On February 15 - 17th Baark! Hosted The Lindsay Panning & Toby Hull Foundation Nassau Village Clinic. Lindsay Panning & Toby Hull are existing supporting members who kindly donated a specific lump sum of $10,000 to allow us to host a MASH clinic and so we did! We had a MASH Clinic based out of Liquid Courage in Palmdale where we targeted Nassau Village. Over 3 days, we spayed or neutered 196 dogs and cats.
Nassau Village is a community in Nassau that we have been wanting to target for a MASH Clinic for a couple of years now. There are so many dogs and cats and while we were able to help some, this was just the beginning. The community members were incredibly grateful for our help for the animals.

Our new truck! We received a wonderful donation of a new Hyundai 100 truck at the beginning of February from one of our supporting members. The new truck was a huge help for this clinic allowing more efficient transport of animals.
Two special Nassau Village rescues We had some really special stories come out of this clinic including a few wonderful rescues.
Lexi was found a wandering yet friendly street dog in Nassau Village. She was emancipated and has suffered a severely broken hip, erlychia and heartworm. The neighbors of the area asked that she not be returned to the streets as nobody could feed her. She won our hearts instantly in the clinic and is now in a loving BAARK! home.
Nellie was also found abandoned and terrified in Nassau Village and would scream in fear at the touch of a human hand. We spent the final day of clinic with a volunteer dedicated to cuddles and soon after Nellie was beginning to trust. She then went on to our BAARK foster paradise in Norman’s cay and currently resides in Illinois!
We really want to go back to Nassau Village, but as our budget is limited, so we are working hard to raise funds to host another clinic in April!
