There is a passionate group of volunteers that head up the Voluntarios Por Los Animales Puerto Armuelles, a nonprofit organization that is dedicated to ending animal abuse and homeless dogs and cats in our beach-side town. The Panamanian organizer (Irma) and Veterinarian (Dr. Crespa) have been putting on clinics since 2014 and are slowly beginning to educate the local population on the importance of sterilizing pets and ethical treatment of animals.
Be a part of the solution!
