Hello everyone! For February, the amount of monthly donations was $2909.00 and expenses totaled $3817.00. Thank you to everyone who contributed!
A special thank you goes out to our friend Steve who made a substantial donation, and Marian who held a fundraiser at La Villa to raise money for food purchases.
In February 7 dogs and 1 cat found their forever home. We currently have 25 dogs and 8 cats in our care.
If you have any friends or relatives looking for a pet, please direct them to our site or have them contact us, as we have many ready for adoption.
Please consider fostering an animal if you are able to do so. We are in desperate need of temporary homes for the many animals that the community is alerting us to and are having a very difficult time keeping up. It is never our goal to turn away an animal in need, but we only have so many places to put these animals, and we need your help.
When you foster an animal with ARF, we take care of all food and medical expenses – we just need you to provide a loving and protective environment.
After the unfortunate robbery at La Villa, we had to scramble to find an alternate location for our bingo. Thanks to Mike and Heidi at Mike’s Global Grill for offering their place at the last minute! Many participants commented that they liked the switch and also that they would like to see bingo held once a month. We will keep you updated on these developments.
ARF Pancake Breakfast/Adoption Event-Sunday March 19th at the Animales Building 9:00am-11:00am.
Here we go again! Our last event in October was very successful, so we are doing it again! $10 buys you a stack of pancakes, bacon, fruit, juice, coffee or tea and a chance to meet some of the fine animals we have loooking for a home. We will also be raffling off 2 spa inspired packages. Tickets can be purchased at the Tuesday market, Mailboxes Etc. and at the door if we don’t sell out.
We also have our Hoedown coming up in April – keep your eyes and ears open for more details.
Looking for a home
Susie is a sweet and very smart little Panamanian Bird Dog, very rare we are certain. She is looking forward to finding her permanent home. Susie was rescued after giving birth to 10 pups.
We happened to follow up on a call to visit a finca near Isla Verde one hour after this pretty girl had given birth to her pups. Wendy is about two and a half years old (1/17) and gets along well with other dogs and cats and loves to play. She is a bit on the quiet side – doesn’t bark much. She is on the smaller-medium size, and weighs about 18 kg or 40 lbs.
Animal Law: We are providing information on the Animal Law 70 here in Panama in each monthly report until we feel we have covered the relevant information pertaining to domestic animals and Article 9 will be the last installment on this go-around. Article 9 addresses the sale of animals.
Trade of domestic animals is permitted provided that the exhibition and sale are conducted in rooms with adequate facilities for each species and that health regulations are met. Every natural or legal person may sell dogs and cats as long as these are at least two months old. The sale of domestic animals will not be allowed on public roads or highways.
Until next month…….
