  3. Abuela is back! This is Abuela. She is approximately 7 years old and has been spayed. We do not know her story, as she simply “showed up” on someone’s doorstep one day. It is very obvious that for most of her life she was probably on a short chain. Her “elbows” and rear show signs that she was made to sit on a hard surface for long periods of time. She has a very sweet disposition and just wants to be loved. Abuela is a large dog, approximately 80 pounds. She was previously adopted, but the owner is not caring for her properly. We want to find a good loving home for her.

    ARF February report

    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…….

    Susie needs a home

    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.

  7. Beginning March 1st for only two months. They will pay for food and provide the dog's crate and blanket where he likes to sleep at night. Friends in Boquete rescued this dog from an Indio. They tended a wound in the dog's leg and had him neutered. He went from a terrible life to a good life. The dog is apparently deaf. He is a hound...and of course howls. They have to return to the states for two months and they're at their wit's end about finding care for their beloved dog during that time. Can you help? 6517-8752 Dottie

  9. Hi all, We are urgently requesting dog food donations for one of our fosters. They have 8 of our dogs and will run out of food tomorrow. We have limited volunteers right now, and even fewer with transport. Unfortunately we were not advised earlier, otherwise we could have made arrangements. If anyone would be willing to drop off a bag of dry dog food (they currently eat Pedigree), please contact Javier on 6965-9423. Thank you!

    Looking for a sponsor

    Meet Celestino. Celestino was in a motorcycle accident about 12 years ago, and now is partially paralyzed. He lives alone and does a bit of woodworking for a small income. Celestino has two cats and one dog that he just adores and that mean the world to him but he struggles with providing food for them, and it is always a constant worry to him that his animals will go hungry. He also has another cat that is hanging around looking for food, but he has been “shooing” the cat away as he didn’t have enough food to feed his own pets. ARF was made aware of Celestino and his situation thru one of our volunteers. We paid him a visit and provided food for his animals. It was a very nice meeting; Celestino is a sweet and humble man who cherishes the companionship he has with his animals. ARF will be trapping and having the stray cat fixed at the January clinic. We are looking for sponsors for Celestino and his animals. The cost of food per month works out to $54.00 for the cats and his dog. We would like to find a sponsor for each month of the year. Is there anyone out there willing to donate to cover February? Part of ARF’s mission is to assist those who genuinely care for their animals but may not have the means to do so. It is only thru your kind donations that this can be achieved. Celestino is also assisted by the Handicapped Foundation (FPI) and Buenos Vecinos. As ARF now joins in helping Celestino with his beloved animals, this represents a true community effort that has improved his life for the better.

  12. Tiempo was found roaming in the Alto Boquete area. He is young, sweet, gentle, and comes to people easily. When found, the tip of his tail was damaged and it had to be removed. He also had a tumor on his private part and a testicle that did not descend that were also removed. (Poor guy doesn’t have much luck in this area). Tiempo’s tumor has now grown back and it has been determined that he needs to undergo 3 chemo treatments…..however, he currently has tick fever, so he needs to recover from this first. The chemo treatments are $60 each and we are looking for donations to cover these and his other medical expenses. If you would like to help Tiempo on his road to recovery, please visit our site and reference “Tiempo” on your Pay Pal donation. You can also contribute at the Tuesday market.

  13. Here are a few of our friends hoping to find a loving home for the new year: Charlie is a male Cocker, around 3 years old and weighs 35 lbs. He likes to chase cats, but does not harm them. He is friendly with other dogs, chickens and children. His favorite pass time is cuddling. Very sweet little guy. Winnie is ready for adoption! It has been since February that this girl has been given TLC to get back her health and her weight…..she looks like a real Boxer now! She was being starved by her owner, and it was touch and go for a while there. Winnie is a very smart girl. She is good with other dogs but not with cats. She loves cuddles and car rides. She is very much a family dog that is very loyal and protective. Susie is a sweet and very smart little Panamanian Bird Dog, very rare we are certain. Her foster is teaching her basic commands and how to walk on a leash. She will be ready for adoption in January 2017 and is looking forward to finding her permanent home. Susie was rescued after giving birth to 10 pups. Caramel the kitty is approximately 6 months old (as of January 2017) He is very playful, cheerful, and loves other cats. He is also a good hunter. Caramel loves to be cuddled and held. He prefers to be inside, but also enjoys the outdoors. This sweet little hound, Elle Mae, was a stray helped by some very kind people who have now moved. Dr. Tello tells us that she is quite young, has never had pups, and is in good condition. She is very sweet and playful and gets along with other dogs. She looks as though she may be at least part German Short Haired Pointer.

