World Animal Day Event Report Panama is leading the frontier in the fight against no more homeless animals throughout Central and South America. Spaying and neutering is the only way to reassure a happy and healthy life for our companion animals. Without these life-saving services, dogs and cats will die a likely death of being hit by a car, starvation, or another leading cause, TVT (transmissible venereal tumor). Spay Panama is happy to announce that through your donation and our sponsors’, we were able to sterilize 1,236 animals for World Animal Day in the Azuero Peninsula area. The lives of many animals and the their guardians have been improved, thanks to hard work and dedication from our volunteers and veterinarians! Further related information Thanks to the sponsorship of SPCAI, over 3,000 animals have been sterilized in Panama for World Animal Day. This means that more than 1,500,000 unwanted births have been avoided in the last three years. The goal for World Animal Day 2014 is to spay/neuter 1,500 animals and the area chosen is Peninsula de Azuero, covering the communities of Chitre, Parita, Villa de los Santos and Las Tablas. Spay/Panama has sterilized 1,394 animals in Chitre and Las Tablas. Chitre is the capital of the Panamanian province of Herrera.
