New staff veterinarian to enhance spay and neuter program at the HSGB
Wednesday, 09 February 2011 07:01

FREEPORT, Grand Bahama -- Lots going on at the Humane Society of Grand Bahama these days.  We welcomed our Staff Veterinarian and Medical Director, Dr. Dawn Gibbs, on Monday, and we are so excited and happy to have her on board!   

Dr. Gibbs has a great deal of experience, including ten years of shelter medicine and management, and we look forward to a brighter healthier future for not only our shelter animals, but the animals of Grand Bahama in general.  We're still working out the logistics and organizational aspects, so stay tuned for updates on surgery hours, clinic hours, etc.  

We would like to let the public know the GBPA/HSGB spay/neuter voucher programme has changed somewhat. 

Free spays and neuters will still be offered to the public who need assistance, but vouchers will no longer be issued.  All GBPA/HSGB spays and neuters will be performed by Dr. Gibbs at the shelter, where we have a modern surgery suite with gas anesthesia machines and monitoring equipment.

More lives saved this week - 38 puppies and 8 dogs went to the U.S. on Tuesday - most to our rescue/shelter friends, and one lucky little dog to her new home on a six acre farm in Virginia! 

The pictures included here are just a few of the lucky puppies to get a second chance at life.  20 more dogs and puppies are spoken for by U.S. rescues, we just have to wait for weather to warm up in the states they must travel to.

This does not mean we don't have amazing dogs and puppies and cats and kittens in need of homes, however!  Please at least visit the HSGB shelter on Coral Rd. when you're thinking of adding a new four-legged family member.

Now that Dr. Gibbs has joined us, we can be surer than ever that we are adopting out healthy dogs and cats.  Our 30 day health guarantee still stands, and you sure can't beat our low adoption fees of $75 for dogs and puppies, and $50 for cats and kittens!

Our spay/neuter clinic in Eight Mile Rock is just days away.  Help is still needed in many areas, please email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it for more info.
