Special Thanks to our wonderful volunteers (all 89 of you!) who offered loving individual care to our patients during recovery and to all volunteers who helped set up and take down our clinic (an arduous task), those who organized canopies to keep us from melting in the sun, those who worked in reception, those who worked in the in-take and discharge area and all those who participated in any way.....WOW! What a great job you all did!! Thank you!!

Many, many thanks for the delicious and nutritious lunches, snacks and refreshments which kept us all going!

Many thanks to Rodger Murphy for opening his beautiful home to the medical team for a BBQ.

More thanks go out to our Hospitality, Laundry and Transportation volunteers.

Also special thanks to Chely and Freddie at ‘Pop In’ grocery store in Guayabitos for their donation of the canopies which made the recovery area bearable for both patients and volunteers. Many thanks to Hudd and his helpers for putting them up and taking them down along with devising ingenious ways to keep the sun off our volunteers and patients. Not an easy task!

It is thanks to our kind hearted donors that JBAR is able to continue to offer these clinics along with free sterilizations, vaccinations and emergency vet care all year long. Please consider making a donation to help us!
