Help spread the word ~ PREVENTION is the key!

*Please see that your puppy gets vaccinated against Parvo.
*Your puppy needs a series of shots 3 weeks apart, beginning at 7 weeks old.
*Parvo can live in the ground for months and infect your puppy.
It does not affect people or cats, but you can spread it from the bottom of your shoes.
*You cannot see the virus, only the results once the puppy is infected.

Spay/Neuter

Currently our volunteers go into the communities on Providenciales, Grand Turk and Middle Caicos to pick up animals for surgery and return them to their owners. Through the support of the community the TCSPCA has performed over 2500 spay/neuter surgeries. Each animal receives rabies & distemper vaccination, a vaccination certificate, and an id tag. Responsible pet ownership is discussed with the family and they are left with our pet care brochure.

Fundraising

Projects include the annual Christmas Fair, TCSPCA Dog Show, and our yearly calendar showcasing all the animals we have helped.

Other sources of revenue come from membership fees, private donations of money and pet related products including veterinary supplies and grants from the Potcake Foundation and the government Conservation Fund.

Animal Rescue

All animals in distress are rescued and placed with volunteers to recuperate. We work in conjunction with the Turks and Caicos Islands Fire and Rescue Service and individuals with specialized rescue skills.

Our “Red Bag” project is dedicated to picking up dead animals from roadways & private homes for the Turks and Caicos Islands Environmental Health Dept. to collect.

Foster/Adoption

Fostering is done in private homes by our volunteers. The program is limited to 10 animals at any one time. Our preference is to adopt on island since it gives us an opportunity to involve families in pet care and to promote spay/neuter of other animals they might own.

A small number are adopted off-island and the donations of monies and pet products we receive from these adoptions go to support our other programs. Each animal is checked by a veterinarian and receives its vaccinations and an adoption certificate.

Education

At least once a year we visit every Turks and Caicos Islands school to talk about responsible pet ownership. Our costumed mascot “Lucky, the Potcake” accompanies us to show children how to handle and care for dogs. We are working on getting the schools to incorporate our educational package into the school curriculum.

We visit communities to demonstrate how to bath animals to rid them of ticks, fleas and mange. In the near future we will be have a column in the weekly newspapers dedicated to animal issues. We also give guest lectures about animal issues to various organizations such as Rotary, Kiwanis and the Hotel Association.

Animal Control

We are working closely with the Turks and Caicos Islands government to develop a comprehensive Animal Control & Welfare plan for the country.

This plan includes the hiring of staff and setting up policies and procedures to deal with such issues as stray animals, dog registration, cruelty and the enforcement of the newly passed Dog Control Ordinance.

We are also lobbying government to put the proper procedures and policies in place to qualify the country for the Pet Passport Scheme.

We assist residents & hotels in how to deal with problems of stray or feral dogs on their property.

Special Projects

The TCSPCA, in conjunction with the Pegasus Foundation and WSPA, is working to improve the conditions at the horse and donkey pound in Grand Turk and to come up with long term solutions for these animals.

We are also working with residents on Pine Cay and the DECR to help with the control of feral cats in an effort to save the endangered Turks and Caicos Islands Rock Iguana.

Mottlee Cruise

One of the islandís cutest potcakes, Mottlee Cruise was rescued by a lady who preferred cats but could not leave the scrawny, scruffy pup. She fostered him until he was adopted a month later. When he was young, sweet Mottlee was a great foster parent to kittens who suckled on his ears and pups that thought his once hairless tail was a toy. He used to entertain everyone by break dancing on the deck in the afternoons. He was a wonderful pet and brother to Dylan and Radar Love.

The TCSPCA is the oldest and most established Animal Welfare Organization in the Turks & Caicos Islands. It was established by Belongers in 1998. We are a non profit, registered charity and we are dependant on donations. Please consider this worthwhile cause.
Thankyou.
