ARF March Report


Recommended Posts

  • Administrators

Thank you to those who attended our Hoedown event.  From what we have been hearing everyone considered it a success.  We would like to especially thank those who donated raffle prizes (Mike’s Global Grill, Panama Red Rum and Panama Joe Coffee) and also to Colleen Hunt for the great meal that was enjoyed by all.  Also, Kjersten Van Horn for the line dancing instruction and Stone for the great pulled pork and music provided.  We also thank our many volunteers who contributed to the coordination of the event.


So March seems to have been the month for people throwing tiny kittens out of cars or putting them in garbage bins and left to die.  We have taken on three poor souls that found themselves in these situations.   They are currently being looked after and are on the road to recovery.


Our donations were good this month and we thank everyone who contributed.  Unfortunately, it is another month where our expenses surpassed our donations.  A total of $645.00 was received in donations.   Expenses came to $860.50.


Not a great month for adoptions……only 4 dogs and 1 cat, but to be honest, we don’t have many that are “ready” for adoption at this time.  Several are currently being treated for medical conditions.


In conjunction with the 105th birthday of Boquete, the Mayor will be holding a “Dia de Animales” on this Sunday, April 10th from 9am-1pm.  ARF will have an adoption table with all of our current fosters available to meet. Amigos de Animales will also be sharing a table with us - handing out information regarding animal care and the Animal Law here in Panama.  The event will be held in the park.  Please come by and give a "pat" to our fosters, or maybe event take one home with you!


Bingo is scheduled for April 14th.  This month’s theme is “Spa Day”.  This was a very popular theme last time we did it, so we are giving it another go.   Same time and place, La Posada from 2-4pm.
