Bahamas Spay & Neuter Program

Operation Potcake 2015 is now Operation Potcat

Posted on Oct 6, 2014 in Latest News | 1 comment

Hello, all!

It’s official! Operation Potcake 2015 will be Operation Potcat 2105.
This is due to the widespread and ongoing outbreak of distemper on New Providence Island. We believe that surgeries may compromise dogs’ immune systems and may put them at risk.

Dr. Diana Scollard and her team will be running the cat clinic at the Bahamas Humane Society as was done last year.

So, the plan is to stick with the dates as already set.
– Clinic set up – Wednesday, January 28th (so the WHOLE TEAM is there to set up together)
– Surgery – Thursday, January 29th – Tuesday, February 3rd (half day surgery and pack up day on Tuesday, then party that night!)

This means, sadly, that all of you amazing foreign volunteers will not be required to travel here this year. We will miss you and your dedicated hard work on behalf of our potcakes. Thank you all so much for volunteering in the past and offering to volunteer for 2015. Please keep us in your plans for 2016! The “but” to this is… if you have somewhere here in Nassau to stay and will be travelling down this way during our clinic dates, you are more than welcome to join us!

If you would like to be on the BHS cat clinic team (we will need a LOT of trappers, transporters, cage cleaning and registration people!), please let me know directly. If I do not already have a current volunteer form for you, please complete and return one.

NOTE: We will no longer be running the Eleuthera clinic in January but will be doing another on Long Island over another weekend.

    Hello,
    I am a Veterinary Assistant & Zoologist back in the states but a new winter resident to Long Island. I see there is to be a spay/neuter clinic on Long Island in October this year. Is that a joint initiative between BAARK and OP? I only recall seeing BAARK’s name on the advertisement.

    If OP is at all involved, I am interested in helping in any way I can here on Long Island. I am adept at assisting with surgery and recovery.

    I was part of the rescue team for the dog “Gordon the Lucky” here on Long Island. We are banding together to try to get him all the care he deserves.

    Regards,
    Stacey Venzel
