COUNTRY: Panama
Years of Partnership: 5

A year of record breaking sterilization success!

SPCA International and Spay Panama continued their fifth year of partnership in 2015 and celebrated Spay Panama’s amazing milestone when they reached 100,000 spay and neuters in October. In November, SPCAI and Spay Panama teamed up to break another record—1,637 sterilizations in one week-long event. The Spay Panama team has a passion for life changing sterilization surgeries and their stalwart dedication to their mission is setting a high standard for countries struggling with animal overpopulation across the globe.

“On behalf of the less fortunate animals in Panama, thank you very much for your generous donation of veterinary supplies. The gloves, face masks, antibiotic, topical cream, eye drops, ultrasound gel, syringes, etc. will benefit thousands of animals. We are feeling blessed.” - Pat Chan, Spay Panama Founder
