The expression ‘dream come true’ now has an entirely new meaning. On the island of Providenciales in Turks and Caicos, visitors not only get to enjoy the amazing tropical beaches, luxurious resorts, and delicious cuisine, but are also able to play with, walk, and even adopt the most adorable puppies and rescue dogs.
Since 2005, a charity called Potcake Place has made it their mission to provide abandoned pooches with forever homes and loving families. The locals refer to their lovable collection of Labrador Retrievers, German Shepherds, and English Fox Terriers as Potcake pups.
If the idea of leaving a relaxing vacation with a new best friend, or even a few, it’s important to keep in mind that Potcake Place will only provide pups to people 25 years of age or older who are willing to commit to 10 to 15 years of companionship and love. If you fulfill the basic requirements, the adoption process is really quite simple. You fill out the application form and if Potcake Place considers you to be a responsible candidate, they reach out.
Once accepted, you select your new puppy and Potcake Place will help in the process of bringing your new friend home. They provide you with a care kit, along with all of the necessary paperwork that will need to be signed by your air carrier. Potcake Place clearly know what they are doing, as they also provide puppy adopters with print outs of every dog’s medical history, along with a record card of shots and information, as well as a health certificate from a veterinarian.
The best part of adopting from Potcake Place is that it won’t cost you a single penny. That’s right, all adoptions are free of charge. However, they request just a small donation to help them continue their incredible work. If you’re not ready to adopt just yet, don’t worry, Potcake Place will still let you play with all the pups for as long as you wish!
