Three years and stronger than ever! Yet nothing would have been
accomplished without support and commitment from you, our members,
donors, sponsors, partners and volunteers. Reaching our goals depends on
all of you, and for that the Board of Directors, its Officers and Leadership
Team are extremely grateful.
During this past year, perhaps the most significant priority from last years
Goals Timeline deals with reducing the overpopulation of SVGs dogs and
cats. Through no fault of theirs, thousands of our stray and owned companion animals roam
the streets malnourished, diseased and in pain. Its a depressing sight, but their suffering
and the pity we feel for them isnt the only downside of the problem: rampant numbers of
uncared for dogs and cats also negatively impact the general health and well-being of
SVGs residents, physically through zoonosis (animal-to-human diseases) and
psychologically, even if on a subconscious level. The economy is also affected through
ruined crops, killed livestock and reduced tourism, visitors generally not being immune and
indifferent to these sights and not particularly anxious to see them again. And so they say on
social media. Whats encouraging is that this cruelty, which the collective we commit, is
preventable by the humane method of spaying and neutering.
That said, last years goal of acquiring and operating a mobile clinic has become a reality;
the Vet Mobile is here! And it seems to be a contributing factor to the increase of
sterilisations at our community clinics. More information on the clinics is given on the
following pages.
This past year has also seen other achievements: 106 dogs, cats (and one donkey) rescued
from tragic circumstances, an increase of 42 over last year; public awareness of who the
VSPCA is and what it does is on the rise; and our presence on the Grenadine islands is
growing.
To keep up this pace and to expand not only in the number of sterilisations needed for a
zero-population growth - we need assistance in many other areas, such as humane
education in schools. We need the help of our Government in the enforcement of the
Protection of Animals Act. We need a rehabilitation shelter and clinic. More funds are
needed. More volunteers. More veterinarians, both local and visiting, willing to donate their
time and skills for free, even one day a month. And we need more cooperation with
stakeholders.

I sincerely hope all can see and appreciate the difference we have made this year. I take
this opportunity to ask the Ministries of Health, Finance, Agriculture and Tourism to come on
board with us, take an active part and help us. Its a tall order to fill, but with so many
animal and human lives (and livelihoods) in jeopardy, everyones help is needed. We look
forward to an outstanding fourth year, and together we can make this happen!

VSPCA COMMUNITY ANIMAL CLINICS


Early on VSPCA members recognized that one major cruelty to our companion animals that of allowing thousands of them to be born into
lives of hunger, disease and pain was a cruelty that could be prevented by the proven, humane, long-term solution of spaying and
neutering.
Different methods were tried, but to reach rural communities throughout St Vincent and the Grenadines where vet services are infrequent to
non-existent, the board of directors decided that a mobile veterinary unit was needed. Through the generosity of two major benefactors the
Grenadines Partnership Fund and Beacon Insurance this goal was reached in a little over two years. Now, the VSPCAs
primary veterinarian, Dr Eric Audain, and his usual crew of volunteers Traudl Arthur, Lisa Walker, Carolyn Mawson-Lee,
Robert Bradley, Ivona Bradley and Ruth Ross arrive at their destination in a cheerfully decorated van filled with all the
supplies needed to perform surgeries and other procedures for the dogs and cats of low-income families. 33 communities
both before and after the May 2014 Vet Mobile debut have been visited this fiscal year (1 September 2013 31 August
2014), including Bequia (three times) and Canouan.
Since May 2014, the number of dogs and cats being sterilised has skyrocketed. During the first year of VSPCAs
operation there were 75 subsidised spays and neuters; the second fiscal year saw 181; and 617 total for this third year,
with 327 being post-Vet Mobile. Whether its because of word-of-mouth communication, flyers and posters, media
coverage (thank you especially Searchlight newspaper), curiosity surrounding the Vet Mobile, along with hard work on
the part of volunteers, the results are astounding.
And hard work these clinics are. Volunteers dont just assist 10 to 12 hours one day every two weeks or so. Pre-planning
begins at the completion of the current clinics last surgery. Supplies are inventoried as workers clean the van and
surgical areas; the next community to be visited is discussed and decided upon; a location near water
and electricity is sought; flyers, posters and brochures are created, printed and distributed; ads are
placed with the media.
Its an on-going job, yet the satisfaction that comes from not only helping the animals of SVG, but the people and
nation as a whole, is a deep, heartfelt one. You, too, can share this feeling by donating your time, money or goods
(including fundraising auction items) to help the VSPCA continue towards its goal of zero-population growth for SVGs
dogs and cats.
Please help prevent this kind of cruelty.
