Want to help animals and have fun in the Bahamas? Volunteers are needed for an Abaco Spay/Neuter Clinic being held in Marsh Harbour April 24 to 26 (Friday to Sunday).
Sponsored by Royal Potcake Rescue USA, BAARK, the Abaco Shelter, Hope Town Humane Society and the Island Veterinary Clinic, the 3-day event will provide free sterilization for local dogs and cats to help control and reduce the stray populations.
Volunteers must arrive in Marsh Harbour (MHH) on or before Thursday, April 23 and stay through to Monday, April 27. Accommodations will be provided for out-of-towners, though you’ll be responsible for your own travel costs (which I understand may be tax-deductible.)
You’ll also be responsible for your housing, transportation and other expenses before or after the clinic weekend, if you choose to come earlier or stay longer. (If I were you, I’d stick around a week and come to Green Turtle Cay for the Island Roots Heritage Festival May 1-3…)
Interested? You’ll need to complete a Volunteer Application before April 1. For more information, contact Royal Potcake Rescue USA through their website or Facebook page. And for a preview of what to expect, here’s my report from last year’s event.
