  1. After a welcome rest in December, we happily resumed the clinics on January 22nd. Dr. Tello sterilized 44 animals, which brings our total to 3,751. We would have had 18 more animals today, except 9 dogs and 9 cats were either last-minute cancellations or no-shows. See the web page at http://spaypanama-chiriqui.org/101st.html If you'd rather just see the photo album, the link is https://www.flickr.com/photos/panama_expat/sets/72157677863139431 We had a long but fairly uneventful day, except for two animals. One female dog had a venereal tumor. She had been spayed at our clinics three or four months ago, so obviously she was infected at the time and the tumor continued to grow. And one little dog, who had been bred many times, had a huge infected uterus filled with pus. She had had no obvious adverse symptoms but she soon would have died if she had not been spayed today. Besides preventing the suffering due to overpopulation, these are just two more reasons to sterilize both males and females before sexual maturity. Shortly before this clinic, someone asked me if I dread the clinics or look forward to them. My immediate reply was that I look forward to them. Helping so many animals--and their owners/guardians--is very heartwarming, not only to me but to our Dr. Andres Tello and to all of our volunteers. I consider it a privilege to be able to serve the animals and my community in this way. It is also very heartwarming to see so many youngsters bringing their pets. Education starts with the children!

  2. 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
