Amigos de Animales

I know I just posted yesterday, but wanted to share a few pics of todays event.  Amigos de Animales (check out their FB page) holds a spay and neuter clinic once a month and also do various surgeries as well treating for parasites and giving immunizations.  This is all by volunteer and donation and is a much needed service in this part of the world.  Vets come from all over and my job today gave me an opportunity to get to know some of the doctors while they were working.  The conditions are minimal, but the talent and expertise is immense. Not for the squeamish.  Pictured are Dr. Racquel, Dr. Cesar, and Dr. Kimberly.  Not shown are Drs. Ericka, Tello, Aron, and the amazing Dr. Dan.  Dr. Dan came over from Bocas del Toro and lives in a slum area among the indigenous people where he has a small clinic, but also goes into the field to provide much needed services to the area.  Check out this website for more info on Dr. Dan at
Dennis and I worked 1/2 a day and assisted with 115 animals.  I’m sure the number will double by the end of the day. Our pets leave blessed lives, but not all dogs and cats are so lucky.  TODAY WAS A GOOD DAY.

About Rona True

Welcome to my blog. My name is Rona and I live here in Boquete, with my husband, Dennis. I've been keeping an online 'journal' of our adventure moving to Panama as a way to stay in touch with friends. As the universe is wont to do, my path crossed with some serious bloggers who have been encouraging me to step it up a bit with my technology, and so here I am; a novice blogger with a penchant for the spiritual path. Panama is a perfect place to recover the pieces I left along the way as I raised a family, had a career in teaching, and generally followed the 'responsible' road. I travel a new road now and each day brings a new awareness. Panama is a land which brings the senses alive. The culture, warmth of its people, sights and sounds are the stimulus for my journey. Without my incredible husband, this would not be possible. We breathe the same air on this adventure and I invite you to come along for the ride.
