May 21 '17 Adelaide, Gambier, West Winds 58 surgeries!
By Laura Kimble - Baark! Chairman
Loved Adelaide Dogs
On Sunday May 21st the Baark! Volunteers teamed up with several of our local vets who donated their time at Happy Pets Animal Hospital. Baark! covered the cost of supplies for the surgeries.
Our goal was to target 3 western communities in Nassau, New Providence: Adelaide, Gambier and West Winds.
We had three collection teams out in each community early in the morning gathering the animals for surgery. Our goal was to do 30 spay and neuters and ended up spaying and neutering 58 dogs and cats!
Four children from a local school joined us to volunteer, and it was a great hands on experience for them to go out into the communities. We talked to members of the community about the importance of spay and neuter and most of them were grateful for us coming to assist them and their animals. We gave out bags of food to a few families who were struggling to feed their animals.
A highlight of the day was meeting a man in Adelaide who takes amazing care of his dogs and we were all so happy to see that. It gives us hope that our work will educate people to take proper care of their pets.
It was a huge success!
Please donate to help us keep helping dogs and cats in The Bahamas!
Student volunteers donated their time and $20 each
