whenever we can. You may recall that not long ago, I reported about a cat that fell from a high place onto a piece of rebar which went through her entire body. Fortunately, it did not damage any internal organs. Rosemary Rios, a volunteer, happened to be at my house when the people called; she and Jose, my employee, used my car to take anesthesia and the necessary medications and supplies, stitched up the wound, and saved the cat's life. Now, just a few days ago, someone else called. Their dog had somehow torn a big wound on her tummy near her back leg. Jose and I took a shaver, anesthesia, antibiotics, pain medication and other necessary supplies and stitched the wound. Too bad we don't have a picture of after we shaved around the wound (before stitching) because it better shows how huge the wound was. It required 17 stitches. The dog will be fine. Our next clinic will be on September 18th. Please call for an appointment right away. The clinics fill up fast. My deep gratitude to Dr. Andres Tello and to everyone who volunteers, donates food and/or funds, and brings their animals to be sterilized. Here is a wonderful video, Dog Rescuers' Creed The only thing they fail to mention is the JOY these rescued dogs bring to the hearts of US. -- Dottie
  3. 45 animals were spayed/neutered by Dr. Andres Tello, our wonderful veterinarian. See http://spaypanama-chiriqui.org/96th.html Two dogs and one cat were pregnant and aborted. Plus someone had shot a little male dog with a pellet gun near the penis and Dr. Tello discovered the pellet and removed it. He also examined the rear leg of that same dog. It was broken in two places. A local vet had said the leg "wasn't broken" and now it was too late to do anything about it. Dr. Tello also removed a tumor from a female dog, removed a hernia, and removed a big Leishmanaisis wound from a dog's face. We had a long day. Even so, we had four last-minute cancellations and 13 no-shows. Our next clinic will be on August 28. Call for an appointment right away because the clinics fill up fast. 6891-0999 (Spanish) or 6517-8752 (English). Hugs to everyone who volunteers, participates, donates, and brings their animals to be sterilized! Dottie
  4. Sunday, May 22, 2016 - 41 animals were spayed/neutered by Dr. Andres Tello, our wonderful veterinarian. Plus he removed a huge venereal tumor from a male dog and he examined and diagnosed a hind-leg limp of a dog. http://spaypanama-chiriqui.org/94th.html A man brought his female puppy to be spayed. He said he would be leaving Panama in a few days and wanted to find a home for the puppy. Jose's cousin wants the puppy and I am fostering her while the cousin has her fence rebuilt. The puppy, Niña, is really cute! Blessings and thanks to Roseanne Bateman and Marguerite Morris. They find homeless dogs at a local restaurant and bring them to be sterilized. We have now sterilized 3,462 dogs and cats. Be sure to see my Flickr Album for pictures. The link is near the bottom of the web page. Dottie
  5. 44 animals were spayed/neutered by Dr. Andres Tello, our wonderful veterinarian. He also performed three exams/treatments and ended up amputating the tumorous toe of a big dog. He will biopsy the toe to determine if it is cancerous. http://spaypanama-chiriqui.org/93rd.html We had still another beautiful day. We have never had a clinic day with excessive rain or wind. Spirit smiles upon us for doing this work from our hearts to help the animals! We have now sterilized 3,421 dogs and cats. Be sure to see my Flickr Album for pictures. The link is near the bottom of the web page. I saw an excellent quote that describes so many of us: Rescuers, rescue supporters and volunteers do not walk on water. We don't wear capes and tights or leap tall buildings. We aren't better than anyone else, but we do pursue a cause that we believe makes us better than before we started. We make mistakes. We feel we can't do enough. We rant out in frustration, we lose our tempers and get snappy. We have to reject people sometimes for the good of a dog. We are not always likable. What we do is draining--emotionally, financially, and physically. Please bear with us and forgive us our flaws, because we are doing work that is bigger than we are. --Author Unknown Our next clinic will be on May 22, 2016. Please call for an appointment right away because the clinics fill up rapidly. Dottie
  6. 43 animals were spayed/neutered by Dr. Andres Tello, our wonderful veterinarian, plus he removed two minor tumors from a male dog. http://spaypanama-chiriqui.org/92nd.html It was a long day. At about 6:30 we had everything packed up and in my car, ready to leave. Most volunteers had gone, leaving only me and Jose, Dr. Tello, Dee Braden and Stephanie Rodriguez. We had already locked the front door when we saw a skinny little female dog nearby. As always, I had dried food in my car. I put some on the porch. She was scared but hungry enough to come eat it. Jose managed to capture her. We unlocked the building, unpacked the necessary supplies, and Dr. Tello spayed her right then. He operated on the side because she was still nursing puppies. He wouldn't even let me pay him for that dog. We love that wonderful man! Not only is he the most skilled, competent vet I've ever known, he also has such a very kind heart. We have now sterilized 3,377 dogs and cats. Be sure to see my Flickr Album for pictures. The link is near the bottom of the web page. Our next clinic is on April 17th. Call right away for an appointment because the clinics fill up fast. Dottie
  7. On November 22nd we ended the year with out biggest clinic ever! Dr. Tello sterilized 53 dogs and cats, which brings our total thus far to 3,266. http://spaypanama-chiriqui.org/89th.html We will have a well-deserved rest until January 24th. Thanks to all of our volunteers. This work couldn't be done without you. Hugs and thanks to you all. And I am grateful that I have found my true purpose in this life. And thanks to all who have brought dogs and cats to be sterilized. You are helping to reduce the suffering due to overpopulation. Happy holidays to everyone. We will have our 90th clinic on January 24, 2016. Dottie
  8. I'm a little late in finishing my web page for this clinic. Three of my six rescued puppies contracted parvo a few days ago. This is my first experience with puppies. Treating parvo has been (and is) a 24/7 job. I gave a report about it on my web page: http://spaypanama-chiriqui.org/88th.html Our next clinic, the final one for 2015, will be on November 22nd. The list is already half filled, so call (or email) right away if you need an appointment. Dottie at 6517-8752, or Jose (for Spanish) at 6891-0999. My heartfelt thanks to everyone who participates in our clinics: bringing animals to be sterilized, volunteering, contributing funds to help support the clinics, and contributing food and drinks for our doctor and volunteers. Much love to you all. Dottie
  9. SpayPanama-Chriqui is a low-cost spay/neuter clinic in Volcan. We have one veterinarian, our wonderful Dr. Andres Tello who comes from Costa Rica. (He is Panamanian but lives in Costa Rica.) We hold our clinics once a month in Volcán, except for December. Except for our veterinarian, neither I nor anyone else connected with the clinics receives any pay or financial benefit. I rent the building where we hold the clinics, and I buy all the anesthesia, medications, instruments, supplies, and equipment. I have no offices, no salaries, no advertising, no overhead. Every penny goes for the animals. This is a project from my heart, and I pay the deficits from my own pocket. Please donate if you can. Please visit http://spaypanama-chiriqui.org. See contact information there to call for an appointment. Our clinics fill up very fast. Dottie