    Plea for Help

    Hello all, Well, I thought we might get a bit of a break over the upcoming holidays, but this is proving not to be the case. This is a plea to current, past, and future ARF fosters, as well as ARF donators, contacts, and the Boquete community in general for foster or forever homes for these animals. In the past two weeks + there have been many animals brought to our attention that we need to find placement for, some needing immediate placement. The most urgent are noted below. Pictures are attached. Cholo: This handsome guy was brought to our attention by a gentleman in Alto Boquete. Cholo had been hit by a car and they graciously offered to take care of him during the recovery period. Once he was feeling better, however, Cholo made his great escape and was wandering the neighborhood (probably because he was not yet fixed). Another rescue angel found him, and now he is recovering from his neuter surgery on Saturday. Cholo needs to be moved as soon as possible as he needs to be monitored and his current environment is not ideal. He has already removed his stiches from the surgery and had to be taken back to the vet to be re-stitched. Elle Mae: This young girl has been hanging around someone's house, but sadly they cannot keep her and she must find place to go by December 2nd. They have fattened her up and gotten her spayed and now she is ready to make a great pet for someone with a fenced yard. She is very friendly, playful with other dogs and is a good watchdog. If you can give Ellie Mae a safe place, you'll be rewarded by the warmest welcomes every time you come home! Vijeo: This very sweet old guy was one of the dogs that was the inspiration for the founder of ARF to start the organization. He was run over by a bus about 5 years ago and his legs are a little wobbly, but he still gets around quite well. His many scars are testament to the rough life he has endured. He has an interest in cats, in a friendly way, and pretends to be a "macho man" around other dogs, but in reality, he just ends up whining at them. Vijeo is a senior dog in his final years, and we would like to find a loving home where he can spend the rest of his days lounging and receiving the love that he deserves. Suzie: This little girl is being surrendered by her owner. She recently had 10 puppies and was discovered and brought to our attention soon after the birth. On a daily basis, she was waiting by a garbage bin for scraps to be discarded as her "meal" for the day . She was in terrible condition and still has a ways to go before she is healthy. We helped the owner with food and supplements during the nursing, so she looks a bit better, but still needs some TLC and proper vet care. She is a little feisty around new people, but once she gets to know you she is a love bug. (picture is prior to being properly fed so she has some weight on her now). When you are a foster for ARF, all food, medication and vet bill costs are covered by ARF. There are also many more out there that we have not even had an opportunity to investigate so we are also appealing for bi-lingual people to help with investigations. Our current volunteer base is overwhelmed with trying to keep up. If you, or anyone you know can help with either fostering or investigations, please contact us.

  17. Oct 29, 2016 - This little guy, was rescued by someone in David. He was taken to St. Francis animal hospital and was being treated for a very bad case of mange. Pepe's rescuer then took him to a foster home, which turned out not to be ideal. ARF got involved and found a new foster home for him. Nov 2, 2016 - Updated picture of Pepe (now being called Marley) in foster care. The cone is to keep him from scratching under his chin, where he has some pretty bad open sores, and the socks are to lessen the effect of him scratching his body elsewhere. Nov 9, 2016 - Marley has gained 2 pounds in the last week, but continues to have a very bad and persistent cough which is being monitored. His vet visit on Monday revealed that he has tick fever, so he is now on antibiotics for that. The vet bills are rising, and we could use your help again. All of the animals that we rescue come to ARF in various ways. Rescuing animals is not just simply taking them in, feeding them and placing them in new homes. It is more complicated than that. ARF is often called to assist with animals that have been abused, are in distress or have been neglected. This includes a visit to the site or home where the animal is located, and an evaluation of the situation. If an owner is involved, they are spoken to regarding the condition of their animal and if steps are not taken to correct the situation, their animal can be seized. In many cases, animals are just found wandering the streets in a poor state. We try to help as many of these animals as much as we can. Often, it depends on if there is a foster available to take them in. They can be in our care for only a few days or as long a year. We are responsible for the health care and the socialization of each of our animals. This is necessary for a successful adoption. All of this takes time, money and foster homes. If you would like to donate your time, money or be a foster home please contact us.

  18. UPDATE NOVEMBER 11, 2016: Alex escaped from the nice people who were looking after him, and has again been found. He is not in an ideal situation right now, and we are looking for a safe place for him to stay. If you can open your heart and home to this handsome guys until he finds a forever home, please contact us. Alex was hit by a car on September 29th and wandered over to a nearby house. These people have generously offered to look after him. ARF took him to the vet to have his leg examined, and thankfully it was not broken, but a very bad sprain that will take some time to heal. He was given painkillers, a vitamin shot, de-wormer and anti-biotics as he also has a urinary tract infection. Alex was the most cooperative patient I have ever seen! Not even a flinch when he was given his shots and even though this guy must have been feeling miserable and in quite a bit of pain, he still had a very loving and gentle disposition. Alex is about 2 years old. We believe he has an owner as he did have a collar on, but no one has come forward as of yet. If the owners are not found, Alex will be put up for adoption. If you would like to donate towards Alex's medical costs, please visit our website.

