Operation Potcake – the Bahamas

Operation Potcake – the Bahamas

Operation Potcake may have been the largest street dog TNR project ever undertaken. We led a coalition of the local animal welfare organizations, consisting of; The Bahamas Humane Society (BHS), Bahamas Alliance for Animal Rights and Kindness (Baark!), The Veterinary Medical Association of the Bahamas (VMAB), The Department of Agriculture, Animals Require Kindness Association (ARK), The Pink Potcake, and Proud Paws. We held 5 high-volume, high-standard clinics simultaneously for 2 weeks on Nassau, Bahamas in 2013. We recruited over 200 international volunteers and sterilized over 2315 dogs. The project was in the headlines every day during the campaign. At the end of the project, Prime Minister Christie held a reception for all volunteers and in his speech, which was on local television, he declared that as Operation Potcake was such a tremendous success, that he would now declare it an annual event.
