Getting ready for Operation Potcake 2014!

In January 2013, Operation Potcake consisted of 10 days.  We spayed and neutered 2,315 dogs. All of the animal welfare groups in Nassau worked under the leadership of Emma Clifford from Animal Balance.  We worked really hard and learned a lot!  Emma's plan was to teach us and guide us so we could repeat the exercise again with Animal Balance working in the background as consultants. 

So here we are, planning Operation Potcake 2014 ourselves! Hats off to Emma for teaching us how to 'fish'! Ofcourse we are still in frequent contact with Emma and she has helped us find our offshore vets and volunteers but I think she would be very proud of our local planning team. 

Operation Potcake 2014 is 5 days long and will be hosted at 4 clinics.  Our goal is 1,000 spay and neuters of dogs and cats this time! We are having a dedicated cat clinic to tackle the feral cat problems we are facing in Nassau.

With about 4 weeks to go, vets are confirmed for the project, we are ordering medical supplies, and materials needed.  

We have our four clinic locations confirmed. 

  1. Kemp Road will be at St. Bedes Church hall again like last time
  2. East Street is moving slightly south and will be in an outside setting at Our Lady's church.  We will have the vets operating under a veranda and the recovery tent will be in the grass.  There is a large parking lot for people to come into and we think it is a little sanctuary in the middle of a very busy area. 
  3. Carmichael will be at the Valley Boys Junkanoo shack where it was last time as well. 
  4. Lastly, we are very excited to include a cat clinic this year which will be held at the Bahamas Humane Society in Chippingham. 

We provide breakfast and lunch for all our hard working volunteers, we even have volunteers that work on getting food donated from local restaurants and managing it for us! It is a serious operation! Starbucks has already signed on to donate much coffee every morning!!!  Our days start at 7am and end after 7pm.

So far Sandals has stepped up and donated 8 rooms, and we have private residences as well that people have kindly offered.  

We are all getting excited - posters will be ordered this week and at the middle of January we will be putting up flyers and posters! 

Earlier in December we had the pleasure of receiving the documentary kindly created by Isabella Astengo on Operation Potcake 2013.  We hope you will watch it and see a bit about what Operation Potcake is all about!
