After a meeting between local organisers and representatives of the Veterinary Medical Association of the Bahamas (VMAB) it was announced that Operation Potcake will move forward as originally planned… and even more foreign vets will be participating. This increase in international vets was suggested by the VMAB despite their original objections about allowing the foreign vets in at all.
The Operation Potcake Steering Committee was also formed and in future will consist of the four members of the VMAB executive committee, President of the Bahamas Humane Society, President of Baark! and two animal welfare representatives.
A statement released by Operation Potcake read: “This heralds a new chapter of communication and co-operation between the animal welfare organizations, veterinarians and all animal lovers. We look forward to many successful spay and neuter clinics that will resolve the problems of stray dogs and cats in the entire archipelago of The Bahamas.”
