From early morning, animals and guardians waited in line


Working together to reduce the number of unwanted animals


The Health Ministry contributed with the transportation of the equipment, donated gauze, gloves, distilled water for autoclave, syringes, betadine and rabies vaccines; in addition the Health Ministry promoted the event throughout the community and was in charge of the logistics at the school.  Los Angeles de los Animales provided transportation for part of the Spay/Panama staff and collected surgical supplies and $365.  The donations in the collection box at the event total $54.37, the equivalent of $0.32 per animal.  Spay Panama's Animals Yes, USA donated the sutures and surgical needles.
