SPCA Internationalannounced recently that the organization has donated to Spay Panama shelter consisting of aid and supplies worth a little more than $1 million. In addition to Spay Panama, SPCA International delivered vet supply aid to Animal Friends League of Kuwait shelter values at $1,035,591.
The supplies includes: local anesthetic, anti-worm drugs, anti-parasite medications and multiple antibiotics. Along with that, SPCA also donated alcohol swabs, surgical blades, gloves and syringes to Spay Panama.
“We are pleased to have made such a large donation to a part of the world where underfunded shelters are in desperate need of supplies,” says Stephanie Scott of SPCA International. “Thanks to our supporters and donors these supplies have already been distributed and received by the shelters so that rescue and treatment work can grow to help alleviate the numbers of stray animals on the streets in Panama.”
Originally founded in 2002, Spay Panama originally began when Patricia Chan, founder, witnessed the exploding population of stray cats and dogs suffering along Panama’s streets. Quickly after that, Chan began helping animals with a small group of friends.
As for Kuwait, SPCA International’s Scott felt they run a great operation.
“Animal Friends league of Kuwait runs an amazing operation and we are honored to be able to donate this generous amount of critical supplies,” says Scott. “We know our supply aid is already doing good and needed work to help animals of all kinds in horrific situations in Kuwait.”
