  1. April 23, 2017 - 42 animals were spayed/neutered by Dr. Andres Tello, our wonderful veterinarian. http://spaypanama-chiriqui.org/104th.html This brings our total of dogs and cats sterilized to 3,885. Although we have sterilized more than 42 animals in one day, this was our longest day ever. We didn't close the doors until 7:30 pm. We had a LOT of BIG female dogs, two abortions (all more time consuming), plus three huge tumors and a knee surgery. One tumor took an hour, and the knee surgery was also quite time consuming. Dr. Tello also performed eye surgery on a dog. One cat had to be euthanized. We are very fortunate to have such a skilled and compassionate veterinarian as Dr. Andres Tello! He is the best veterinarian I have ever known—anywhere. Thinking back to when we first began the clinics. I was always concerned that we wouldn't have enough animals. I walked the streets of Volcan, knocking on doors, giving literature to people and trying to sign up their animals for sterilization. I'd also post 60 notices all around town before each clinic. The initial work paid off, because now with just word of mouth, every clinic is full long before clinic date. As of today, April 30, we already have 26 appointments on the list for May 21st, so call right away for an appointment. We now offer teeth cleaning of dogs at our clinics. I bought a complete set of dental instruments, and Alex Rios does a great job. Alex has already cleaned the teeth of 11 of my dogs. We offer this for dogs that have already been sterilized or will be on clinic day. Cost is $25. The cost will be extra if one or more teeth need to be extracted. Be sure to make an appointment. As always, my heartfelt thanks to Dr. Andres Tello, to our wonderful volunteers, to those who contribute, whether it is funds or otherwise, and to all who bring their animals to be sterilized. TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE! Big hugs! Dottie
  2. Thus far, we have spayed/neutered 3,662 dogs/cats, which would have otherwise resulted in births of thousands of animals that that would have been abandoned—those who would have suffered horrible lives on the streets—if they survived. When some of those unfortunate dogs and cats have survived, male and female alike, they have also contributed to the overpopulation. Please see my web page for this 99th clinic: http://spaypanama-chiriqui.org/99th.html for some heartwarming reports and also see my Flickr album of pictures taken during the clinic.on October 23, 2016. My heartfelt thanks to all those who bring their animals to our clinics to be sterilized, to Dr. Andres Tello (our excellent veterinarian), to our dedicated volunteers, and to those who contribute funds, food or otherwise to help support this very important project for Volcan and the surrounding communities. November 20th will be our final clinic for 2016. The list of appointments for November is already half full, so please call immediately if you want an appointment. For Spanish, call Jose Espisosa, 6891-0999. The quote by Albert Schweitzer on my home page is absolutely true: “"Until he extends the circle of his compassion to all living things, man will not himself find peace." Love and hugs to all, Dottie – muffiemae @ gmail.com (remove spaces) 6587-8752 – Mas Movil 6361-3234 - Movistar (I do not have a smart phone or whatsapp).
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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
