Eleuthera has many stray dogs and cats so in March, Baark! is teaming up with Eleuthera animal welfare advocates to put together a MASH clinic that will span over 2 weekends. The first weekend will be March 12 - 14 and the clinic will be based in Hatchett Bay. The second weekend will be March 19 - 21 and the clinic will be based in Governor's Harbour. The goal will be to spay and neuter 100 dogs and cats each weekend for a total of 200 dogs and cats.
There are currently many stray dogs and cats in Eleuthera. There are not enough homes and they are born into a life of suffering. Often times, people poison unwanted strays, which is a very painful death for them.
The goal of this spay and neuter clinic is to 'fix' 200 dogs and cats over 2 weekends in March. This will help the community tremendously in relieving people of the burden of puppies and kittens. Spay and Neuter MASH clinics are also great opportunities for education.
1 unaltered female dog and her subsequent offspring can produce 67,000 puppies in only 6 years.*(peta) An unspayed female ca and all of their offspring, producing 2 litters of kittens per year, can produce well over 10,000 kittens in 5 years. This program will provide a dramatic reduction in the number of puppies and kittens will be born to suffer on the streets of Bahamas. Less stray animals also provide safer and healthier communities. Education will bring more compassionate behavior.
