A first time event took place recently on Moore’s Island. Abaco Shelter together with Royal Potcake Rescue and support of BAARK conducted a free spay and neuter clinic at the Moore’s Island Burial Society building (generously donated by the Burial Society) in New Bight. The attending vets were Dr. Chante Wildgoose and Dr. Deyanza Hanna of Freeport.
Getting everyone and all the supplies there was no easy feat. The BAARK truck packed with traps and crates was shipped from Nassau via mail boat, supplies such as more traps and crates, tents, food and other supplies were shipped by mail boat from Sandy Point and volunteers flew by charter airplane at their own expense. The payoff however was great; a total of 75 animals were spayed or neutered, 55 dogs and 20 cats.
The residents of Moore’s Island were awesome, very kind and appreciative and took full advantage of the opportunity to have their pets spayed or neutered.
A big thank you to all who helped make this undertaking a success.
