Potcake Place Foundation- a rescue for man & his best friend!
Imagine being surrounded by crystal clear seas, white sandy beaches, hot weather with a chilled beer in hand. Life couldn't get much better right? Well we have news for you pirate because in the middle of the Caribbean there's an island full of dogs!
Sun, sea and suspicious licks
So where can one dog loving pirate find this paradise? You'll find it on the Providenciales Island in Turks and Caicos. The people behind it are the Potcake Place Foundation who rescue dogs and pass them onto new owners. You'll find a mix of Labradors, Golden Retrievers, German Shepherds and Terriers roaming around the beaches just looking for lots of belly rubs.
What does Potcake Place do?
Since 2005, the foundation has been rescuing dogs and adopting is free because the foundation is funded by donations from visitors, there are currently between 50 to 70 dogs on the island which will make your Caribbean dreams come true. There are a few conditions though:
- To adopt you must be at least 25 years old
- All adopting families should be aware that a dog is for life and not just for Christmas
- You need to apply to Potcake and the adopting takes place on site
- You can find their website here

“From rags to riches!” These lucky rescue pups were rescued by @potcakeplacek9rescue Turks and Caicos and are waiting for good homes (but this foster home looks pretty nice!) 🐾Please adopt don’t shop! There are so many loving animals waiting for good homes in animal shelters. 🐾Give them the love and dignity they deserve! #adoptdontshop #potcakeplace #animalrescue #dogs #puppies (Photo reposted from @potcakeplacek9rescue) #turksandcaicos #rescuesrule #waitingforadoption #adoptme
What happens if I'm accepted for a dog?
Potcake Place helps you after you've been accepted for your new best friend. You'll receive all the medical information as well as a vaccination card with all the necessary vaccinations and some basic equipment so that your four legged friend feels at home in their new home.
If you're not sure you want to take on a four legged friend home, then no problem, you'll still bring joy to these puppers, you'll be able to swim, play on the beach and go running with them!
Who's booking a trip straight to Turks & Caicos then?

One of the highlights of my hard non stop working day was getting to walk one of the pups. I took ‘Hobie’ out, a clever, inquisitive little gal who I just clicked with straight away from the minute I started helping there. She was so full of love and adventure, it was a pleasure to help her out in her happy daily life in the centre before she finds her furever home and adoptive humans. Some pups liked the beach, some didnt. Some liked the water, some didn’t. But you get to learn their personalities super quickly and the attachment is real 😍 If you are in Turks and Caicos on your vacation you are allowed to volunteer to puppy walk each morning. You get given everything you need, and sign waivers and forms and are checked before you can take them. There’s always lots of dogs that need walking so if you’re wanting a fun way to spend a morning of your trip then head down to Potcake Place and help these wonderful humans and pups out....you won’t regret it . . . http://www.potcakeplace.com #potcakeplace #potcakeplacek9rescue #turksandcaicos #provo #puppy #beach #dogsofinstagram #dogsofinsta
