Despite COVID-19, Baark! has still been able to assist with spay and neuters through our hotline. Two of our volunteers were given special permission to be out on the road during the curfew, so both trucks stayed in use :). We are so grateful to those volunteers who were willing to cautiously be out and about in order to keep saving lives!
To date, we've done over 650 spay and neuters for 2020.
Both volunteers were and continue to be very busy. One of the two volunteers who have been given special permission to be out on the streets during the COVID-19 curfew has been focusing on streets between East Street and Market Street. Over the last few weeks, she has collected and returned 50+ dogs and cats - now all spayed and neutered. We have also been assisting with flea and tick treatment for dogs that have a lot of fleas or ticks. There are two reasons for this - it assists our participating vets as we don't want their clinics to get infested when the dog goes for surgery and it is also a good opportunity to educate the community on flea and tick prevention products available from the local vets.
We did have had to postpone our annual Potcakeman Triathlon. Our hopeful date is October 4th, 2020. We were also planning a MASH clinic at the end of April in Nassau, but this will be rescheduled as well, potentially in November 2020.
Now more than ever, we really need your support. Fewer people are able to afford the surgeries for their dogs and cats. Every dollar you can donate helps tremendously!
