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 http://floatingdoctors.com/
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.
