We are happy to share an update for April and May 2019.
We have been busy helping lots of animals, and this wouldn't be possible without your support.
April 5 - 7 - The team went to Georgetown Exuma. At the Exuma Clinic they performed 78 surgeries.
May 3 & 4 - San Salvador Clinic - Our new trailer is already getting lots of use! It was lovely to be able to take it down to the dock, unhitch and leave and then on the other end, Troy was able to just hitch up the trailer and take it to the site. This saved a tremendous about of loading and lifting! The 2019 San Sal Spay and Neuter Campaign was a big success! 29 animals were treated, some just came to see the vet and 19 were spayed or neutered. We rescued 3 puppies from the dump who were adopted into loving homes in Canada and we rescued a four month old pup on the brink of starvation and had her adopted into an incredible Sal Salvador home. The fact that our numbers are lower than usual is a true testament to our success with our Spay and Neuter Campaigns. It’s working yay!!
May 24-26 - Baark! returned to Georgetown, headed up by Lissa McCombe, to focus specifically on the wild and roaming dogs at the west end of the island. Many people in Rolleville, which is about 45 minutes away from Georgetown, are very willing to get their animals fixed but have no transportation. The volunteers went a day before the vet and set all of our traps and picked up many owned animals from Rolleville and returned the next morning to find 90% of our traps filled. It was a time-consuming trip but we managed to spay and neuter 62 animals in about 36 hours. There are many more animals on Great Exuma and many more settlements to target. We brought five somewhat feral bush puppies back to Nassau and are working with them at Potcake puppy palace to find amazing homes either here or abroad.
With the summer heat upon us, we won't be hosting any MASH clinics until November, but our volunteers will continue regular pick ups and the Baark! call continues to ring for help from the public.
Your contribution is greatly appreciated and goes a long way to make a difference reducing the suffering of dogs and cats in The Bahamas.
