Adjusting OP2015 Plans due to Distemper Outbreak - OPERATION POTCAT?!

Summer 2014 brought an unexpected turn of events for Nassau, the animal rescue groups and the OP2015 Planning Committee. 

June and July Nassau, New Providence had an awful epidemic of distemper spreading and we are still seeing cases to date and it is mid September.  We have sadly lost many dogs.  Our local vets estimate between 1,000 and 2,000 dogs have perished to this awful disease. 

The Bahamas Humane Society and the Bahamas Vet Board supported by the Bahamian Government and Humane Society International have been diligent about organizing vacinnation clinics in the communities of Nassau and educating people about proper vacinnations.  

Due to this, it was decided that in New Providence we should not host MASH Clinics for OP2015 to be on the safe side. We do not know if there will still be cases in Nassau, or if a dog carrying the disease but not showing signs could affect other dogs at the clinic. 

So we have decided to focus on cats, we will be having a cat clinic in Nassau, like we did last year, and we will most likely be doing cat clinics in the family islands as well.  There are a lot of feral cat colonies that thrive in the family islands, and we are looking at this as an opportunity to focus on the cats.

We will also plan to be incorporating vacinnation clinics in the family islands and educating people.  

The lesson learned here is no matter how much one can plan you have to be adatpable.  You can be sure that the OPERATION POTCAKE/CAT TEAM will be providing assistance to the animals of the Bahamas! 

Please keep supporting, within the next month we will have details about what the exact plan will be! 

Thank you! Laura
