Operation Potcake Launched In Elizabeth – BAARK Launches Spay And Neuter Programme

Elizabeth MP Ryan Pinder is proving that BAARK is just as big as its bite.

His constituency partnered with the Bahamas Alliance for Animal Rights and Kindness (BAARK) over the weekend to launch ‘Operation Potcake in Elizabeth’.

“The constituents reported that the stray animals in the area were a major concern because they were devaluing the community and unsafe for the residents, especially the children. This initiative promises to address these concerns and make Elizabeth a safer and more pleasant living environment,” said Mr. Pinder.

The walkabout is a part of the Elizabeth Spay and Neuter Community Programme for residents, which allowed BAARK representatives to present information about animal welfare.

Fifteen animals were a part of the programme.

BAARK collected seven dogs and gave residents eight vouchers to transport their animals to the clinic.

As an ongoing initiative, more animals are expected to be collected and treated throughout the Elizabeth community.

‘Operation Potcake in Elizabeth,’ is the fourth initiative of the Elizabeth Community Enhancement Programme launched over the past six months.

In addition to Saturday’s spay and neutering programme, Mr. Pinder has launched the ‘Malcolm Creek Restoration Project,’ crime prevention community cleanups and the ‘Parks of Elizabeth Enhancement Project.’

The programme addresses the concerns of constituents with the focus of “enhancing the neighbourhood, building our community and adding value to Elizabeth,” he said.
