Animal shelters do amazing work. They take in animals who have no home and often those who have no hope. They care for them, love them and help them find their forever homes.
One animal rescue center goes above and beyond.
In fact, it will take your breath away. Imagine a tropical island vacation full of puppies who have all been rescued until they find their homes.
That’s exactly what you’ll find at Potcake Place.
Potcake Place is the only dog rescue organization on the Turks & Caicos island of Providenciales. Potcakes is the name given to the dogs commonly found on Caribbean islands.
Sadly, their name comes from the way they feed. These are the dogs who were left only with the leftovers in the bottom of the pot after local dogs had been fed.
But Potcake lovers know the real value of these dogs. They are known to be smart, loving and loyal. Adult Potcakes typically grow to be about 45 pounds with floppy ears.
Potcake Place is a fully functioning animal rescue organization, and the Potcakes are available for adoption. But Potcakes Place also encourages visitors to the island to help out.
Beachgoers can check out a puppy to take down to the beach.
Visitors love it and Potcake Places asserts that the process helps to socialize the Potcakes to make them more easily adopted. Not to mention, it’s just fun to play with a puppy.
Potcake Place is entirely volunteer run, and there are no fees to adopt a Potcake. All you have to do is provide a loving home.
If you happen to find yourself visiting the island of Providenciales, make sure to check the Potcake Place website before you go.
They have a wish list of items they need. And who knows…you might even come home with a new family member!
