The mission behind Fundacion Amigos de Animales Boquete in Panama is to provide low cost spaying and neutering ofdogs and cats and to promote the general welfare of animals in the Boquete community and surrounding areas.
The foundation was started in 2005 by a small group of concerned citizens in order to provide low-cost spay and neuter services to local pets and to the abundant number of street animals in the community. Since the beginning, the organization has been able to sterilize more than 3,000 cats and dogs. By working closely with local veterinarians, the organization has sought to improve existing veterinary facilities and services by facilitating training and introducing new surgical techniques adopted from outside sources.
In 2009, staffed entirely by volunteers, a rescue and adoption division was added on and from their efforts, more than 100 cats, dogs, and birds have found forever homes. The results of their hard work have already been visible by the reduced number of stray animals regularly seen on Boquete's streets, but the problem continues to persist and the funds are drying out.
