Paws for the Cause – DogCamp Boquete
CONGRATULATIONS ARE IN ORDER.
On Friday, April 2nd underwent a MINSA inspection and passed with flying colors!!!!!!
They checked the dogs and the area and they didn't find anything wrong!
We are the only shelter/rescue/board and care center for BOQUETE
As you know, DogCamp’s goal is to help abandoned, neglected and abused
dogs reach good health so that they can be placed in temporary foster care, or better yet, find a forever, loving home.
Currently there are 46 dogs on site, with an additional 16 dogs and cats that are being ged and supported ‘on the street’. Needless-to-say, the demand for food, medicine and medical attention continues to be a constant need. While we won’t bore you with their complete itemized monthly expense report its worth viewing some of the ongoing monthly costs DogCamp incurs:
Yard maintenance (fumigate) and a worker $400.
Gas $240. (rescues, Dr. appmts. Getting supplies, etc)
Cleaning Supplies $126.
Dog Food $1,532.
Monthly Medical Care (medicine, shampooing, vitamins,etc) $213.
Medical Care/ Treatment per new rescue dog $170. (average # of
new rescues per month is 5-6 which gives you a sense of the
total monthly cost in this one category)
Obviously we rely on our wonderful community to help with these ongoing expenses and resources. For that reason and much more, we thank you and appreciate all you do to support our efforts.

OUR FAVORITE SUPPORT MECHANISM IS
FOSTERCARE AND ADOPTION-
Nothing is more than when a family chooses to foster or adopt one of our furry loved ones.
Its hard to see our rescues arrive battered, abandoned or neglected, and while DogCamp creates a special bond with each dog rescue, there is nothing more exciting for us to see our dogs get an opportunity for foster care or adoption, Consistent, loving human contact is invaluable in ensuring a happy, healthy way of life for our dogs. Additionally, adoptions allow us to make room for the many more dogs in need of the same level of loving support and care.
