Potcakes Now Being Served at Turks and Caicos!
If you think meeting Jojo at Grace Bay is fun, this beach holds even more excitement! For about 2 hours each day, puppies (with their handlers) roam the beach to meet and greet guests of Grace Bay! It is adorable and the guests love it! Not to worry if you are not a puppy fan; their handlers are there! But who doesn’t love puppies!
The organization is known as Potcakes Place. The goal of the 2 hour beach walks is to socialize these puppies, give them exercise and of course! they are available for adoption.
But why are these puppies called Potcakes? Potcake is the name given to the dogs of the Bahamas and the Turks & Caicos Islands. It came about because the locals fed the caked remains of the cooking pot to the dogs. As generations have passed, Potcakes have evolved into a breed which is extremely smart, loyal and loving.
Potcakes are rescued from around the islands of the Turks & Caicos by Potcake Place Rescue. Litters of puppies as well as individual pups are found wandering without their littermates.
The Potcake handlers even have a system in place to help guests of Turks and Caicos take this puppies home with them from vacation! So not to worry if you are here and decide to leave with a bit of love!
Singer and artist Phil Stubbs even donated a song to the Potcake Rescue cause! Enjoy!
