On 10 January Operation Potcake kicks off and weíre all madly scrambling around to get the final bits and pieces in place. We have sourced the majority of our supplies, accommodation has been organized for most volunteers, funds are continuously coming in (we still need lots of donations!) and marketing has also begun. Teams are putting up promotional posters in their areas this week. If you would still like to volunteer some time, even if itís just a day or two please get in touch!
Operation Potcake is January 10th to 21st, 2013. This campaign aims to sterilize 2,000 dogs and cats. We still need lots of volunteers and donation of items to make the campaign a real success. For more information visit www.operationpotcake.com
