Grand Turk host SPCA Clinic

The museum assisted the Turks & Caicos SPCA on Grand Turk by allowing them to hold their Spay and Neuter clinic in the Science Building. The clinic was held from November 14th to November 20th and was a huge success. There were over 90 animals that were treated! They even had a chicken show up! The space was well suited for the clinic and the central location made it easy for pet owners to bring in their pets. We had many children show up on a day that school was cancelled due to weather. The children learned about the importance of spay and neutering their pets and even watched the surgeries. Our own director Michael Pateman ended up adopting two puppies. One of our prior volunteers from Florida, Kelly Scudder-Temple, also adopted a puppy. This is another event that benefits the community that we were proud to participate in.
A very well done and thank you to the
TCSPCA volunteers, veterinarian and vet tech that also volunteered their time for this important cause.
