Adopting a pet in Panama


Are you a dog or a cat person? A pet can add life to a home and make an ideal travel companion during your expatriation in Panama.

However, formalities or regulations might put you off traveling with your pet making adoption a better option.

Are there any particular rules or procedures for the adoption of an animal in Panama?

What are the costs associated with adopting a pet in Panama?

Are there different procedures depending on the animal?

Are pet-sitting options available?

Have you ever adopted a pet in Panama? Is he or she still with you today?

Thank you in advance for your feedback,



There are not regulations for adopting pets in Panama nor has to be registered the adoption.

A vet can take care of vaccinations and care for the pet and issue a vaccine card with the information of the pet.

For birds it is advised to register them at the Anam office where a document will be issued stating that you are the caretaker for the bird.
