119th Spay/Neuter Clinic in Volcan

Recommended Posts

 We are so very fortunate to have Dr. Andres Tello operate at our clinics! http://spaypanama-chiriqui.org/119th.html

We had this clinic on August 12th and we will have another on August 26th. It is extra work for everyone involved to have two clinics in one month, but the August 26th clinic has been full for some time now. Our September clinic will be on the 30th. Please call (or whatsapp) at 6640-3171 for appointments.

We are still having problems (such as no success) in getting the local authorities to enforce the law regarding abuse of animals. We will now contact the TV and radio stations about this problem. Other suggestions, please?

Here in Volcan, our small group has been responsible for sterilizing 4,539 dogs and cats to date. (And this number does not include the extraordinary surgeries that Dr. Tello has performed at our clinics...removal of tumors, amputations, etc., nor the clinic we performed in Davila in which 35 dogs were sterilized.)

There are many more to go, but we are making progress! Our goal is to sterilize at least 75% of the dogs and cats in the Volcan area, and thus almost completely solve the problem of homeless dogs and cats, and the terrible venereal disease suffered by so many dogs--but thankfully, we see a lot fewer venereal tumors than we did in the past!.

Remember: In 7 years a female cat and her off springs can be the source of 420,000 kittens. In 6 years a female dog and her off springs can be the source of 67,000 puppies. Unless your dog/cat is totally confined and unable to continue the population increase (AND the spread of venereal disease), please do the humane thing of having them sterilized!

For the health and safety of your dog/cat, however, have the sterilization performed by a competent vet who is experienced in early sterilization (eight weeks of age and up) and small-incision surgeries, and one who uses stainless steel sutures....like Dr. Tello, who we are so fortunate to have operate at our clinics. (I do not trust care of my dogs or injured dogs that I find in the street to ANYONE except Dr. Tello.)

Thanks to everyone who participated in our clinics today, and to those who had their pets sterilized. Always remember that TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

Big hugs,
