Our clinic site was donated by the Gerace Research Centre, a COB facility, where students from all over the States and the Bahamas study Archaeology, Biology, Geology and Marine Science. The staff and students could not have been more accommodating and some visiting veterinary students were even able to lend a hand too.
Such were the habits of the feral cats that it was felt we would have even more success if we also set up a night clinic in a maintenance facility at Club Med. Three volunteers and Dr Davis, who had all been on their feet since 7 am with the rest of the team, bravely volunteered to keep on working through the night to increase the number of cat spays and neuters. Unfortunately, the cats also seemed to have received this memo and refused to put in a show! The willing but weary volunteers called it a night at 11 pm and gladly hit their beds!
The Baark team have already been to Eleuthera and Andros this year and have plans to visit Abaco and also return to Andros. There will also be further initiatives in Nassau, following the one that was started in Kool Acres and Elizabeth Estates recently.
Baark! would also like to thank Bahamas Air for their generous discount on the flights and the Lady Emerald for the discounted fare to transport the Baark! truck.
