  2. Bryant and Sharna are moving to the Boquete/Chiriqui area permanently February 1, 2018 and seek a mid to long term sit to get us started. We have local friends and references. As retired professionals, global travelers and fur baby parents, we are capable of providing many services for your home, pets and/or hospitality business. Capable B&B and property managers, we are comfortable with the many challenges serving a variety of cultures and lifestyles. And we speak a bit of Spanish, badly. Bryant was a commercial/residential general contractor and he can build, maintain or repair just about anything. His hobbies include fine woodworking, furniture refinishing and tinkering with how to live green. Sharna was a global technology consultant and also served as a non-profit board member providing service dogs to families and veterans, and as a pet photographer for the Humane Society. Hobbies include dog training and grooming, healthy lifestyle & gluten free cooking, home accent/interior design, home organization, travel blogging, gardening and photography. We have been property owners, landlords and renters and that experience gives us perspective with many property related challenges from all viewpoints. Responsible, trustworthy, friendly, fun and open minded, non smokers and adaptable to just about any situation. As parents and fosters to both cats and dogs we are comfortable with administering medicines, special foods and tender loving care. We have two of our own senior dogs that will be with us. Max is a Sheltie and Bear is a Pekingese. They get along with just about every four-footed being, including yours! Whatever your home or pets require, let us know and we will take care of it. Yes, we have references for our home sits and our character, as do our dogs. Note: we are currently engaged on a house sitting project until mid January 2018 in the U.S. Contact us now to arrange for sits beginning February 1, 2018! Viendo hacia adelante!

  4. In a similar vein to Mary Lynah's [human] healthcare resource listing (see http://www.chiriqui.life/topic/1743-health-care-resources-mary-lynahs-resource-list-march-2016/), the management of CL are wanting to create and provide a listing of healthcare and related resources for pets. Such a listing would be posted here on CL and include information such as: Veterinarians Medical supplies for animals Boarding facilities Dog obedience training Pet sitting offerings Food Pet related community groups and clubs (e.g., Animales, ARF, etc.) The CL management will compile and publish this information for the benefit of CL members. Be sure to include: name of the resource location (municipality at a minimum) contact data (phone, email, etc.) language(s) spoken what services or products are provided hours of operation other notes or information that may be relevant If you would like to provide information to be included on this new community resource listing, please provide that information to us. We prefer that you email your resource suggestion to a special email address that has been established -- petvet@chiriqui.life. Please do NOT respond to this posting with your resource suggestions. Reply here only if you have questions/comments about this 'petvet' project. Thanks for your help and support. CL Management (Marcelyn and Bud)
  5. SpayPanama-Chriqui is a low-cost spay/neuter clinic in Volcan. We have one veterinarian, our wonderful Dr. Andres Tello who comes from Costa Rica. (He is Panamanian but lives in Costa Rica.) We hold our clinics once a month in Volcán, except for December. Except for our veterinarian, neither I nor anyone else connected with the clinics receives any pay or financial benefit. I rent the building where we hold the clinics, and I buy all the anesthesia, medications, instruments, supplies, and equipment. I have no offices, no salaries, no advertising, no overhead. Every penny goes for the animals. This is a project from my heart, and I pay the deficits from my own pocket. Please donate if you can. Please visit http://spaypanama-chiriqui.org. See contact information there to call for an appointment. Our clinics fill up very fast. Dottie