  20. At animal shelters and rescue groups across the world, there are an abundance of healthy senior pets looking for a special home to cherish them for the rest of their lives. Although shaping the life of a youngster sounds appealing, giving a second change to an older companion can be equally rewarding. They like to share quiet moments, are in most cases trained, and do not chew or scratch everything in sight. Older pets have plenty to offer to adopters – not the least of which is love. Here are the benefits of adopting an adult/older animal: Calm Demeanor: An adult animal’s relatively calm demeanor and less intense exercise needs make them the perfect match for a full-time working household or an older person seeking a friendship and love. Older pets often make excellent, or at the very least, agreeable companions for other household pets as well. Physical Demands are Low: Fortunately, many senior animals are not as demanding as a younger animal. Like any animal, they need quality time in the form of attention and exercise, but the length and intensity of exercise may not be as great. Older dogs, for example, may prefer quiet walks to running or active play and will usually not pull you around on the leash or jump up on you. Already Trained: Adult animals often already know how to live harmoniously with humans. In general, adult pets require far less supervision and less constant care which can make them ideal companions for people with already busy lives. They may already be litter box or housetrained. Size at Maturity is Known: Senior animals, e.g. dogs, cats, small mammals, have already reached their maximum size and weight and therefore will not require additional purchases anticipating future growth needs. For instance, a senior dog, unlike a growing puppy needs only one size collar, harness, lead, dog bed or travel crate. What You See is What you Get: With adopted older pets you will usually know about any behavior challenges or health considerations before you adopt. In other words, there are no surprises. Attached are some of our "seniors" who are looking for a permanent home. Chomba - 7 years old. Bingo - 6 years old. Benji 6 years old.

    Romeo and Cholo

    Romeo the Spaniel and Cholo These two boys are each about 3 years old. They will get their vaccinations this week and be neutered in David on November 26. They are both good with cats, dogs, chicken and children, although Cholo has had limited experience with children. They were found by Super Ivan's. It was discovered that a family in the area was feeding them for about two months, but they can no longer take on anymore dogs. They will be ready for adoption after they are fixed on the 26th.

    ARF October Report

    Hello everyone! For October, the amount of monthly donations was $2443.00 and expenses totaled $2032.00. Thank you to everyone who contributed! We received another large contribution this month and we cannot thank the donators enough! Thank you to the anonymous donor for the $1500.00. This will go a long way in helping us catch up on some of our bills. 3 dogs found their forever home this month, but no cats were adopted. 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. 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. If you are not in the position to foster an animal, please consider making a donation. Any amount is greatly appreciated. Bingo – Unfortunately bingo was cancelled for November 3rd. We realized a bit too late that the date fell too close to all the holidays here in Panama. This will take place again either in January or February. Thanksgiving Lunch/Dinner! – Get your tickets soon….we already have a large group that will be attending. On Thanksgiving Day (November 24th) we will be having a Thanksgiving meal with all the trimmings. Rather than slave in the kitchen all day, bring your friends and family and let us do all the work and help the animals at the same time! As Thanksgiving is associated with a bountiful feast, we would also like to ask those attending to give back and bring a bag of food (Purina/Pedigree/Kirkland) or cat/dog toys to contribute for the many animals we currently have in our care. The tickets will be $20.00 for adults and $10.00 for children. The event will run from 3:00pm-5:00pm at the Animales Building and we will be raffling off two gift baskets with autumn themed goodies. There will also be wine, beer, soda and water available for purchase. Tea and coffee are included with the ticket price. Holiday Bazaar for WINOS (Women in Need of Shopping) – This is an afternoon event planned for November 30th at Mike’s Global Grill. Some of the venders, to mention a few, will be JUJU Beads, Los Angeles Arts, Mr. Dog and StyleDots. Thanks very much to Yolanda The Jewelry Lady for donating two items to be raffled at this event. Time: 12:00N-4:00pm. Our new charges: We came across two very sad cases this month. Zembla (the white dog) was rescued near the airport in David. Just skin and bones, she also has tick fever. It will be a long road for this girl before she is healthy again. We also took on Pepe. He is also needing to gain some weight and has a horrible case of mange. He also currently has a very bad infection and is being treated with anti-biotics. As you can see from the photo, he has very little hair. Once healthy again, he’s going to be a very handsome boy. Update: Now attached is a picture of Pepe (now being called Marley) in foster care. The cone is to keep him from scratching under his chin, where he has some pretty bad open sores, and the socks are to lessen the effect of him scratching his body elsewhere. As you can imagine, these are not short-term recoveries. We want to thank the fosters for taking them in……fostering saves lives. You can make a donation thru our website or at the Tuesday market. Mike’s Global Grill has also set up a donation box, so stop by and have a beer and help out Zembla and Pepe. Donations will be counted for them towards our November numbers, as October’s numbers were closed off a few days early as our accountant is currently away. Animal Law: We have decided to provide a few tidbits from the Animal Law 70 here in Panama in each Monthly report until we feel we have covered the relevant information pertaining to domestic animals.

  24. Another update: Good news for Zembla, her liver is not as bad as it looked. This means that I can start with the 3 weeks of doxicicline to treat the tick fever. She still needs the special Hepatic food and Hepatocan liver protection pills, combined with Hemavet to boost her blood values. She is also being dewormed. I'll keep you posted! This dog was found near the airport in David yesterday. We are urgently seeking donations for the care that will be required to help this dog.
