Spay /Neuter Update:
We has an amazing, record breaking 2022 - assisting with 4,500 spay and neuters and saved thousands of lives ! We are off to 2023 with a bang and full of motivation to save as many dogs and cats lives as possible!
During the month of January, we completed 195 spays and neuters in our mobile clinic.
During the month of February, we did 253 total (98 cats, 155 dogs) sterilizations at our clinic. We also funded hundreds more surgeries using local vets on the island.
We have two family island spay/neuter clinics coming up in March.
If you didn’t already know, our mobile clinic is named ‘Cleo’ (short for Cleopawtra) and since her arrival last year has made a huge difference, not only to our spay/neuter numbers but our presence in the community.
In January she was located for a few wonderful weeks the Adelaide community, we were so welcomed there and it was great to see dog and cat owners bringing in their pets in for spay and neuter. You can see a video link below highlighting the work there.
After that Cleo moved to Lowe's on Soldier Road, we've been at this location before and found it's a great place to carry out our important work, we'll remain here for the entire month of March also.
As you know education is a vital part of our program and we mostly focus on teaching children about responsible pet ownership and the importance of spay and neuter. However - February was a great month of learning for OUR team! We had two visiting vet duos come in to work in 'Cleo', which was a wonderful experience for our team and volunteers getting to meet other vets and vet techs who are very experienced and part of the spay and neuter crusade in different parts of America.
In early February we had Dr. Dorothy York and RVT (Registered Veterinary Technician) Arlene Martinez from California who both work full time doing spay and neuter in a mobile clinic. At the end of February, we had Dr. Melanie deHaan and RVT Angela Bockover from Ohio visit and we’ll be partnering with them for future training projects. We’re very grateful and excited about the wealth of knowledge and information both teams have given Baark! We are always committed to growing and learning to improve our efficiencies, enabling us to help more dogs and cats each year.
We have just held our Potcakeman Triathlon , which was the tenth year we've done this event and had people swim, cycle and run to help fundraise for us!
